SJB MP Mujibur Rahman tests positive

Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) Parliamentarian Mujibur Rahman has tested positive for COVID-19.

The MP is currently receiving treatment at a private hospital in Colombo.

His family has been placed under quarantine as a precautionary measure.

MP Rahman is the latest Parliamentarian to contract the virus.

Nuwara Eliya District MP Maruthapandi Rameshwaram also tested positive for COVID-19 yesterday.

His family has also been isolated, while contact tracing is underway to identify his close contacts.

The two Parliamentarians are the first few MPs to be infected during the third wave of the coronavirus which is currently spreading in Sri Lanka.

Earlier, Parliamentarians Dayasiri Jayasekara, Pavithra Wanniarachchi, and Rauff Hakeem had tested positive for COVID-19 during the second wave of the coronavirus. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. At least the Parliament and the Media will be free from the “DECEPTIVE” talk of a so-called Muslim politician who began “SHOUTING” with the left movement, then the JVP, then the UNF, then the UNFG and then the UNP and now clinging to the SJB. A loud mouthed so-called Muslim politician who has duped the poor Muslim humble voters in the Colombo district making false promises to the Muslims at large like “Empty Vessels Makes the Biggest Noise”. It’s a proverb that means that those with the least talent and knowledge usually speak the most, speak the loudest, and create the most fuss — whatever makes their presence felt the most. This is the politics that this man has been carrying on, but the humble Muslims voters of Colombo District have been slow to understand the real person, who he is. It is time up that these characters have to be removed from the political field of Muslim representation in the next elections, if the Muslims are to engage in “participatory politics” in Sri Lanka.
