“Keep Bung Moktar in line, he is tarnishing Parliament’s image”

Willie Mongin

KUCHING, August 8: Kinabatangan MP Bung Moktar Radin should be restrained as his behaviour may tarnish the sanctity of Parliament.

In making the suggestion, Puncak Borneo MP Willie Mongin said Bung tend to utter baseless accusations and irresponsible statements and at times use vulgar words, like the case where Bung hurled the ‘f***’ word at him.

“What he (Bung) is doing will jeopardise the image of Parliament,” Willie told DayakDaily during a phone interview.

Bung also liked to remind MPs from Pakatan Harapan (PH) to behave but kept quiet even though the behaviours of some BN MPs were worse, claimed Mongin.

“He accused Thomas Su (PH-Kampar) of engaging hookers. Later, he accused me of drinking with prostitutes,” lamented Willie.

“He cannot simply make accusations like this in Parliament.”

Mongin said even though Bung had wronged him, he was not taking it to heart, as he knew Bung was merely trying to make him look bad by fabricating the story.

On Bung challenging him to a fight, Willie said he was ready for the challenge, be it in Parliament or in a ring.

“He asked me for a fight, so I told him to just name the date and place. I am still waiting for his response,” said Willie.

Willie agreed he picked on Bung in Parliament yesterday because Bung was being “very annoying” by interrupting MPs when they were talking, especially those from PH. Yesterday, he interrupted Khairy Jamaluddin (BN-Rembau).

When Khairy sought more information about the sales and services tax (SST), Bung interjected by saying he went to the market to check on the prices of goods. At this juncture, Willie stood up and asked Bung, “Casino, is it?” purportedly with reference to a picture showing Bung gambling in a casino.

Feeling slighted, Bung described Mongin as “rude”, a “samseng” and demanded him to retract the statement. And that was when Bung used the ‘f***’ word on Mongin. That led to an uncontrollable commotion in the august House.

Bung later retracted his remark, which he admitted was impolite. But in retracting his remark, he added, “I saw him drinking with prostitutes, but I don’t care.” — DayakDaily
