This local politico elected to a major council in the upcountry from the ‘bud’ party had cherished high expectations to wear the mayoral robe and he had used his influence to get a well-refurbished office ready in advance.


On being informed, that the new office was ready for occupation, the hopeful had quietly inspected it and expressed his satisfaction too.
