President Mahinda Rajapaksa visited the Nairobi Buddhist Viharaya, located in a suburb of Kenya’s Capital City, Nairobi on Friday morning (13 December).
This Theravada Buddhist temple that has been functioning for more than a decade consists of a small stupa, meditation hall and a residence for monks.
President Rajapaksa worshiped at the temple and participated in several religious activities. The President also presented Atapirikara to the Chief Incumbent of the Viharaya, Venerable Wimala Thero.  The Thero chanted Seth Pirith and blessed the President and the people of Sri Lanka.

    “External Affairs Ministry Monitoring MP Sajin Vass Gunawardena”

    AHA!!

    So Sajin Vass Gunawardena is the REAL foreign minister not GLP.

    He is also the CO-ORDINATING SECRETARY of the president.

    He is a THIEF, THUG and a DEFRAUDER.

    No wonder SL’s foreign policy and foreign affairs are in a total MESS.

  4. Lorenzo Says:

    In addition to this visit 8 bilateral agreements were inked between Sri Lanka and Kenya at the State Palace in Nairobi, Kenya yesterday.

    “The agreements were inked between Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa and his Kenyan Counterpart Uhuru Kenyatta.

    Areas covered under these agreements were Tourism, Cultural corporation, sports, Diplomatic relations, relaxing of Visa regulations, bilateral trade, economy and technical corporation.”

    A very worthy visit to Kenya!!
