It is now confirmed that some 60 journalists have met to discuss the ways and means of forming an association. According to yesterday’s issue of Le Mauricien (L’express has also published the news), they met on Wednesday and it was Nad Sivaramen and Sedley Assone who started it all.
I’m glad the idea is taking shape and more so to see that even the chief editors of the two rivals L’express and Le Mauricien attended the meeting. Gilbert Ahnee in fact devoted his editorial to that meeting, expressing his appreciation of the initiative (as well as his qualms about how to go about it and the obstacles they may meet). He also mentioned the creation of a mailing list/forum and a blog.
Soho, let’s wait and see whether any common ground can be found. Good luck.
