JOHOR BAHRU: Johor menteri besar Onn Hafiz Ghazi has denied allegations that he had bought a pair of shoes costing tens of thousands of ringgit.
In a Facebook post, he explained that the shoes were a gift from Johor’s Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar.
“Such accusations and attacks should be stopped. This is a gift from the Sultan of Johor. This is not a new thing, His Majesty had previously given state executive council members and state government officials gifts to motivate them to work hard for the people,” he said in the posting.
Earlier, today several Chinese dailies reported that allegations had been made on social media that Onn had made such an expensive purchase.
