Audio: Ranjan Ramanayaka Has Heart-To-Heart Chat With Weerawansa’s Wife Despite His Self-Righteous Tirades In Public

Ranjan Ramanayaka, Deputy Minister – Social Empowerment, although he has publicly lambasted Wimal Weerawansa (MP) over allegations of fraud and wrongdoing, is quite pally with the Weerawansa family out of the public eye, as evidenced by a leaked tape of a phone conversation with Weerawansa’s wife Sashi, herself accused of obtaining a diplomatic passport after submitting fake documents.

Ranjan Ramanayaka and Sashi Weerawansa

Ramanayaka, a man with a penchant for drama and grandstanding when it comes to corruption while posing off as a man of integrity does not seem to have any issues with Mrs Weerawansa as per this phone conversation.

Sashi Weerawansa, for her part, speaks as though Ramanayaka is a long-standing personal friend who has helped her family on numerous occasions. She also speaks of Minister Rajitha Senaratne‘s wife Sujatha, who she refers to affectionately as ‘Sujatha Akka’.

The conversation is initiated by Ramanayaka who is apparently concerned about disparaging remarks made by Wimal Weerawansa. Mrs Weerawansa pleads ignorance of such remarks but indicates in the conversation that the two (herself and Ramanayaka) are close friends and that she has been communicating with one of Ramanayake’s associates to obtain some information.

It is not certain when this conversation took place or what the file and issue referred to are about.

The following is the English translation of the full conversation:

S: Good morning

R: Good morning

S: How are you?

R: How are you, how are you? Nangi, even yesterday I have been scolded. I tried to settle the issue, but it’s not going to happen. Your husband has said on the page that I am digging for dirt. I can’t do anything when I am attacked like this.

S: Attacked you?

R: Yes. That Ranjan is digging up dirt, that he rushes into temples, saying ‘that Ranja, One-Shot and saying nasty things like that.

S: No, no. We listened to the speeches, there was nothing like that. Did you listen?

R: Yes, I listened. The video was sent to me. I have it with me. That there’s a fellow called Ranjan who crashes into Buddhist institutions and destroys Buddhist rights. I have been scolded without any reason.

S: I haven’t gone and won’t go for meetings, Ayye.

R: Where are you? Are you home?

S: I am in Dehiwala, at my aunty’s place.

R: I called Dr Rajitha [Senaratne] and that a message has been sent to him. But why is he like this?

S: He hasn’t been home in 2-3 days because of the meeting. I didn’t meet him. I don’t know.

R: Where’s that thing you told me about? I will see the lokka today. You didn’t send me the file.

S: So you didn’t answer when I called.

R: Did you call that day? You said.

S: I called you to say that I won’t be able to come but that I will send it. Then I called your production manager, Prageeth. I told him that I will give it to him and asked if he could give it to you. He had tried and tried, he said…

R: Who is Prageeth?

S: The one who is with Sunil T?

R: Ah, yes, the dark guy. I’ll tell Lucky to do it. I will tell Maithri Lokka to sort it out. So what’s new Nangi. Everything is ok now, right?

S. Sujatha Akka called me….Rajitha Ayya’s wife…she said she had told you and that she won’t let anything happen to me. [She said] that it’s with the Attorney General and that nothing can happen. Actually, you have helped me a lot and I am with you. They will resolve it. If there’s anything, I will call you. Regarding this matter [Wimal] I will send him and sms…

R: No, no, no…don’t do that now. He’ll say that I am trying to get you to get him to stop this. I wouldn’t call you for such a thing.

S: Ayye, but they can interpret things in various ways, you know.

R: Ayyo, that’s true, that’s true.

S: That I talk, we met, but I haven’t even posted a photo anywhere.

R: [Laughing] Ah…the one that was taken that day?

S: Yes.

R: Ok, send it to that dark boy. Make sure it gets to me.

