PM Replies To Death Hoax/Rumor

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Cambodian PM says opposition will rue his death
“In case I had suffered a massive stroke as was reported, you please should pack up your things and flee. I am speaking honestly, because the ability to command all the armed forces belongs to only one person,” he said, clearly referring to himself. He advised his critics not to wish for his death, and if he should fall victim to such a thing as a stroke, they better be prepared because anything could happen to them.
Funny to see him finally admitting that it's a dictatorship...

You would think there are some succession plans in place. Be interesting to know what they are likely to be.

Of course all bets are off when the actual event occours. How many branches of the Armed forces/ Police are there in this country?

Cambodia is so lucky to have had him available when
the king father was looking for someone who could run
the country. I bet that there was NO MONEY for a budget
and a lot of need for spending.

Those are very strong words in the Khmer language. In general, Khmers take these kind of curses very seriously.

Responding to rumours swirling on social media that he had suffered a massive stroke and died, Prime Minister HE proved to be very much alive during an animated speech in Kampot province yesterday.

Addressing a crowd in Chhuok district, the 63-year-old premier assured listeners that he wouldn’t die for at least another 30 years, and that, far from having a stroke, he was actually shaving a few strokes off of his golf game the day after he had allegedly been whisked away for treatment in Singapore.

“My father died at 90 years old at least, and my grandfather was 93 years old, and I will be more than 93 years old,” he said. “On Friday afternoon, I, along with cabinet members, was having a meeting with the King, and then I played golf on Saturday and Sunday.”

Here's to 30 more years of good and fair governance with equal opportunity for all.
