Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad revealed today, 5 October that the government declined an unnamed company's offer to donate RM100 million to Tabung Harapan
Tun Mahathir called the donation "suspicious" and believed that the company had ulterior motives, according to Malay Mail.
"It is clear that those who wanted to donate had other intentions. That is for the Tabung Harapan, but what if a similar donation happened to a political party? We will end up with the old ways," he said after the Pakatan Harapan presidential council meeting in Putrajaya.
As of today, 5 October, the fund has collected over RM195 million
However, Tun Mahathir previously said that the government is mulling closing the fund soon
