  1. Good. Good!

    But is it ‘Patricia Lumumba University’ or Patric Lumumba University’?

    Or, was it re-named recently after some daughter or somebody called ‘Patricia’? 🙂

    1. thanks for the comment. it should be corrected as “Patrice Lumumba University”. but when reporting this news, many web sites spelled it as “Patricia”. however as per wikipedia, your word is correct and edited our article as well.

    1. He he.. don’t you see how wise you are to waste discussing other peoples doctorate. you have habit of criticizing for everything. It is serious psychological problem. It come with hate or disappointments. by the way analyzing a phd given to a person do not make any change in people. I do not praise or regret. no one can deny that he did something which some phd holders could not do. i don’t see any difference between mervin and you. 😀 both need some medical help .

      1. Stop sucking up. You are beggining to irritate people.

        You can have as many docotrates as you please but if you dont have humane qualities you arn’t worth anything. You probably live in a lonely world with your cap and cloak.

        I am not a political person, but I believe in justice. I cannot understand why SF has been arrested.This is more like zimbabve than Sri Lanka.

        My God, whats going to happen to Sri Lanka? We already have a dictatorship.

      2. anoynmous ,

        Sf was trying to use top secrets for his personal gains and trying to win international sympathy by giving them. You guys accept that?. SF has done enough damage to sri lanka

  4. Hey, This is not a doctor Rate.
    As well as the rigging of election result, this is also a kind of cheating. In the picture, you can clearly see that it is a DIPLOMA. And the black cloak is not worn by doctors.
