Former Yang Dipertua Negeri Melaka dies

FORMER Yang Dipertua Negeri of Melaka Tun Syed Ahmad Shahabudin died on Monday. He was 83, Bernama reports.

Melaka state secretary Datuk Omar Kaseh said Syed Ahmad died of old age at his residence at Jalan Burhanudin Helmi 2, Taman Tun Dr Ismail in Kuala Lumpur at 7.45 am.

His remains will be taken to the Dewan Seri Negeri in Ayer Keroh, Melaka, for the people to pay their last respects, said Omar.

He said Syed Ahmad would be buried at the Melaka Warriors Mausoleum at the Al Azim Mosque after the Asar prayers.

Syed Ahmad was a former mentri besar of Kedah and the fifth Yang Dipertua Negeri of Melaka.

AL-FATIHAH. Semoga rohnya ditempatkan di kalangan mereka yang akan menghuni surgaNya........ Amin!


Note: Melaka never had someone from the state as its own Yang Dipertua Negeri. Nobody is fit for that position?

al-fatihah. sekurang-kurangnya beliau pernah berjasa kepada rakyat melaka, biarpun dia orang kedah. yg macam ni lah kita mahu. letak di mana pun, dia cuma fikir kepentingan negara, bukan kenegerian!
