OXYMORON defines oxymoron as a figure of speech by which a locution produces incongrous, seemingly self-contradictory effect, as in "cruel kindness" or 'to make haste slowly" . 

thestar online today reported 

"The Prime Minister held his marathon meeting with 135 Barisan Nasional MPs on Saturday, where he was given briefings and viewpoints by the elected representatives on the situation in their constituencies.
Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak had earlier indicated that he wanted to know first-hand the situation on the ground and issue directives to them to prepare the coalition for the next general election."

came across this [here] 

"Prime Minister's wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor will be on a three-nation visit with the first stop Saudi Arabia for three days from tomorrow.
Rosmah, accompanied by members of the Welfare Association of Wives of Ministers and Deputy Ministers (Bakti) as well as Senior Officials from the Prime Minister’s Department, will be visiting Oman for four days from January 16 before proceeding to Bangladesh for a three-day visit from January 19, said a statement issued by the Foreign Ministry here today.
In Saudi Arabia, Rosmah is scheduled to deliver a keynote address at the 1st International Conference of Total Quality Management (TQM) in K-12 Education in Riyadh.
She will also be witnessing the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between Permata Insan Academy, Islamic Science University of Malaysia (USIM) and the King Abdulaziz and his Companions Foundation for Giftedness and Creativity (Mawhiba).
While in Oman, Rosmah will be meeting its Deputy Prime Minister for the Council of Ministers Sayyid Fahad Bin Mahmood Al-Said, and the Minister of Social Development Dr Sharifa Bint Khalfan Al Yahya"


there's nothing contradictory

just that this old eyes missed ONE four letter word in the second news 

caused me to think that there was a case of wrong pronoun [which happens a lot with my students - mother tongue interference ... third person pronoun 'dia/beliau' is used for both genders]

hehehe ...
