So some respectable dodo in Mauritius might have lorded it in his nest, and discussed the arrival of that shipful of pitiless sailors in want of animal food. 'We will peck them to death tomorrow, my dear.'

OVERVIEW: MAURITIUS

 

With parliamentary elections due in 2015 strategic political manoeuvring began as far back as 2011 when Pravind Jugnauth and his Mouvement Socialiste Mauricien (MSM) (Mauritian Socialist Movement) withdrew from the governing coalition. There were allegations of corruption, which he denied, saying the move was politically motivated. Nevertheless, he was charged by the independent Commission against Corruption. This move was followed in March 2012 by the resignation of President Sir Aneerood Jugnauth, who just happens to be Pravind Jugnauth’s father. Sir Aneerood cited concerns with the state of the economy and law and order as his reasons for resigning. He was soon back in politics, taking over the leadership of the MSM and forming a coalition with the Mouvement Militant Mauricien (MMM) (Mauritian Militant Movement), the largest opposition party.
