The son, Ben Goi, of billionaire, Sam Goi, died from a heart attack at the age of 43 on 3 February 2019. The 151 media reported many PAP ministers visiting the wake, held at Mr Goi's house in Bukit Timah. The ministers and ex ministers seen there include Josephine Teo, Heng Swee Keat, Vivian Balakrishnan, Masagos Zulkifli, Teo Ser Luck and George Yeo.
While we mourn for his death, we are also questioning why our PAP ministers did not visit Aloysius Pang's funeral. Especially our prime minister who was at Wisma Geylang Serai celebrating the launch of Singapore Bicentennial, which was just down the road from the funeral.
Aloysius Pang died due to a training accident while on reservist. He was doing a service for the nation yet our ministers could only provide lip service by sending their condolences through Facebook and other social media. Why did they not make an effort to visit a Singaporean son who died while in service for our country? Is a billionaire's son more important than a Singaporean son?
For those who do not know, according to Forbes, Sam Goi is ranked 14th richest person in Singapore with a net worth of US$1.8 Billion. He has also been a long time member of PAP. He received the Long Service Award from PAP in 2015.
Were our ministers too busy to attend the funeral of a Singapore son?
