    He should retire now. He has done his part for our country.

    If he has such security threats he must stay home leaving aside his greed for power.

    Very suitable comment. Who is the fat thief. Yes, no doubt the old defeated king.

    He only developed his family and not the country. Looting was his profession.

    Former Kings privileges should be removed as he has come into politics again.

    There are so many ill-informed people like Sampath. I pity him.

    MR must be prime Minister. He was the person who developed the country.

    Jamis Friday, 17 July 2015 06:05 PM

    Agreed. Did the entire country allow MR dictate terms and run a mafia type politics?

    Sikuru Friday, 17 July 2015 06:07 PM
