CSO Chief Should Be Asked to Stay On

You may not be aware that our Central Statistical Office will be losing its boss this November. Indeed Harish Bundhoo will soon be reaching the milestone which decades ago would have made him an old person. That was then.

The snag now is that Mauritius needs Bundhoo more than Bundhoo needs Mauritius. Beyond being a great professional he has demonstrated a quality that has practically disappeared in Mauritius: independence. And he's shown that on more occasions than one.

The Prime Minister would therefore be well-advised to make sure that he stays on so that we don't lose the the little sanity that we still have.
