Prime Minister Anwar visits a sick old friend in Ipoh

IPOH: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim (Picture) today visited his former Malay College Kuala Kangsar (MCKK) schoolmate who has fallen ill at his home in Desa Seri Ampang here.

He arrived at the home of Ahmad Fawzi Shafii, 75, who suffers from chronic schizophrenia, at around 2pm, bringing gifts for his old friend.

Ahmad Fawzi, who has been bedridden for two months, was also Anwar’s roommate when they studied at Universiti Malaya (UM).

Anwar was seen chatting and joking with Ahmad Fawzi while reminiscing about their time together for about 20 minutes before leaving to officiate at the opening of the Tambun Fire and Rescue Station.

Meanwhile, Ahmad Fawzi’s younger brother Jama’iyah Shafii, 62, said Ahmad Fawzi was overcome with emotion after being told his old friend had been named the country’s prime minister.

“His memory is failing but he still remembers old friends including Anwar Ibrahim and cried when he was told by the MCKK alumni that he (Anwar) was going to visit him,” he added.

Ahmad Fawzi, who used to work in a bank, was diagnosed with the disease more than 50 years ago and is being cared for by Jama’iyah. -Bernama Prime Minister Anwar visits a sick old friend in Ipoh
