Mauritian political leaders expressing sorrow over the tragic assassination of Japan’s former prime minister, Shinzo Abe. 

PM Pravind Jugnauth said he was deeply shocked and dismayed by the news. “No words are enough to condemn this outrageous, violent act,” he added.

Opposition Labour Party leader, Dr Navin Ramgoolam, described Abe as a great friend of Mauritius.

“I’m deeply shocked and saddened by the unprovoked and barbaric attack on former Prime Minister of Japan, Mr Shinzo Abe. Mr Shinzo Abe has been a true and great friend of Mauritius whom I knew personally and who donated to us the sophisticated radar to detect flash floods.”

Abe was killed Friday while campaigning in the city of Nara for Liberal Democratic Party candidates, ahead of elections planned for Sunday. The former prime minister was rushed to the hospital but medical staff were unable to revive him.

Japanese authorities have arrested 41-year-old Tetsuya Yamagami of Nara in connection with the shooting.
