UoM says Professor Gurib-Fakim’s claims are unfounded

In a statement issued Monday,Soodursun Jugessur, the pro-Vice
Chancellor of the University of Mauritius (UoM) replied to claims of
favouritism made by Professor Ameenah Gurib-Fakim following the
nomination, two weeks ago, of Romeela Mohee as Vice-Chancellor.
Professor Gurib-Fakim has on several occasion expressed her
frustration at not being appointed Vice-Chancellor. She stated in an
interview to weekly Week-End this Sunday that she felt she was the
victim of an injustice and has even called on the Equal Opportunities
Commission to launch an inquiry into the nomination of Ms Mohee. In
his statement, Soodursun Jugessur rejected these claims, saying that
Professor Gurib-Fakim’s assumptions were unfounded and that the
recruitment committee never took into account religious and ethnic
criteria as inferred by her. Soodursun Jugessur also said contrary to
what has been stated, Professor Gurib-Fakim was on the shortlist of
candidates since she has been interviewed by the VC Committee.