S: Yes, it’s very good…as a human being (he/she) is very good. Politics is not important. As a human being (he/she) is a good person. I tell everyone this. Sujatha Akka will call me in a little while. If necessary I will call you Ayya.

R: Right, right, right. I will tell them to collect the file from you.

S: Thank you very much Ayya for calling and helping me. Forgive me if you were hurt in any way. I am not part of all that.

R: Ok. Ok. I’ll tell Lucky to call you.

S: Ok. Budusarani.

    This seems to be a very old tape. CT has an obligation to tell readers the date of the conversation. Otherwise CT is unethical

    This is a private telephone conversation between two middle aged people. A tape of same had been leaked into the media probably by the hubby Booruwansa.

    The audio fully exonerate Ranjan. There is no secret request for sex or any other support he is seeking.

    Only worry is he calls the crooked woman ‘nangi’, but may be he does not want to make enemies.

    But Ranjan will continue to expose corrupt people and he has my support. I think he had exposed Sashi Weerawanse corruption too.

    I love this game man! It is unique to SinhaLE Wildlife Sanctuary Lankawe!

    I thought when Ranjan was going with Nagananda, Ranjan going to be destroyed. Now…… Can somebody save Nagananda, please?

    CT is stripping the mask of all crooks.

    Looks like Ramanayaka has too much unspent energy that makes him poke in all the wrong places.

    General saying is , a woman is shy in front of the doctor only for the first baby ,
    I mean in the Paradise Island , and then on it is nothing for her ! That is the
    situation of our politicians ! Once in the mud , you get used to it and you don’t
    even want to come out of it .

    Weerawansa Sashi is an exceptionally sex hungry, sexy woman. Nowonder she tried to seduce the handsome bachelor Ranjan, but Ranjan did not get caught. Well done Ranjan!

      Shiromani Manage
      Oh, just give us a break, Shiromani. Every woman is sexy in one way or many ways. If you are not, I pity you.
      “…. she tried to seduce the handsome bachelor Ranjan..”, my foot!
      According to the “transcription” of the “unverified” audio recording, (I didn’t listen to the audio tape) it is pretty obvious to any fool that Ranjan’s offer to “help” is to stop Wimal attacking him!!!!!
      Ranjan the spider-monkey-man who raises his voice for social justice and who is constantly vociferous against corruption in the eyes of public, in CT’s words “despite his self-righteous tirades in public” tried to use women’s natural vulnerability in court cases to his advantage to control politician husbands.
      If Ranjan was man enough, he should have approached Wimal direct without going behind his back to reach out to his wife to make Wimal stop criticizing him by “offering help” in court cases.
      I can see what CT tried to expose, which is Ranjan’s DUPLICITY.

        Oh, I just wanted to define what I said in “every woman is sexy in one way or many ways” as it might give a wrong impression.
        What I meant by “sexy in many ways” is, some women are cute; some are attractive; some are lovely; some are cuddly; some are romantic; some are fearless, some are witty; some are confident; some are adventurous; some are soft; some are humorous; some are sweet; some are irresistible; ……. oh the list is endless! Every woman has one or a few of these. Women make the world beautiful, animated, interesting and lively.

          Thanks for the timely clarification. Yes you can add much more to the list. What would men do without women, and women do without men. Any thoughts “sexy” lady – from the long list of course !!

      Ranjan has no time to act in films-so he acts on political stages and Parliament.

    You must be referring to the famous Mahaegodages of Rajagiriya. No we are Gamaathiges from Gampola.

    You are a dumb idiot. You said you never listned to the audio tape but then write all these comments!

    Ranjan never offered to help her in the court cases. Listen to the tapes and then talk.

    How gossipy we are!
    Compare the interest in Bellana-gate and this frenzy over a PRIVATE telephone conversation! We must wonder as to who leaked it and why.

      Chulani Susanthika Gamaathige

      Too bad …….. Anyway the word “currently” gently resonates in my mind from time to time ……. sending me on a reverie to the banks of Mahaweli at Gampola ……… where I’m dancing the Cha Cha with ……………
