On her arrival in Mauritius, the Secretary-General said:

“I thank our host government, for your warm welcome to this beautiful country of Mauritius, and for your active leadership within the Commonwealth. It is a true delight to be back with Ministers in person after the grief and separation of the pandemic, which has kept us apart for so long.

Here, in Mauritius, our Law Ministers will consider vital reforms and examine the extensive technical and practical assistance that the Commonwealth Secretariat offers to all member countries. Assistance in areas such as improving access to justice, adapting to the digitalisation of courts, climate change and food security challenges, military justice reforms, anti-corruption, cybersecurity, and much more.”

    A person who has been supporting a losing political party in 6 out of 7 elections.A person who is supporting a political party that has lost 36 out of 37 court cases,is calling a person imbecile.There are a lot of people with the right to post comments from a mental institution

    What concrete benefits have the Commonwealth Caribbean countries gained from this lady’s privileged position? All we hear about her is the number of meetings she attends or convenes.

    Life in this part of the world hasn’t changed for the better, conversely, it has deteriorated. The people have not benefited from the good lady’s ‘gifted intellect and talents’.

        It appears as though you have allowed me to occupy real estate in your head rent free. My right to freely express my opinion will never be stymied like imbeciles such as you.
