Dato’ Seri Wan Azizah, better known as Kak Wan among close friends, inspires many women to be a better version of themselves. Dato’ Seri Wan Azizah carries her dignity as a woman with grace and confidence, thus making her the ‘main character’ whenever she’s on the scene. Like a magnet, she attracts the camera’s attention. Sometimes, it looks like she steals her husband’s spotlight with all the focus on her.
It’s not only because she’s the wife of now-10th prime minister, Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim. Safe to say, Dato’ Seri has crafted her own path and ‘territory’ as a prolific woman politician in Malaysia. One of her most applaudable achievements was becoming the 12th Deputy Prime Minister during the reign of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
Dato’ Seri Wan Azizah’s kind help touched Dato’ Sri Alexander’s heart
The former medical doctor has empathy running in her blood. Despite being in the gruesome world of politics, Dato’ Seri keeps her core close to home. Always down to earth and kind, according to close members, she’s often praised for putting people’s needs first.
We can see this assumption coming to life when the Minister of Work, Dato’ Sri Alexander Nanta Linggi, shared a tweet last night.
The parliamentary session has been going on for a few days. Of course, the session will be long and tiring as almost every minister has to voice their concern and plans for the country’s development. Therefore, that’s why we often see them dozing off in the hall.
Thus, aware of Alexander’s condition, Dato’ Seri Wan Azizah gifted him something prior to the session.
“Alex, I brought this for you to help ease the pain in your knee.”
“Alex, I brought this for you to help ease the pain on your knee,” kata YB Dato' Seri @drwanazizah sblm sidang dewan b’mula pg tadi.
Walau t’kejut, sy begitu t’sentuh & terharu dgn keprihatinan beliau. Sisi lain beliau yg lbh mesra disapa ‘Kak Wan’ yg tidak terlihat di mata umum pic.twitter.com/A5tkyCRLGT

Dato’ Sri Alexander said although he was surprised by the gift, the gesture touched him. He added it’s another side of ‘Kak Wan’ that not many can see.
Politics aside, humanity stands in the fight for power. We hope her act inspires many people to do good for others.
