Mauritius Prime Minister Jugnauth Takes Over Finance Ministry

Mauritian Prime Minister Anerood Jugnauth has taken the finance ministry under his helm following a meeting with Vishnu Lutchmeenaraidoo Monday.

“I met with the finance minister this morning and he told me that he was the victim of overwork and he asked me to relieve him of his duty,” Jugnauth told reporters at his office in the capital, Port Louis. “So I decided to withdraw the Ministry of Finance from Vishnu Lutchmeenaraidoo.”

Lutchmeenaraidoo will move to the Foreign Affairs Ministry, he said.
