Honoured to be one of the mentors for aspiring young leaders under the Razak Leadership Program, a brainchild of Tan Sri Nazir Razak, longtime Chairman of CIMB.

“Public policy, advocacy & grit in the pursuit for change – equipped with such tools, youths can move mountains.”

The program is under the purview of Tan Sri Nazir Razak, the younger brother of former Prime Minister and convicted felon Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

‘Disappointed with MUDA’

Netizens did not take too kindly with Lim’s tweet and expressed their disappointment in his association with Nazir Razak.

“So looks like MUDA is nothing more than a Trojan horse for the Malaysian oligarchs and pirates to ride back to political prominence.”

“Why though? Please la. Traumatic to see any kind of association with the “Razak” family. Can MUDA/MUDA members just stay away from them?”

“People like Wei Jiet are not just politicians. He’s also thinking about his career as a lawyer, to further his ambitions, to reach the influence and financial goals he so desires. He needs opportunities like this for that.”
