Prime Minister Hun Sen request citizens to not hit the ox cart when annoyed by the ox, nor hate Hun Sen when annoyed by the village chiefs. It is unreasonable, he said, addressing to more than 17,000 workers from 13 factories in Takeo province, approximately 70km southwest of Phnom Penh.
“It is already difficult to lead a family, whereas for myself, I lead millions of people. Nothing is perfect. Merits and faults in my leadership shall be weighted and considered to see which one is dominant,” stated the premier.
Prime Minister Hun Sen admitted that a small number of his people committed mistakes upon people. He reminded the arrest and imprisonment of former Takeo Governor Lay Vannak related to a murder case in Takeo on 1 April 2018.
