As they returned to their cars, the Minister of Finance and MSM leader Pravind Jugnauth, Minister of Regional Administrations Anwar Husnoo, PPS Roubina Jadoo-Jaunbocus, and other members of the Lepep alliance were attacked by a group of people presenting themselves as “street vendors”. The latter accused them of “preventing them from working” in the streets of Port Louis.

The tension was very high, and members of the Special Support Unit (SSU) had to be summoned on the spot. They intervened and the calm returned around 10:25 PM.

Pravind Jugnauth, Anwar Husnoo, Roubina Jadoo-Jaunbocus and the other members of the Lepep alliance were able to leave the premises under escort of the police.
