Sakura’s coffin ‘gift’ to Chong Eng put on hold
By JOSEPHINE JALLEH
GEORGE TOWN: Heavy rain prevented former DAP grassroots leader Teh Hock Yong from making good his pledge to send his gift – a coffin – to the house of national Wanita DAP chief Chong Eng.
The former division chief from Nibong Tebal, better known as Sakura Teh, had brought the metre-long coffin to the state DAP convention at Dewan Tunku on Sunday but was not allowed in.
He said then that he would send the coffin to the Chong Eng’s house in Bukit Mertajam later.
“There was a change of plans due to the heavy rain on Sunday night. But I’m ready to send it to her house if she challenges me again.
“However, I have been advised by friends and some DAP members not to send the coffin. So, I might reconsider it.
“She challenged me by saying I should send the coffin if I were an anak jantan (real man). The coffin is in Bukit Mertajam now,” he said, adding that he bought the coffin for RM300 in Nibong Tebal.
Teh claimed that Chong Eng had alleged he was the mastermind behind a plot to overthrow the state leadership.
“Sending a coffin to her house is not wrong in the eyes of the law. It is only a gift from me. If she doesn’t like it, she can throw it away,” said Sakura, who earned the nickname Sakura in 1981 because his friends thought he looked Japanese.
Chong Eng, meanwhile, denied calling Teh a mastermind and said he had misread newspaper reports.
“I also did not challenge him to send the coffin. Either people are using him or he is just making things up.
“I have informed the police about the matter and they have sent policemen to my home just in case anything happens,” she said.
