Tributes pour in

If Mr Lee Kuan Yew was still alive, he would turn 92 on this day (16 Sep).

He passed away on 23 March this year.

Half a year has passed since his demise, but Singaporeans certainly have not forgotten him. We’ll always remember the man for his dedication to Singapore and his steadfastness in love.

Politicians also took to Facebook to pay tribute to Mr Lee:
