Oldest Woman in World from Malaysia

The Sun newspaper published the above front page news on 6 March 2014, but failed to check with Election Commission on the actual oldest woman in the world,  a Malaysian by the name of Wong Kwan Moy. Read the below to find out the details.

It was not that long ago that our newspapers published the death of Malaysia's oldest manAbdul Rahman Abu Bakar or Pak Man, at the age of 117. While we felt happy that he was the oldest man in Malaysia, we felt sad that he had left us on 9 September 2012. The oldest woman in MalaysiaLabkura Khetani, passed away some time earlier this year on 17 March 2012. She was 105 year old. There was a further news of a living oldest woman in Malaysia by the name of Che Sapiah believed to be 115 years old but her age could not be confirmed since her identity card stated that she was born in 1924, recording her age at only 88.

All these exciting news of oldest persons in Malaysia were published in our main stream newspapers. Rightly so, we should cherish their health and age. What puzzle me is that our main stream newspapers have completely ignored our other even older persons in Malaysia on record.

For instance, Wong Kwan Moy who stays in Setiawangsa, Kuala Lumpur. Her age is now 159 and she is turning 160 on 23 August next year. She may well be the oldest person in the world! Wong Kwan Moy was born in 1853. I wish to question our main stream media why they have somehow ignored or neglected her presence. This has resulted in an unintended favouratism. I have screen shot of her identity to prove her age. She is a voter in Setiawangsa parliamentary constituency.

In fact, there is another lady that is older than Che Sapiah's age which is believed to be 115. Tey Kim was born in 1890 and she is now 122 years old. She is a voter in Lawas parliamentary constituency, Sarawak. Her details are stated in the screenshot.

I think I am fair to say that due diligence should be done before our main stream newspapers like Star and NST publish the news of oldest persons in Malaysia. Wong Kwan Moy and Tey Kim may not be too  pleased to read the news recognizing other Malaysians as oldest persons while they are actually older. They have official record to prove their case. Star and NST perhaps owe them an apology.

Interestingly, there are many fascinating news that can be found in our official records such as electoral rolls. I am confident that the sales figure of Star or NST will improve significantly by publishing these fascinating news. These news are of course of interest to the Malaysian public. Firstly, they are intriguing. Secondly, they are contained in our official records. They are reliable of course.

I do not wish to deprive you of the chance to read these fantastic news simply because our main stream newspapers are somewhat ignorant. Please click here to access some of the news that i can consider them as intriguing as recent Hollywood suspense movies.
