Former president Mahinda Rajapaksa on Tuesday, May 10, attended an event held at the Bandaranaike Memorial International Conference Hall to celebrate International Nurses Day.

The Public Service United Nurses Union, chaired by Venerable Muruttettuwe Ananda Thero, organised the event. Following the event, former president Mahinda Rajapaksa expressed views to the media.

When questions were raised as to why the former president is going to Uganda, he noted that he was invited by the President to attend his swearing in ceremony.

Further questions were raised about his opinion on the Panama Papers. In reply, he stated that none of the Rajapaksas are in it.
Another question was raised on the son of the former president, Namal Rajapaksa – whether he does not want to go to Uganda.

In reply, Namal Rajapaksa noted that he has no plan on leaving since his father was going. He also added, with a smile, that he has other things to attend to, such as work in the village and work in Colombo. He stated that if tells his father, he too will ask whether he can accompany him.
