Case of the missing Gen. Kobbekaduwa statue

By Mallika Etulgama
The missing statue of late war hero General Denzil Kobbekaduwa constructed on a commission issued by the Kandy Municipal Council was raised at the monthly meeting on February 27 of the Kandy Municipal Council by Attorney-at-Law M.P. Jayasinghe

He said that he organised a Committee to erect a statue for late General Kobbekaduwa, but at the same time he was informed that the Kandy Municipal Council was making arrangements for the construction and erection of a statue for the hero. So, the committee was disbanded. And now there is no statue except a pillar at Byrde Park in Centre of Kandy.

He questioned as to where this so called Statute of Kobbekaduwa could be.
Mayor L.B. Aluvihare who presided said that the statue was constructed but the wife of General Kobbekaduwa had rejected it and therefore this Statue could not be erected.
