As always, Dr. Mahathir former Political Secretary, Matthias Chang today has declared that he has started a hunger strike to show all Malaysians that UMNO. leaders led by Najib were "cowards and untrustworthy". This is not the first time Chang has gone on a hunger strike, in fact he tried this same tactic in 2010. He had embarked on a hunger strike for only 8 days until a plea from former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad for him to stop.
However, this hunger strike he did was never proven to be "the real deal" and it could all only be some publicity stunt.
