Home Sweet Home For Gotabaya Rajapaksa

Sri Lanka’s disgraced former president Gotabaya Rajapaksa returned to Colombo on Friday, less than two months after he fled during the nation’s worst economic crisis in memory. In the meantime, there is a potential USD2.9b loan from the IMF. We speak to Anushka Wijesinha, economist and Co-Founder of Centre for a Smart Future, a think tank based in Sri Lanka for an update on these latest developments.
