TWO pro-Umno newspapers, Utusan Malaysia and Berita Harian, have gone to town splashing the lifestyle of top government critic Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s granddaughter on their front pages.
Under the headline “Meera Alyana Mukriz’s celebrity lifestyle”, Utusan’s Sunday edition, Mingguan Malaysia said that Meera Alyana Mukhriz lived a celebrity’s lifestyle by wearing designer clothes and spent time travelling around the world on a luxury yacht.
The paper said the article was based on a Facebook posting by a user called “Sudahlah Mahathir”.
Utusan said Meera’s lavish lifestyle had caught the attention of social media users. The Umno-owned newspaper said Meera, better known as Ally, travelled around the world in a boat named after her. Utusan claimed the boat was given to her by her father, Bersatu deputy president Mukhriz Mahathir.
“Her (Meera) life is the envy of many women in the country. This proves that former prime minister Dr Mahathir’s granddaughter is only human and is unable to resist the allures of a princess’ and celebrity lifestyle,” said Utusan.
