The Sri Lanka army, taking its increased and matured professionalism to foreign shores with an urgent medical project at the request of the UN, has reportedly succeeded in establishing its first-ever SRIMED Level 2 Hospital in Bor, the Sri Lanka-based Adaderana reported.

The UN mission project has reportedly been hailed as one of the fastest and well-planned ventures ever seen in mission director’s entire UN career. The mission is headed by Lt. Col. Rohan Fernando.

As such 10 officers and 50 other ranks will reportedly take over duties as a replacement for 62-strong member contingent under the Phase 5 that is expected to return to the island this afternoon (03) upon successful completion of their tenure of office in South Sudan.

The hospital is reportedly equipped with necessary components for secondary care medical services, including an operating theatre, labour room, intensive care unit, emergency department, out-patient department, dental surgery, dental workshop, pharmacy, medical store, radiology department, clinical laboratory, ECG room, sterilizing department, biomedical engineering section, medical waste disposal section, freezer, mortuary, isolation ward and laundry plus wards, among others.

Now recognized by the UN as a troop contributing nation, the Sri Lankan army has reportedly been praised for its contribution to peacekeeping in Africa.

      Sri Lankans,
      You better devise ways to remove your mercenaries out of our country peacefully than trying to be bringing another mercenaries. If they don’t have better jobs in Sri Lanka, then kill them. This is South Sudan and South Sudan is not a country of Bantus who worship white people, Indians, Arabs, evil juus (so-called israelis) or other lighter skin evils like *Bantuses* in South Africa, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Zambia, Mozambique, Malawi, Kenya, DR Congo, Central Africa republic (CAR), West Africa or Carribbean countries>>>

        Here in South Sudan, we respect the ’Tamil Tigers’ they took up arms in the same year with our mighty SPLM/A in 1983, they lost the war in your Sri Lanka, but we won the war. Indians, we have informed you pretty honestly all the times, we don’t like you in and your ANGLO-AMERICANS, their evil juus (so-called israelis) and their gulf Arab states paymasters in our country-----in Africa to be precise, reasons, pure HATRED and RACISM. Mr. Idda Amin Dada kicked out you vermin out Uganda in 1970th and you vermin are going to be rounded up here in South Sudan with your white Americans, English people, their evil juus (so-called israelis), cloned so-called arabs of North Sudan,>>>>>

You creeps think you would be made African like there the so-called *Indians in Kenya, Zambia, Zimbabwe, South Africa or Namibia?* Through intrigues of *peacekeeping business bullsh*ts?. Try again creeps. Go to Carribbean, Fiji, Australia, the US, the UK and hell if you creeps want to be somewhere. You are not welcomed into South Sudan, simple and plain.

Did you creep resolved your own problems than to come and your foolish long noses into a country that doesn’t consider you and your masters anyone. Sri Lankans, there is your in Indian country of Nepal. Her mercenaries were sent to ’Haiti’ not very far away, from Canada and the US, in 2009 during the Earth quake. The Nepalese mercenaries (so-called peacekeepers) went and ’infected the Haitian people with cholera’. The people of Haiti were the ones that kicked out their French masters long time ago and we respect them.>>>>

              People of Haiti just had an *earth quake* in their country in 2009, but evils in the US, the UK, France, their UN and their sleazy NGOs thought, they can take your poor Nepalese to infect them with diseases instead. Sri Lankans, we are way too well ahead of you creeps. We the ancient Egyptians. Have creeps ever heard the Dinkas/Muonyjiengs of the Sudan crossing Mediterranean Sea to Italy or Spain?, Not really. We can cross the Mediterranean sea like other Africans or Arabs, but we know the game better than even white men and Arabs>>>
