Economic Development Minister and brother of President Mahinda Rajapakse, Basil Rajapakse was in for a shock today when a chimpanzee took a swipe at his face while he tried to shake it’s hand while touring the Dehiwala Zoo.

Rajapakse, who shook the chimpanzee’s hand as soon as the animal was brought to him by the zoo employees had to duck when the seemingly quiet chimpanzee all of a sudden took a swipe at the Minister’s face.

However, in all good humour, Rajapakse had a good laugh while the animal was immediately taken away. (Daily Mirror online)

    Tuesday, 27 April 2010 08:59 PM

    Even the animal world is disgusted ...

    Tuesday, 27 April 2010 09:03 PM

    The Chimp's next destination will be either the 4th floor or Navy HQ.

    Tuesday, 27 April 2010 10:07 PM

    This monkey should be in the parliament, with the 'others.'

    Tuesday, 27 April 2010 10:47 PM

    With more monkeys like this Sri Lanka might have a better chance of survival. Change the Constitution immediately and give all monkeys the right to vote.

    Tuesday, 27 April 2010 11:40 PM

    You are a brave animal. Good work chimp. Go and hide with your family.

    Tuesday, 27 April 2010 01:20 PM

    This chimpanzee will be sent to Navy Head Quarters to stay with General Fonseka..... Don't try to play with Rajapaksha Family.

    Tuesday, 27 April 2010 01:23 PM

    At least the Chimp is aware of the man than the 400,000 plus gampaha disct. plonkers.

    Tuesday, 27 April 2010 01:24 PM

    That was a UNP Chimpanzee.

    Tuesday, 27 April 2010 01:25 PM

    Basil, don't mess around with Monkey business!! hehe (that was just for fun. I'm a fan of you sir. Keep up the good development work)

    Tuesday, 27 April 2010 01:25 PM

    Shows even monkeys are more intelligent than some of our voters as they can recognize fake monkey dances.

    Tuesday, 27 April 2010 01:26 PM

    CID to question the monkey and all his relatives including the son-in-law of the monkey.

    Wednesday, 28 April 2010 12:58 AM

    At least a Monkey Did it !.

    Tuesday, 27 April 2010 01:30 PM

    Tuesday, 27 April 2010 01:51 PM

    Imtiaz comment is good i also agree with you.

    Tuesday, 27 April 2010 01:52 PM

    An anti-government chimp probably from Norway.

    Tuesday, 27 April 2010 01:54 PM

    Tiger failed a task. Now monkey has taken over...

    Wednesday, 28 April 2010 02:42 AM

    All the Zoo Employees will be interrogated for possibilities of training the Chimp to do that.

    Tuesday, 27 April 2010 01:56 PM

    As usual shall we conclude that western countries are behind this act?

    Tuesday, 27 April 2010 02:09 PM

    wow, smart animal, at least it touched Basil , while UNPers and JVPers are happen to be like dust being stepped on by Basil

    Tuesday, 27 April 2010 02:11 PM

    Ha ha... the chimp has taken one for the team! Well executed by the SF's top secret 'chimp brigade'

    Tuesday, 27 April 2010 02:18 PM

    I wonder whether a high level commission will be appointed to investigate and file conspiracy charges against this monkey.

    Tuesday, 27 April 2010 02:27 PM

    Animal Instincts are the sharpest!

    Tuesday, 27 April 2010 02:34 PM

    You got it, a real one

    Wednesday, 28 April 2010 03:18 AM

    Chimp is a Cousin of SF!! that is for sure!

    Tuesday, 27 April 2010 02:47 PM

    Good work Chimp. Keep it up.

    Tuesday, 27 April 2010 02:48 PM

    I won't be surprised if the CID arrests the monkey for trying to overthrow the govt !!

    Wednesday, 28 April 2010 08:58 AM

    Zoo authorities should market this story and make money Come and see the UNP monkey, probably will have more fans than RW.

    Tuesday, 27 April 2010 02:56 PM

    LOL

    Tuesday, 27 April 2010 02:57 PM

    Tuesday, 27 April 2010 03:33 PM

    Tuesday, 27 April 2010 03:34 PM

    The monkey's grand mother will be prosecuted for harbouring him

    Tuesday, 27 April 2010 04:21 PM

    This animal is a traitor. He should be handed over to CID for further investigation. His relatives(other. chimps) should be questioned for any involvement with western world

    Tuesday, 27 April 2010 05:09 PM

    The monkey keeper has to be arrested for the alleged attack? ... Come-on CID, start investigations.

    Tuesday, 27 April 2010 05:18 PM

    Send the military-police to arrest the monkey?

    Wednesday, 28 April 2010 05:47 AM

    This Chimp must be a reborn Tamil Tiger who still hates Rajapakses. TIGER REBORN CHIMP!
