Singapore's Lee wants home demolished

In excerpts from a new book launched on Friday, Lee said he had already instructed the government to destroy the British colonial-era bungalow situated off the premier Orchard Road shopping belt after his death.

“I’ve told the Cabinet, when I’m dead, demolish it,” the 87-year-old Lee, who now advises his son Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, said in remarks published by the daily Straits Times. “I’ve seen other houses, Nehru’s, Shakespeare’s. They become a shambles after a while,” he said.

The newspaper’s parent company Singapore Press Holdings is publishing the book “Lee Kuan Yew: Hard Truths to Keep Singapore Going”.
