A book titled “New Blood among Successors”, which is about Prime Minister Hun Sen’s three sons, was launched by its author in the capital today.
The 400-page book written by Chhay Sophal provides details about Hun Manet, Hun Manith and Hun Many, and describes their social, political and humanitarian activities, both in Cambodia and internationally, to help the country. It also mentions their two sisters Hun Mana and Hun Mali.
Mr Sophal said the book does not only focus on Mr Hun Sen’s three sons, but also on children of other elites who could possibly succeed him as Prime Minister.
He said he personally interviewed Mr Manet, Mr Manith and Mr Many and found they have the potential to lead the country.
“For me, through my interviews, I find that all three of them have the potential to become Prime Minister,” Mr Sophal said. “To be Prime Minister they have to go through many process such as gaining the trust of the ruling party and also support from the public.”
“In this book, I want to show the young generation that even if they are sons of a country’s leader they must work to help society,” he added.
Gen Manet is the oldest son born on October, 20, 1977, in Kompong Cham province’s Memot district. He graduated from the US Military Academy at West Point. He received a bachelor’s degree in Economics. Now Gen Manet is RCAF’s army commander.
