S’poreans react to Minister K Shanmugam’s comment that dentist should have fought Cecil the lion with bare hands

Posted on 31 July 2015

Three thoughts that must have went past your mind at some point.


Law and Foreign Affairs Minister K Shanmugam has put up a Facebook post saying that the American dentist should have fought Cecil the lion in an unarmed combat duel instead of shooting it dead from afar.

This is what Minister Shanmugam wrote:

“The dentist could perhaps have considered engaging in combat unarmed if he really felt that he wanted to test himself against a lion. That would be some test.”

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:


sian-half-auntie “This is the same as saying that Minister Shanmugam will contest Low Thia Khiang one-on-one in an SMC instead of feeling secure in a GRC.”
Shi Zi, 42-year-old credit analyst


sian-half-uncle “I miss the good old days where politicians used money to win votes instead of saying populist things on social media.”
Gong Wei, 62-year-old speech therapist


happy-bird-girl “I would love to see K Shanmugam fight opposition politicians with his bare hands this General Election 2015 instead of giving speeches.”
Sio Pah, 17-year-old martial artist
