Hambantota Mayor Eraj Feranado today claimed it was a toy pistol that he carried when he rushed to the scene to protect the UNP MPs who were being attacked by some villagers and staff of the Hambantota Harbour.
“I went to the scene on receiving a call from UNP MP Nalin Jayamaha asking me to go there. It was I, who protected the UNP MPs from the angry crowd and helped them to leave unharmed,” Mr. Fernando claimed.
His Lordship, The Mayor of Hambantota, should show us his toy gun and prove that he is honest and worthy to hold this position. His phone records showing a call from the Honourable Namal Rajapakse MP should also be produced.

A toy gun and a toy port and a toy airport but regrettably not toy debts. Not all is well in Toytown.
Kaduthuda Saturday, 19 April 2014 07:24 AM
It a was just a toy gun for him. Because he usually uses bigger ones.

How many versions does this Idiot of a Mayor have?????? He did not carry a gun? He was only carrying a toy pistol? He went their on the request of Namal? He went as requested by UNP MP? It was he who protected UNP MPs??? Next time he may claim that it was his double who was with a pistol or that he was sleep walking. God save this country. via DM iPad app

Even if it was a toy pistol, does't it mean you are indirectly promoting gun culture?
BuffaloaCitizen Friday, 18 April 2014 11:07 AM
It is similar to those other explanations of "zero causality", 'humanitarian operation to save the people of the north".

Now the Mayor is following either the steps of Professor Mereyn or Cunning Duminda. Yet, it is for the Police to investigate.
