S’poreans praise Khaw Boon Wan for taking tips from Lui Tuck Yew on how to step down

Posted on 15 January 2016

A step in the right direction as he hasn’t committed hara-kiri yet.


Singaporeans from all walks of life, who like to see other people take the initiative, have come out to praise Transport Minister Khaw Boon Wan.

This after Minister Khaw posted a photo of him and Lui Tuck Yew together on Facebook.

One Singaporean, Tui Siew, said Minister Khaw is doing the right thing by learning from Lui Tuck Yew on how to step down: “This is a good sign. It shows that Khaw Boon Wan is stepping down as Transport Minister and learning the finer points on how to do it.”

Other Singaporeans who saw the photo said they believe Minister Khaw might have to take a few more lessons as he is not very good with following instructions.

Another local, Zi Sha, said: “The last time Minister Khaw Boon Wan said if you did something wrong, you must come out to admit your mistake publicly and commit hara-kiri.”

“But he did not even follow his own advice.”

“I hope he can meet with Lui Tuck Yew more often.”

“This will help speed up the process.”
