Despite astrologer Sumanadasa Abeygunawardena predicting that former President Mahinda Rajapaksa will win the January 8 election, it was Opposition Presidential Candidate Maithripala Sirisena, who won the presidency at Thursday’s election.
Mr. Sumanadasa said January 8 was a lucky day for former President Rajapaksa.
The astrologer was furious when Daily Mirror contacted him for his comments about his wrong prediction.
“Pissu nathuwa innna nona. Ohela apita madath gahala thawa kathakaranna enawa,” (Madam are you crazy to speak to me after slinging mud at us.)
NDTV, the premier Indian News Network said yesterday the election would be, “an ultimate test of Mr. Sumanadasa’s predictive skills.” (Chathushika Wijeyesinghe)

I think the prediction is good as it turned out for MR family and the whole country. If his plans worked out to become a dictator the country will be in bad shape. So the day is good for him to leave in a way with out bad events and incidents. We have to thank those uphold the rule of law for this. What every crime any one committed let it be investigated and properly punished or pardoned.

I think M3 should appoint this guy to be the astrologer and do exact opposite to what he says..!!
Rohana Saturday, 10 January 2015 03:20 PM
It is not the uneducated astrologers who should be blamed. It is those guilty conscious politicians, who do not have the self confidence to face the reality, should be ridiculed. The less they are self confident the more they become hell bent on seeking help from supernatural and mystic powers as well as witch craft..It is unbelievable that a person of the calibre of the ex-president believes the utter rubbish said by those so called astrologers.As the present leader of the JVP has aptly said our former president is still living in the 15th century.

Astrology is not a science which can predict the futures 100% accurately. It so happens sometimes the calculations are not correct then expected grahayas changes does not take place and the consequences are drastic. Probably his calculations were incorrect. Give the man a break. People will think twice before they go to him for a consultation.
