Sri Lanka ex-president’s son proposes to sweetheart atop Kilimanjaro

ECONOMYNEXT – Former president Mahinda Rajapaksa’s youngest son Rohitha travelled from Tangalle to Tanzania to propose marriage to his sweetheart on top of snow-covered Kilimanjaro, a sibling said.

Second son Yoshitha was the first to announce the engagement yesterday atop the highly romantic setting on the highest mountain in the African continent.

“Congratulations to @Rohitha_Chichi Malli for proposing to our beloved @Tatyanalee94. Couldn’t be happier for these two,” Yoshitha said referring to his youngest brother and Tatyana Lee.

It appeared that legislator sibling Namal too was at the dormant volcano when Rohitha’s love erupted. He went on one knee and proposed to Tatyana who wore snug ski clothing.

Namal said the engagement followed nine years of courtship.

“Nine years in the making & you’re still my favourite couple,” Namal said on twitter.
