KUCHING – SUPP President Dr George Chan is a very happy man these days. He can now confirmed that he has married Lorna Enan Muloon, his companion for the past few years.
At a press conference here early this week, the deputy chief minister was in a jovial mood as reporters sidetracked to ask about his private life.
Asked that with a new wife, could there be the sound of tiny pattering feet, Chan replied, “Ya, ya, ya.” Then, putting on a stern face, he said, “Why you people are so interested in my personal life?”
When told that everyone wanted to rejoice with him, the 74-year-old veteran politician flashed a big smile, adding happily “everything is possible, hahaha” to the question of having babies with his new wife.
Chan was formerly married to Judith with whom he has three daughters. One of their daughters, Anisa Hamidah Abdullah, is married to Chief Minister Taib Mahmud’s second son, Sulaiman.
Lorna is the adopted daughter of the late Joseph Balan Seling, a former state minister. She is from the Kelabit community.
Chan married Lorna in a private ceremony about a year ago. The happy couple have been attending public functions together of late. – Sarawak Update
