Censorship: Presidential Offspring ‘Referee-Beater’ Rohitha Rajapaksa On Buzz With Daily Mirror

Presidential offspring Rohitha Rajapaksa assaulted Rugby referee Dimitri Gunasekera last week  (5th May) at the Havelocks Grounds in Colombo after the Navy lost a qualifying match. Non of Sri Lankan media reported the story. Daily Mirror today interviewed Rohitha but failed to ask a single question related to the Rugby referee attack incident. We publish below the Daily Mirror interview in full;

On the column, he speaks about fashion, his healthy lifestyle and his take on life…

Although he loves his outdoor activities, from water sports to racing, he has the artistic skills to write a heartwarming poem or even to paint a breathtaking picture.. a true romantic!
Enjoy Rohitha on the Buzz with Danu.

 

Full name  Rohitha Rajapaksa
Pet name Chichi
Hometown  Weerakatiya
Status Committed without a doubt 
Birthday 15/06/89
School S. Thomas’ College, Mount Lavinia

Passions Passion for each other 
Favorite Colour  Turquoise blue
Favourite Cartoon Powerpuff Girls
Would you call yourself a FASHIONISTA? Yes

 

The story behind the name “Chichi”? 
When my brother Yo was small, he found it difficult to pronounce ‘chooty’ (small) malli. So once, at a party, he had been stuffing his pockets with food. One of the aunties had asked him as to why he was not eating the food but stuffing it in his pockets, and he had replied saying, “This is for my chichi (supposed to be chooty) malli’. At the time of this incident I was about 1 or 2 months old, since then everyone calls me ‘chichi’.
Your love for racing, when did it start?  
From the day we were exposed to vehicles, always loved being fast and I love the adrenaline rush you get in fast things.
Do you like being called Chichi? 
Yes, I just want everyone to call me that and nothing else.
How were you in school? I was decent, did my work, had a bunch of friends from my younger days and never changed them.
How would you describe yourself in two words? “Just right”
What is your favourite thing to spend money on? Bikes and cars.
What is the weirdest thing about you? Are you proud of it? 
Always needing to make everyone around me workout, especially my girlfriend. I am not proud of it, but I do feel good when I see the people around me fit and healthy.
As the President’s son, two disadvantages you face personally? 
1-Public eye on everything I do
2- Lack of freedom in society and the restriction on my girlfriend and friends in their personal lives.
 
How are you at home?  I am the same person I am outside.
Your fashion statement?  Anything that makes me look fit and strong. I try out almost all the styles but I am not too picky since mostly anything fits perfectly.
What would be your PERFECT day? Wake up and workout with my girlfriend and friends, finish my work, have the freedom to face the rest of the day, watching movies and riding bikes and end it with a good dinner with all my friends.
Something you admire in your Dad? I admire his commitment to staying healthy and working out every morning.
Something you admire in your mom? I admire her eagerness to help people.
Are you a Mamma’s boy, or a Dadda’s boy? I play as a parents’ boy, having both is better in every way.
Where do you like to shop? I shop everywhere, anything that fits perfect will be purchased, price and name does not matter.  However, for belts and shoes LV is my brand.
‘IF’
If you could have personally witnessed anything, what would you want to have seen? 
I have seen the world, the only thing remaining is out of space, which I strongly believe I will see in a few years.
If you could pick any car.. what will you choose? 
1967 fastback Shelby GT500 (Eleanor)
If you woke up one day looking like Yo, what would you do?  Grow my hair, run to my girlfriend’s closet and burn it, get her a new set of clothes and give her freedom to choose her own style of clothing with no restrictions. Send my girlfriend to a cosmetic surgeon and get her birthmark removed, go run to Yo’s room , grab his ID and credit card and shop as much as I want to and meet the girlfriend’s parents and go propose that I am about the age to get married and put Yo in a bit of trouble and hide till I recover my same old good looks as Chichi. Hahaha basically to create chaos.
If you had to be trapped in a TV show for a month, which one would you choose? Spartacus
If you could only have one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be? 
A good yummy chicken burger.
On the Spot
Rugby/racing – first choice? RUGBY
Namal, Yoshitha – who do you think is more fashionable? 
Neither, I advise them both, but if I had a choice I would say Yo is smarter and Namal is justtttt him, he loves his jeans and body fit T-shirts, cannot complain.
Kumar, Mahela, Angelo – who is your favourite captain? Mahela
Describe Tatyana Lee in two words?  Picture perfect
Would you ever get in to politics? NOPE
Have you had a stalker? Have many, still do and can’t make them stop, and it gets annoying when most of them pretend to be me in social media sites.

    This boy has no class instead he follows.. “belts and shoes LV is my brand.” What a trash and he does not know about the real world and smart leather.. Look like a girls choice.

    He said about cars,
    If you could pick any car.. what will you choose?
    1967 fastback Shelby GT500 (Eleanor)

    Wow Shelby is a guy with good taste with a limited budget and his cars were nice but handle badly and had terrible handling characteristics..
    Real petrol head would not say what this guy is saying and bottom line is he is a follower rather than other way around.

    A well organised interview by Daily Mirror (or Daily Mirrage) and well prepared replies. The kid is flortunate to have a good father, who provides the 23 year old kid with girls to play about.

