Despite being hailed heaps of praises by PAP Ministers, there is hardly any turnout to attend SR Nathan’s funeral today (Aug 25). Although an estimated 3 kilometre of crowd barrier were set up, the attendance is worse than luke-warm.
Children as young as 4 years old from Dunman Road’s kindergarten Zee Junior were forced to witnessed the procession by their pro-PAP teachers.
According to state media Straits Times, there were only about 100 people queuing at 11.12am. No foreign delegates is present.
