MPs apologise for sexist remarks
KUALA LUMPUR MPs Datuk Mohd Said Yusof (Jasin – BN) and Datuk Bung Mokhtar Radin (Kinabatangan – BN) have apologised to all Malaysian women for making the now infamous bocor remarks in Parliament last week.
The remarks caused a nationwide furore, leading various women’s groups to protest against the two MPs outside the Women, Family and Community Development Ministry on Tuesday.
"I am very sorry. I apologise to all women. It was a slip of the tongue, said in the heat of the moment," said Mohd Said, adding, "I respect all women and the liberation of women."
In Kota Kinabalu, Bung Mokhtar also expressed his apology to all women for his "unintended remarks."
"It was not my intention to hurt any woman.
"I said it in the heat of an argument with DAP members, who were calling me binatang (animal) and accusing the Barisan Nasional of corruption.
"I strongly feel that women's feelings should be respected," he told The Star.
Both MPs got into hot soup when they remarked, "mana bocor? Batu Gajah pun bocor setiap bulan" (Where is the leak, Batu Gajah [MP Fong Po Kuan] also leaks every month) during a heated argument last week over a leaked ceiling.
