Namal Rajapaksa appointed Sports and Youth Affairs Minister

Namal Rajapaksa has been appointed as the Minister of Sports and Youth Affairs.

This is Namal Rajapaksa’s first Government Ministerial post.

In the past he has interned on matters related to sports, especially cricket.

He took oaths before President Gotabaya Rajapaksa and Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa today.

The new Government consisting of cabinet Ministers and State Ministers took oaths at a ceremony held in Kandy today. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. This could actually be an inspired appointment. If Namal can actually control his arrogance and not appoint himself as “Coach”; “Captain”; “Opening Batsmen”; “Opening Bowler”; “Selector”, and surround himself with competent people and heed their advice, we can look forward to a renaissance of Sri Lankan sport.

    Or, we could be more realistic and wait for the inevitable scandals to unfold.
