She ain't heavy 她不会很重
"But I am strong,
strong enough to carry,
She ain't heavy,
She is my Rosmah，
So on we go"
( Tune of "He ain't heavy" by the Hollies)
Lately, Malaysia Prime Minister Najib has been singing this tune over and over again, just to re-assure his support to Rosmah, his controversial wife.
The latest being her lavish shopping spree in Perth, Australia. A columnist in Sydney Morning Herald revealed that Rosmah, with Najib in tow on holiday in Perth, spent Au$100,000 at a local boutique.
Rosmah had recently been under fire for allegedly purchasing a diamond ring worth RM24 million, which she has vehemently denied, and for owning several Hermes handbags worth thousands of ringgit including a US$200,000 crocodile skin handbag.
Rosmah caught national limelight when she was implicated in the murder case of Mongolian woman Altantuya in 2006 by famous blogger Raja Petra Bin Raja Kamaruddin. In a statutory declaration, he declared that Rosmah was present at the scene of crime with 2 other persons. Najib was then the Deputy Prime Minister.
The ghost of Altantuya still until today haunts Najib and Rosmah, and will continue to be one of the hot topics in the coming 13th general election.
