The Deputy Prime Minister Showkutally Soodhun who traveled abroad returned to Mauritius shortly after midnight last night aboard a private jet. The jet stack Gulf Stream has landed on the tarmac at the SSR airport exactly at 00:21 AM. It is by the Yu Lounge that the VPM came out ten minutes later. Showkutally Soodhun has subsequently left the premises of the airport aboard his official car, a BMW X3 registered 4507 JL 13. He was also escorted by a Pajero.
According to sources, the Deputy Prime Minister, who visited Saudi Arabia, was supposed to return to Mauritius tomorrow aboard an Emirates Airline flight. What prompted him to cut short his trip to return sooner than expected in Mauritius and by a private jet? We tried to get the version of Minister Soodhun but in vain as he was in a meeting, according to his press service.
