1923 to 2015 RIP
Hailed as the father of Singapore, Lee Kuan Yew has always been known for his hard handed tactics in running the country, bringing Singapore from a developing 3rd world country to it’s status as one of world’s finest cities. Some people even felt that this much feared and respected politician will always be around, but of course he is just flesh and bones like the rest of us. Rest in peace Lee Kuan Yew.
What does this imply for Singapore’s future?
The Lee family has been running the country (relatively) well for the past 50 years, and this year 2015 will be Singapore’s 50th birthday as publicized by SG50 (1 day public holiday to celebrate the occasion!). Whether one agree or disagree with Lee Kwan Yew’s brand of politics, we all agree that Singapore wouldn’t be what it is today if not for him.
May he rest in peace, with his loving wife, Kwa Geok Choo (who passed away in 2010).
