LANGKAWI - Figuratively speaking, it was a landing that seemed more massive than the famous eagle that’s perched on the island.
Malaysians set social media alight when word got around that Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and his wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor had arrived here with 30 luggages.
Apparently, the former prime minister, his wife and their children had checked into a hotel here.
“They arrived by flight at about 7.10pm on Saturday,” a source said.
It is understood that former Langkawi MP Datuk Nawawi Ahmad, former Ayer Hangat assemblyman Datuk Mohd Rawi Abdul Hamid, former Kuah assemblyman Nor Saidi Nanyan and two others met Najib at the hotel.
“I saw Nawawi, the ex-Barisan Nasional MP. He confirmed that Najib and family just arrived with 30 luggages,” claimed one netizen.
One senior hotel manager, who declined to be named, confirmed that the couple and their children had checked into the hotel.
It is believed that Najib will be here until June 20 and that he will indulge in golf here.
On May 12, three days after GE14, a big crowd gathered at the Subang Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport in Selangor after their alleged flight itinerary to Indonesia was leaked out.
Those who went to the airport wanted to “prevent” Najib from leaving the country.
However, there was no sign of Najib and his wife there.
There was further drama when a white multi-purpose vehicle with tinted windows arrived at the airport.
As it turned out, the person inside the car was former minister Datuk Seri Shahidan Kassim.
