Jasin Wanita Umno chief marries man more than 30 years younger

MELAKA: When talking about marrying a man who is over 30 years her junior, Jasin Wanita Umno chief Datuk Zaleha Bujang says that it is love at first sight.

"We are probably made for each other and our love bloomed since we met on the first day," said the mother of three when contacted on Sunday (Sept 13).

The 62-year-old Zaleha solemnised her marriage to a 28-year-old businessman who only wanted to be known as Ashraf on Friday (Sept 11) in Jasin.

She lost her first husband six years ago when he passed away after an illness.

Zaleha said her three children had initially opposed her marriage

"I told them, I was feeling lonely and they finally agreed that I should remarry," she said.

When asked whether she is planning to have a baby, Zaleha replied that "I don't think, I am able to conceive at my age".

However, she plans to adopt another child to commemorate her marriage with Ashraf.

"Our wish is to have the patter of little feet running around our house. We are looking forward to a blissful married life," she added.
