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)
