Pak Samad in Critical Condition
I have just been informed that veteran journalist and my former boss, Tan Sri A Samad Ismail has been admitted to the Pantai Medical Centre's Intensive Care Unit for lung infection. His son-in-law Azmi M Anshar informed me via sms that his condition is critical but stable and that the "prognosis" was not encouraging.
He is 84.
I invite all Malaysians to pray for his quick recovery. Pak Samad's contributions to journalism, politics and national development are enormous and beyond compare.
