Former Colombo Mayor, Uvais Mohamed Imthiaz has returned to his previous profession of driving three wheelers. Imthiaz told Daily Mirror online that he does odd jobs during the day and drives the three-wheeler at night.

The former mayor said he no longer has a house or an income. Special Commissioner to the Colombo Municipal Council, Omar Kamil has requested the former mayor to vacate the official residence, but Imthiaz has refused to vacate the house saying he has no other house to go to.

“I will not vacate the house until the President tells me to do so. But if the authorities vacate the house, I will set up a camp outside the residence and stay there. The Chief minister and the Governor have given me permission to stay in this house,” Imthiaz said.

He also said that he intends to contest at the next Colombo Municipal Council election. (Daily Mirror online)

    Find the guy a house. Our present politicians are so used to leading a luxurious life that they will never be able to get back to their old jobs. In this context., hats off to Uvais.

    Mohamed need's bit of education to teach him how the system works. I really don't know how and who appointed him as a mayor with no educational background. He should accpet the fact that he is just a citizen of the country.Only thing he know is a riding a 3 wheeler. That's why today the country is running on 3 wheels instead or 4 wheels.

    Disgrace indeed !!! Colombo is crying of its plight with people like this as Mayor or the first citizen and the Central Government Provincial and other MPS in Colombo just gobble the money of the tax payer.

    US President Jimmy Carter went back to Peanut Farming after expiry of his term. Why not CMC Mayor? After all his Photograph must be hanging there!!

    I think people do not know that Colombo MC was dissolved due to some corruption charges against him and other 52 councillors. He is talking like an innocent person to get the sympathy.

    What a shining example of democracy!! We should all strive to be more like this guy...

    Charlie Sunday, 29 August 2010 03:05 PM

    How come? Usually politicians, when get in with shanty houses and come out with a palaces.

    jay Sunday, 29 August 2010 03:15 PM

    thanks to UNP's wrong political game (as always) he became a mayor. poor guy, most importantly he didnt steal public money it seems. otherwise he will not drive t'wheels again.

    This is Sri lnaka & not america, to run on 4 wheelers, Hats off to Uvais.

    Why should this chap be treated differently to any other citizen of Colombo?

    As far as I'm concerned, he is illegally squatting on Government property, and should be dealt with the same way all other squatters and illegal constructions in Colombo are being dealt with by the UDA.

    Nimal Monday, 30 August 2010 06:42 AM

    It's the tipex that helped him become the mayor. Start selling tipex.