    Actually it is really not the fault of this kid, just look at the dumb questions the DM has asked. Look at his daily routine. All he does is getting up doing a workout (with his gf? Does she live with him?), and then do some unspecified work, then basically hang around with his friends, eating good food and driving fast cars. How many 24 year olds from normal families can afford a lifestyle like this, and even if they do, would anyone they be dumb enough to actually admit to it (except maybe Sumanasekara’s children who seem to be wearing designer clothes and frequenting trendy night clubs in Toronto and Melbourne?, showing off their class and culture – lol). Most Sri Lankan children that I know who are living overseas are taught hard lessons in life and actually work pretty hard to become doctors and other high level professionals through sheer hard work and dedications. Even after achieving these heights they hardly have time for this type of lifestyle. My question is what purpose is served by this interview? Should the DM not interview some poor kid who came from nowhere and achieved something in life and provide aspiration to others who struggle to reach their full potential? How many DM readers identify with this boy?

    This guy looks and sounds like a spoiled brat obsessed with his appearance, image and dubious taste for fast cars.

    His answers to tame, obsequious questions (as if he’s some sort of pop star) suggest a stupid young muscle-head with a massively inflated ego. And extremely poor taste. Sounds like he imagines he’s royalty. But he isn’t.

    If I were Chichi’s girlfriends parents, I would take her and run out of this country. Giving your daughter to this ruthless, corrupt, family, is dangerous. This is one family that I would not want to be connected to.

    I think its time to pull this column out of the CT. The subject and the comments are ridiculous. What this silly boy does is his own business; Danu should be ashamed that he let his DM readers down by printing this rubbish.

    It’s official:

    henceforth night club buddhism is a state recognized religion. considerations are being made on whether to give it the ‘consitutionally foremost place’.

    One thing good about this guy: he’s just stupidly straight forward like his uncle, you know who :D so it’s easy for us to identify the evil.

    Sadly, this must be first indications that Colombo Telegraph have reached the scrapings at the bottom of the barrel. What purpose does it serve to present us with this drivel about a brat whose only claim to fame is that he came from the loins of an accidental president who place in Sri Lankan history has yet to be decided?

    This guy thinks he’s it – doesn’t realize he’s just a lump of shit! An ego so big, one of these days his head will balloon up so much he’ll go floating up in the clouds! It really shows what the parents have allowed him to think about himself. Says price is not an issue if he something suits his taste – the very same attitude that results in his elder sibling grab almost anything he sets his sights on which he happens to fancy.

    Don’t these dudes realize that they can’t live in this bubble forever? Nor can they take all this stuff with them after their time here is over. Such a pompous attitude at such a young age… we have to truly feel sorry for this deluded mind.

    Please advise the fellow Sri Lankan kids not to follow them for they are bad examples. In many years of travelling seen how Sri Lankan kids are making it out well all over the world, not like these spoon fed no good brats. I seen it in Japan, one who lost his both parents was doing business administration in a famous university. As he is known to me, I went to see him in his student dom but I saw him at 1 AM when he came after his part time work. They go for classes at at 8 AM finish by afternoon. Then they go for work to earn their student fees, this is in addition to the half scholarship given by the university. In Melbourne one boy was doing medicine but on the first year award day tears were pouring from his eyes as he was one of the ten best out of thirty thousand of them. He never thought its a such big event as all the other best students parents and well wishes were there and non was there for him. There are hundreds and thousands of like these. This is how our proud kids bring the name and fame for for them, their parents and the country, and not like these no good brats.

    He did not send any satellite, anywhere. The Chinese got him and his friends to sucker us( stupid Sri Lankans) to lend them our slot in space. So they stuck a sticker on the module and pretended it was a Sri Lankan sat. And, we all clapped !

    No issue with writing an article about a talented, ambitious young person. There are thousands in Sri Lanka who are trying to make something out of life. Mr. Rajapakse does not fit the bill.

    He is aimless, having had a lazy life at the nations’ expense and now wants us to admire his what? So, he does not like politics. Of course he does’nt. He just wants the benefits of it, without the work.

    And, shame of the young girls parents. What kind of trash are they?

    Funny, none of the pseudo Sinhala Buddhists noticed the cultural/traditional violations?? I guess that is just reserved for the Tamils and Muslims. Hic!

    I love this!

    He really and truly shows off his true nature! Given a chance he will run to his girlfriend’s closet and burn it, get her a new set of clothes and give her freedom (for once?) to choose her own style of clothing; send his silly girlfriend (who appears to suck up to this sadist chauvinist pig); send her to a cosmetic surgeon and get her birthmark removed!!! (a birth mark that worries him that much and he doesn’t like it – this is unbelievable!). Thank you Danu, for enlightening us on the existence of such rubbish on earth.

    He reveals at the age of 23 that he has seen the world! He of course means that he has gone to almost all the countries. Even great philosophers have not been able to see the world.

    So for this spoilt brat, the only thing remaining is out of space!
    Wonderful insights in to lives of the Presidency of the country and their mad insane ambitions.

    And I notice that he does not have an idol – which shows his good taste, specially as he says he admires his father only for his dedication to keep fit! Oh My God :)

    This interview is beyond magnificent – Danu, you surpass exceptional journalism. I am proud of you. Now take the next obvious step – interview a poor struggling undergraduate of the exact same age, ask exactly the same questions and put it in the same page.

    hmm. I thought Price Harry was spoilt. That guy tried to see the other side of the world too and willingly served in Army. Despite his night club and lavish life style, we have seen his good stories in the media as well.

    Woww. This little guy claiming he has seen the world is so funny.

    I think it is a good eye opener for SL public.
