The Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, in a disgraceful spectacle of cowardice in the face of an insurgent attack, bolted from the Colombo Fortress deserting his Forces and abandoning his responsibility to the Country.
In 2019, Nandasena Rajapakse was elected President of Sri Lanka with the votes of a near 7 million people who delegated their Executive Sovereign Power, for a period of 5 years, to a man who they believed, would strive to do what he had promised to do in his election Manifesto and campaign.
On taking office, Nandasena, by virtue of Article 4b of the Constitution, assumed the role of Commander-in- Chief of the Sri Lanka Army, the Navy and the Air Force and with it the responsibility for the security of the Country and her people.
An American woman, Ayoma Rajapakse, stood beside Sri Lanka’s leading Public Servant at the oath-taking ceremony.
Two years thereon, the country was ablaze and in dire peril with a full-blown American – backed insurgency raging inside the Galle-Face square, challenging and defying the government’s edict; anarchism prevailed and the subversives, were successful in unseating undemocratically, on the 09th of May ‘22, the democratically selected Prime Minister, Mahinda Rajapakse.
