It was revealed that the viral murals of our national leaders in Shah Alam were vandalised earlier on Monday (20th July). The faces of our Agong, Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, and Health DG Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah were sprayed with red-coloured spray paint.
Soon after the news made headlines, another Twitter user @amrlfazreq uploaded a CCTV footage of the incident. Much to everyone’s surprise, the irresponsible act was apparently committed by two women – not men!
Scrolling through the replies, many social media users expressed their shock upon coming across the clip. Additionally, others pointed out that the footage can definitely help the investigation by combining it with other CCTV footages at other premises nearby the location.
Following that, one of the mural artist Suhaimi Ali took to his Facebook to address the case. He wrote, “Thank you for supporting my talent and allowing me to showcase it to everyone. And I’m sorry, no more murals in U12 for the public to come and snap pictures. The heroes are gone.”
Following the unexpected incident, the Shah Alam city council took swift action by painting the mural wall with white paint. The identity of the 2 culprits have not been revealed yet, as investigations are still underway.
