KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 14– Universiti Malaysia Sabah student Veveonah Mosibin, whose video of her climbing a tree to gain internet access went viral last June, was honoured to have received a dinner invitation with Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.
Describing Muhyiddin as humble and awesome, Veveonah via her post on Instagram, said the invitation was a gesture of appreciation from the prime minister.
”Stay awesome!!!! It was such an honor for me & my parents to be invited to have dinner with Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, 8th Prime Minister of Malaysia. He is such a humble and amazing person. Thank you so much, Tan Sri,” her posting read.
On Sept 3, Deputy Minister of Communications and Multimedia Datuk Zahidi Zainul Abidin’s response to a supplementary question in the Dewan Negara on Veveonah, who had to climb a tree to gain stronger internet connection in the interior of Sabah, sparked controversy.
