Some joker went on Wikipedia earlier today and decided to have some fun – by editing the highest rank of the Singapore Armed Forces to “SMRT CEO”.
The entry has since been edited to remove the SMRT bit, but we can see why someone would think so.
SMRT CEO Desmond Kuek, who’s stepping down on 1 August this year, as Chief of Army from 2003 to 2007, moving up to serve as Chief of Defence Force from 2007 to 2010.
Then, after a brief stint in the civil service, he was appointed SMRT CEO in 2012.
Incoming SMRT CEO Neo Kian Hong took over from Kuek as Chief of Army in 2007, then took over from Kuek again as Chief of Defence in 2010, serving till 2013.
And after a brief stint in the civil service, he’s now going to take over from Kuek come August as SMRT CEO.
Will we see current Chief of Defence Force (and former Chief of Army), Lt-Gen Perry Lim, taking over SMRT too, 5 years from now?
