Bringing Tugu Negara Back To Life

When our Tugu Negara was bombed by the Communist in 1975, the government enlisted the help of an Australian sculptor, Christopher Carney to help restore it back to its original state. Christopher was a lecturer at UiTM then, and he decided to get three of his students - Abdul Mansoor Ibrahim, Abdul Mufti Jantan and Zolkeply Maulana - to help him out. They worked on the project for a year and managed to restore the monument successfully. Soon after that, they parted ways. 46 years later, they decided to finally reunite to reflect on the scale of their achievements, as well as reminisce about their contributions to Malaysia’s iconic monument. They dropped by our studio to share their stories, as well as their role in preserving a treasured national symbol.
