The former minister of ICT, Tassarajen Pillay Chedumbrum, spoke his thoughts out on the issue today, 2nd of December, to the media. According to him, the firm behind gov.mu, Internet Direct Limited, has acted out of bad intentions.
He argued that the government website has a “crucial role” to play now at a point in time when the general elections are literally only a matter of a few days away. He pointed out that IDL has seized the opportunity to announce the news to its own advantage, with the view to disseminating fear among the population, putting Mauritians in a state of unrest.
