  • Description

    Internal self-government for MAURITIUS within a year.

    The island's Minister for Labour and Social Security, Mr. RINGADOO, arrived in Nairobi today on his way home from London, where he had attended talks on self-government. He was met by the Kenya Protocol Officer, Mr. HINAWAY, and the acting Labour Commissioner, Mr. OWUOR. With the minister was the Governor of Mauritius, Sir John RENNIE.

    The Chief Minister of Mauritius, Mr. RAMGOOLAM, is still in London having talks on financial matters with the British Government.

    Mr. RINGADOO told a news conference at the airport that their talks in London had been very successful. Mauritius was going to have internal self-government within a year, and it was hoped that independence would be granted within two years. He said it had been agreed that the island should have a coalition government during internal self-government.

    The minister told correspondents that mauritius was looking forward to the formation of an East African Federation. All communities in Mauritius he said, favoured such a federation.
