Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is baffled at how people can be influenced by a person who is facing a trial for cheating and stealing money.

In a reference believed to be of the former prime minister, Dr Mahathir said people had resorted to "kissing the hand of a thief" as the Pakatan Harapan government did not know how to tell its "stories" well.

Dr Mahathir spoke to reporters after visiting the 5G Demonstration Project at the Langkawi District and Land Office on Monday.
