KUALA LUMPUR: Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, who has temporarily taken over the Education Ministry portfolio, says he is not bothered about the colour of shoes worn to school.
The Prime Minister said that the briefing he was given by Education Ministry officials on Thursday (Jan 16) had left him "a little confused".
"I had a long briefing. I am still digesting the items that they had briefed me and I am still a little bit confused because of so many facts given. I am studying them.
"One thing I have decided is that you can wear brown shoes, black shoes, grey shoes, white shoes – any shoes will do," said Dr Mahathir on Friday (Jan 17).
Former education minister Dr Maszlee Malik had introduced the controversial black-shoe policy.
