    Next is the admittance to prison hospital and then the bail-out. After that, no-one remembers this case again. Welcome to bananaland!

    We do a background check even before recruiting a person to clean the garden of our house.... How was he selected as the chairman of timber cooperation with such a history. Are the leaders are blind?

    Everyone who get elected or selected to sit in a higher seat has a huge greed, that's to loot and show an ego.... we can always start from the humble beginning of Gelman and Insurance collector!!! We all know they are Thieves, regardless of their pomp and pageant! Balloth ekkala Bah, they like to go around lifting their legs!!!

    Tug-of-war between the PM and Pres is reaching a healthy height. If they jail each other's criminal henchman, the country will be cleaned up of corruption.

    Sujeewa Wednesday, 16 May 2018 05:48 PM

    Nuwan, you are absolutely correct. That fight might clean the society by exposing all the rogues in the Jaraapalanaya clan!

    Haramanis Wednesday, 16 May 2018 05:15 PM

    Looks like PM and Ravi are behind a campaign to tar and feather the Prez !!!. We are all in for an interesting time while the Country goes to the dogs....
