A nine-year-old girl’s letter to Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim has captured the hearts of many on the internet over the weekend.
Referring to the Prime Minister as ‘Uncle Anwar’, the girl, named Maryam vented out her frustration about her school toilets and hoped that he would visit her school and check on the toilet’s condition.
“I want to tell you about my school’s bathroom. As much as I appreciate your task to make school toilets clean, I don’t think my school’s toilets are clean.
“In the first stall of the toilet is a squat toilet. YES, a squat toilet. Beside it is a hole that looks like a spider can crawl out at any second.
“The rest of the stalls are the same. So please visit my school and take a look at the toilet,” the letter reads.
Anwar shared the letter on his Facebook page, assuring that appropriate action would be taken.
“Thank you, Maryam. I will try to thoroughly and quickly solve this problem for the well-being of the children at school,” the posting said.
