 Malaysia Today: News & Commentaries: Nuggets of wisdom from Hussein
What is instructive for Malaysian politics today in studying the legacy of Tun Hussein Onn, Datuk Onn Ja’afar and Datuk Ja’afar Mohamed is the public virtue they embodied and the values, principles and personal sacrifices for public service that they represented.
What came across was not just a confirmation of his reputation as a man of principles and values, but a man with the strength of his convictions and a leader so acutely aware of the corruption of power and the grave responsibility of leadership and public office.
Some lessons from the philosophy and wisdom of Hussein on political leadership, public virtue and public office which escaped public attention in the 1970s might be instructive for all of us today.

Hussein fell out with Nasser when he opposed many of the president's policies, especially his heavy-handed style of government and favouritism, which he blamed for Egypt's defeat in the 1967 war with Israel.
In the aftermath of this crushing defeat, Hussein faced internal rebellions by both Iraq's Shi`ites and Kurds, but he managed to suppress their uprisings and maintain his grip on power until a U.S.-U.K. invasion ended his regime in April 2003.
