PM launches a warning to "vultures"
If, on the one hand, the Prime Minister praised the solidarity and patriotism of many Mauritians following the recent floods, on the other hand it has launched a stern warning to "vultures" who seek to exploit this situation to try to destroy the national unity in the country. He believes that this is the same "small minority", which represents only 2% of the population, which comes on the radio almost every day to unfairly criticize the government.
In the same vein, the Prime Minister sought to reassure flood victims February 13 and March 30, they will all benefit from financial assistance under the Prime Minister's Relief Fund. This year, said Navin Ramgoolam, has been slightly delayed because some people who have no material losses recorded during the two tragedies are on the list of victims to take advantage of this situation. Prime Minister pledges and fraudsters will be punished.
Returning to the preliminary report of the team of foreign experts, which includes five Singaporeans, a German, a Belgian and an expert on natural disasters, the head of government stressed that the report also cites a lack of coordination between local authorities. Share the opinion that said Navin Ramgoolam. The Prime Minister said now waiting for the final report to take the necessary actions.
