Singaporeans from all walks of life with varying levels of general knowledge are in a state of shock.

This after they read a Facebook update by deputy prime minister Teo Chee Hean saying he “learnt a lot” from watching Channel NewsAsia‘s documentary, Days of Rage: Konfrontasi.

They expressed their disappointment that the deputy prime minister doesn’t know these things by hard and has to learn about a pivotal aspect of Singapore’s violent nation-building history only this late in his life now.

One Singaporean, Zhen Chong Ming, said: “I can’t believe our deputy prime minister only learnt about the historical facts of Konfrontasi only now. Shouldn’t he be privy to all the details considering that he is running this country?”

“Why is he learning a lot only now from watch a CNA programme? This is disturbing.”

At press time, it is unclear how many members of parliament have also learnt a lot from the CNA documentary or missed it completely, which means they learnt nothing.
