Among many things announced in the past few days, Amanah president Haji Mohamad bin Sabu a.k.a. Mat Sabu was unveiled as the country's new Defence Minister... much to Malaysians' delight.

Malaysians were especially tickled pink that the "cute" politician will be overseeing national security. So much so that netizens began congratulating him with memes and Photoshop battles:

... And this video of Mat Sabu explaining 1MDB in a ceramah

Mat Sabu got the portfolio of Ministry of Defence. Just to share, this is the video clip I used in my digital campaigns to explain to the rural Malays about 1MDB. Tony Pua might have done a much better job with us urbanites but to the rural folks, this guy deserves a huge credit! Salute, Mr Defence Minister.
