Oh dear, Tan Sri Adenan Satem has passed away 🙁
Reports say that Sarawak Chief Minister died just a few hours ago, approximately 1:20pm, at the Sarawak General Hospital Heart Centre in Kota Samarahan.
The Star reported that Adenan, who lead the Barisan Nasional (BN) to a resounding victory in the last Sarawak election – winning 72 state seats, died of a heart attack.
The respected leader had previously spoken about his close encounter with death due to a heart ailment 4 years ago. “3 years ago I was very sick. I was at the National Heart Institute (IJN in Kuala Lumpur) and in Singapore. And there was a time I thought I was going. I called all my relatives, my children and grandchildren,” he told Bernama.
He would have turned 73 on 27th January 2017.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family, friends, and loved ones. May you rest in peace Tan Sri Adenan Satem.
