A big heartfelt CONGRATULATIONS and SYABAS to all the Malaysians who worked tirelessly to get the thousands of Malaysian students in Egypt to safety. The Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF), the Royal Malaysian Navy (RMN), Malaysia Airlines (MAS) and Air Asia among others. 10,000 students from Egypt’s capital of Cairo are safely evacuated to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. The operation to evacuate all 11,319 Malaysian students out of harm’s way is expected to be completed by Monday.
And of course, we must not forget the efforts of FLOM, Rosmah who said she had also made some calls because she could not stand by and watch the students suffer “as some of them had nothing to eat”.
“As a mother, how could I not act? I feel for all the mothers whose children are studying there. I am glad I could help.
“Some of the Malaysian officials, aware of my Saudi connections, also asked me to assist. My husband was busy so that was why I helped,” she said.
“I could not afford to take any risk by waiting as every minute matters in a situation like this. Waiting a minute could cost lives. That’s why I made the call to the Saudis,” she said.
“Of course, I reported to him (Najib) what I did later.”
So it was FLOM who made the call to the Saudi's. But at least she told Najib afterwards.
