Must read

Last Saturday, thousands of Mauritians took to the streets and marched in the capital of Port Louis calling for a general election and protesting against alleged corruption. 

The leader of the opposition Arvin Boolell said in the National Assembly that Public institutions “cannot continue to rot,” and that “We walk for freedom.”

This unrest marks the third major protest against the government in eight months. While those in August and September centered on a fuel spill from a Japanese-owned tanker off.
