Air Mauritius sacks CEO, CFO in charge


Air Mauritius says it has sacked with immediate effect its chief executive officer and named the company’s chief finance officer to take charge.

The company’s board of directors did not give a reason for removing Soobhiraj Bungsraz just over two months after his appointment on September 29.

Indian Ocean island’s national carrier said in a statement that Chief Finance Operator Andries Viljoen would take over management of the airline until further notice, Reuters reports.

The announcement came after the country’s stock market had closed. Air Mauritius shares ended at 16.20 rupees, unchanged from its Tuesday close.
