Everyone at the grounds and especially those around the stage at the Royal/Thomian Mustangs Trophy awards ceremony at the R.Premadasa Stadium last night was wondering why Daham Sirisena was not on stage this time around.
“Where the fuck is Daham today?” asked a disgruntled group of old boys who were waiting to jump on stage if Daham was to breach protocol and security like he did at last week’s big match awards ceremony.
Many distinguished old boys had requested that an inquiry be held as to why the Royal / Thomian big match joint organizing committee failed to prevent Daham from getting on to the stage and also permitting him to remain there during the entire awards distribution Colombo Telegraph reliably learns.
At the conclusion of last week’s big match,the awards ceremony and the Royal College victory celebrations was marred when President Mathripala Sirisena’s son Daham breached security and all norms of protocol when he jumped on stage initially to shake the hand of the chief guest Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe.
He then forcibly stood next to the premier on his left hand side until Zulki Hamid a Royal College joint committee member took him to the far right hand side of the stage and asked him to get off.
Since the brat Daham refused to get off saying he was the son of President, Hamid permitted him to stay at the far right corner of the stage away from the Prime Minister and trophy distribution. This is clearly visible in the video when another joint committee member blocks Daham’s view shunning him away from the limelight.
“We did not know who he was. There was this fellow who jumped on stage and approached our chief guest the Prime Minister. We were also wondering who he was as he was scruffily dressed in a Royal College coloured t-shirt. His shoes was also dirty and he looked as if he needed a hair cut badly. I was more concerned about the Prime Minister’s safety more than anything else” a joint committee member said when contacted by Colombo Telegraph.
