    Singapore's Lee fighting nerve disease: daughter



    Singapore's founding leader Lee Kuan Yew is fighting a neurological disease that is making it difficult for him to walk steadily, his daughter revealed.

    Lee, who turned 88 in September, suffers from sensory peripheral neuropathy, his physician daughter Lee Wei Ling, director of the National Neuroscience Institute of Singapore, wrote in her weekly Sunday Times newspaper column.

    "In my father's case, sensory peripheral neuropathy has caused the conduction of sensation from his legs to his spinal cord to be impaired. This makes his walking unsteady, as many Singaporeans have already noticed," she wrote.

    The column, which deals with a wide range of issues, is closely followed for glimpses into the private life of Singapore's most influential family.


    Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong is the columnist's elder brother.

    Lee Kuan Yew retired from the cabinet after general elections in May but continues to travel overseas and remains a member of parliament, a post he has held since 1955. He served as prime minister from 1959 to 1990.

    "His day-to-day condition now fluctuates. On some days he is fairly steady and on other days his balance is poor. The problem is limited to the sensory nerves outside his central nervous system," his daughter wrote.

    "His brain and muscles are working normally. But being deprived of sensation from his legs means he finds it a challenge to balance. Thus his unsteady walk," she said.

    The patriarch, however, is determined to fight the disease and now practises walking on a treadmill at home three times a day without fail.

    "I have no doubt my father will fight this disease for as long as he thinks he can contribute to Singapore," his daughter said.

    "I think with medication and simple precaution, he can continue to be of service to his country and the world."

    That is why it is best he is infirm and in a wheelchair. Traveling around the world dispensing "advice" left, right and centre only gives us bad publicity.

    Yah, our neighbours are pre-occupied with their own problems i.e. floods, recession, revolutions,...

    LKY is "our" problem Looks like he's finally been silenced by old age.

    Surprising piece of good news... If thats indeed the case, then Old sick Harry should just stay at home to recuperate instead of exerting himself unneccessarily taking long flights from one end of the world to another end to impart his pearly wisdoms... Long haul flights are not good man for a sick frail old chap like him... Tax payers money will also be saved if he just stay at home..

    Its The Beginning Of The End For Harry Old Boy...

    Since he is sick etc, he should quit and move on. Why is he still waiting tax payers money on his medical treatments? Since he is soo rich he should pay for it himself.

    Everytime a friend or any Singaporean I come across who come seek medical service in Thailand I curse 2 morherfuckers, LKY and KBW. After what we had put into for the country this is what we get in return. I don't mind if our country is poor but we are one of the richest countries in this fucking world!

    Paranoid delusions of grandeur. And that is the disease that actually inflicts him.

    Please lah, disagree with his policies - that is fine.

    But lets not rejoice on issues with health, family misfortune for anyone. Perhaps medical service should use LKY and refocus on such maladies faced by everyday elder Singaporeans.

    Just as LKY is getting older and now faced with health issues, lets not forget the Singaporeans from his generation and their health issues and worries over a dignified retirement. With that XXXX Billions parked overseas, we should use some of that to help that pioneer generation.
