Brigadier R.M Daya Ratnayake Friday assumed duties as the new spokesman and Director, Directorate of Media of the Sri Lanka army at a brief ceremony held at the SLA Headquarters in Colombo.

Brigadier R.M.Daya Ratnayake studied at Maliyadeva College, Kurunegala and joined the Sri Lanka Army on 06 February 1980 as an Officer Cadet in Intake 13 and was commissioned to the First Battalion, Sri Lanka Light Infantry on 18 July 1981.
