KUALA LUMPUR: Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is 93 today but his stamina in undertaking his duties as Prime Minister continues to fascinate Malaysians and foreigners alike.
Indeed, Dr Mahathir – who was born on July 10, 1925, – had hit the ground running ever since he was sworn in as Malaysia’s seventh Prime Minister in May, shouldering the heavy responsibility of helming the country with much vigour.
Many were keen to know what kept him going, so much so that a photograph of him having a meal with a particular multi-vitamin product drew much attention.
Dr Mahathir was ever willing to share what made him tick, stressing the importance of keeping an active lifestyle even after retirement age.
“I would prefer to rest, of course, but I would like to advise people not to rest when they grow old,” he said during a recent trip to Tokyo on how he remained healthy.
Dr Mahathir, who has the distinction of being the oldest Prime Minister in the world, explained that muscles would deteriorate if they were not used. - Bernama
