Famous British novelist Eric Arthur Blair better known as Gorge Orwell stands tall in the history of mankind as one of the most prominent writers engaged against totalitarianism and social injustice. The clarity of Orwell’s language is such that some stories can merely be narrated by a single quote of his.
To depict the propaganda that has led this government to power in 2014, the fascist tactics deployed to expropriate BAI and till the current repeated waves of lies unleashed to manipulate public opinion on the issue of IREKO, what could be better than one of Orwell’s all time great quotes “ Political language… is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind”.
The multiple raids carried out as from the 6th April 2015 in various offices of BAI was motivated by the concern to secure various specific documents which are today missing. The reluctance of Pravind Jugnauth’s government to set up an Inquiry Commission on the whole issue of BAI is a blatant evidence of to what extent the rot rides the state.
Capital brings to you a first set of documents relating to the works carried out by IREKO in the Refurbishment of Old Parliament House bearing reference CPB/96/2009.
