MERDEKA! MERDEKA! MERDEKA!
It has been 52 years since the day Tunku Abdul Rahman announced the independence of Malaya from the British on 31st August 1957 at Stadium Merdeka. This year's motto is '1 Malaysia, Rakyat Didahulukan, Pencapaian Diutamakan', which means 'people first, performance now'. This motto is always lauded by our current Prime Minister, Dato' Seri Najib Tun Razak.
