Universiti Malaysia Sabah student Veveonah Mosibin, whose video of her climbing a tree to gain internet access went viral last June, was honoured to have received a dinner invitation with Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin on Saturday night.

Describing Muhyiddin as humble and awesome, Veveonah via her post on Instagram, said the invitation was a gesture of appreciation from the prime minister.

”Stay awesome!!!! It was such an honor for me and my parents to be invited to have dinner with Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, 8th Prime Minister of Malaysia. He is such a humble and amazing person. Thank you so much, Tan Sri,” her posting read.

On Sept 3, Deputy Minister of Communications and Multimedia Datuk Zahidi Zainul Abidin’s response to a supplementary question in the Dewan Negara on Veveonah, who had to climb a tree to gain stronger internet connection in the interior of Sabah, sparked controversy.
