In a Facebook post published today (25 Aug), Dr Chee wrote: “I want to thank all of you for your condolences and kind wishes during this time of the demise of my mother. In return, I wish all of you the best in health. Take care, everyone.”

Dr Chee’s mother was a great source of support in his many years in politics. His mother even came to his rally during the 2015 general election – the first election the veteran opposition politician was allowed to contest in over a decade, after he was made bankrupt.

Dr Chee also received his mother on stage when she visited his rally during the 2016 by-election at Bukit Batok SMC.
