KUALA LUMPUR: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak today visited Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim at Kuala Lumpur Hospital (HKL).

Najib, on his Twitter and Facebook accounts, shared a photo of him and his wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor sharing a light moment with the former opposition leader and his wife Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail.

“I visited Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim at HKL today.

“He had undergone surgery a few days ago. May he recover soon,” he wrote in the caption.

This drew a response from Anwar’s son Muhammad Ihsan, who expressed gratitude for Najib’s visit.

“On behalf of my family, I extend our gratitude to the Government of Malaysia for the courtesy visit by Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor to HKL.

“The prime minister and his wife met with our father... who is now recuperating under HKL’s care after an operation on his right shoulder joint to heal his shoulder’s injury,” he said in a statement today.

It was reported on Nov 7 that Anwar, 70, would undergo surgery on his right shoulder at HKL on Nov 12.

His family had told a press conference that he had been suffering from continuous pain from the said area, which was aggravated after a road accident on Sept 22.

He was involved in the accident at Saujana Utama, Sungai Buloh en route to the Sungai Buloh prison, after being hospitalised for four days at HKL.
