Different Times, Different General Secretary

50 years ago the Mauritius Labour Party got herself a dynamic General Secretary: a 30-year old who had been MP for two years already and had co-founded The Mauritius Times seven years before. Given that SSR couldn't get enough of that guy, he stayed in the job for two decades.

Guess this is what you do when you want to move the country forward instead of trying to stay in power until you are removed feet first without getting anything done. Save offering some serious competition to Pyongyang!

So Ramgoolam Jr. was unable to preserve this historic building.
