Wan Azizah, the former deputy prime minister, celebrated her 70-year-old birthday yesterday (Dec 3). Her husband, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, devoted a birthday post to his beloved wife.
In a Facebook post, he posted a photo of his wife taken during his first media conference as Malaysia’s 10th Prime Minister on Nov 24 along with birthday wishes.
Anwar described Wan Azizah as a strong, compassionate, and dedicated lady, wife, and mother who was relentless in offering love and care.
“Without Azizah by my side, I would not have been able to undertake such a great responsibility at this time,” said Anwar.
“I am eternally grateful.” I pray that Azizah is always in His care. Happy birthday.”
Wan Azizah and Anwar married on Feb 28, 1980 and are blessed with six children.
Netizens also filled the comment area with birthday greetings for the prime minister’s wife.
