KOTA KINABALU: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has clarified that the viral photo showing Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Seri Panglima Haji Mohd Shafie Haji Apdal handing out money to public during the Kimanis by-election, was actually recorded on January 3 in Sandakan.

MACC in a statement stated that, the event on January 3 in Sandakan was a ground-breaking ceremony for the new Sandakan Airport and not the Kimanis by-election, as claimed in the photos that went viral in social media.

MACC also found that the event was a charity program for the public after Friday prayers at the Masjid Datuk Pangeran Galpam Sandakan that was officiated by the Chief Minister.
