War of words between PM Jugnauth (l) and President Ramkalawan (r)

A video showing Prime Minister Pravind Jugnauth responding to Seychellois President Wavel Ramkalawan, has resurfaced on social media, l’Express reported.

The video was broadcast only during the Hindi news bulletin of MBC/TV but somehow “disappeared” .

It contains Jugnauth’s response to Seychellois President Wavel Ramkalawan who had claimed that the Seychelles parliament “was more civilised” than that of Mauritius.

The statement came after Speaker Sooroojdev Phokeer’s infamous “Look at your face” vilification referring to MMM MP Rajesh Bhagwan’s skin disease. Bhagwan suffers from Vitiligo is a long-term condition where pale white patches develop on the skin. 

Speaking to the MBC/TV, Jugnauth urged President Ramkalawan to “take his responsibilities after such remarks.”

In response to an invitation for an official visit to the Seychelles, Jugnauth is reported to have said: “We’ll accept his invitation when we become a bit more civilized.”

Mauritius and the Seychelles have traditionally been close allies and members of numerous regional organisations.
