UPDATE: Since this video’s initial upload there has been a development in this story. Hours ago Ma was seen again, appearing on a video call promising rural teachers that they would “meet each other again” after the pandemic. At the moment it’s not completely clear where Ma (wearing a navy jumper) was located, but it certainly seems that he’s set to come out of hiding in the relatively near future. Whether he’ll return to his influential position after the pandemic or not is still yet to be seen – Jack
