Nga Kor Ming is well-known as a fiery speaker with a flair for languages a talent for plays on words. He was a renowned debater during his time as a student at Universiti Malaya, where he received his LLB, winning many awards. He is now one of the DAP’s most prominent speakers.
Nga Kor Ming comes from an old Ayer Tawar Methodist family and was christened David by the late Rev. Koh Gie Bing. He is married to another Ayer Tawarean and they have one child. Before his appointment to the Perak executive council, he practised as a lawyer in Ayer Tawar and also in Ipoh, Perak.
I chanced upon once of Nga Kor Ming’s rally speeches on youtube and was captivated immediately by his fiery, crowd arousing oratory skills. I don’t recall any politicians in Singapore who possess such a raw talent. It is amazing how a person, armed with just his mouth and a microphone can capture so many people’s attention in the span of an hour or so.
Even if you are not in the know of Malaysian politics like yours truly, I am quite certain that after watching just one of Nga Kor Ming’s videos, you will be compelled to find out more about him or dig out his other videos to view as they are quite arresting, and strangely, entertaining.
