Laurette postpones protest, Singh calls for collective opposition efforts

Social activist Bruneau Laurette has postponed his public protest in Port Louis, initially scheduled for August 7.

Laurette explained that the Muslim community celebrates the Ashura on that day – which is marked by fasting and mourning.

Police had already authorised the demonstration,  meant to denounce the allegations of “sniffing” against Prime Minister Pravind Jugnauth and to demand his departure.

Opposition parties have maintained their demonstration for August 12.

On Monday, the ex-CEO of Mauritius Telecom met leaders of the main opposition parties and Laurette in order to find a common date for a wider demonstration would bring together political parties, NGOs, civil rights activists and the public at large.
