Krishna Rambojun, Mauritian Working in Madagascar Possibly Kidnapped

A Mauritian working in the capital of Madagascar, Krishna Rambojun, is apparently missing. The police of Madagascar has not made any comment on whether the man is actually missing or not. Nor has his family. But, the possibility of him having been kidnapped is not farfetched either.


It is common for Mauritians to travel to Madagascar often enough for work purposes. Many firms have subsidiary groups on the island, and Mauritians make the journey to and fro Madagascar and Mauritius as part of their work schedules. That is how Krishna Rambojun had made the trip to Tana (short for Antananarivo, the capital of Madagascar). He has been working as financial director for the firm Ucodis. However, he is seemingly missing since two days now. Little information is available as to what could have happened to him.

Is he really missing or not? Has he been kidnapped as he was on his way back home around 18:00 on Wednesday 2nd of July? Questions difficult to answer. The police force of Madagascar has not made any comment on this particular case. However, it has been confirmed that they are currently working on a case of a missing person. Uptil now, no ransom has been asked. Does the case they are working on have anything to do with Krishna Rambojun?

L’express reported that according to a source from Madagascar, the family of Krishna Rambojun has been evasive about the question. The Mauritians having settled at Tana tried to contact his wife, but to no avail. The attempts of L’express to contact the wife have also been futile. All the authorities are being contacted so as to shed some light on the affair. The Mauritian diplomacy located at Madagascar has been informed of the case yesterday. The Mauritian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Arvin Boolell, has indicated that he was not even aware of the case.

Is this really a case of kidnapping? If yes, why hasn’t there been a demand for ransom yet?

So many crucial questions remain unanswered. Meanwhile, the Mauritians from Madagascar state that missing cases there are quite common. Mauritians have in the past been kidnapped and released upon submission of ransoms. For instance, Benoit Ng who worked for Avitech, a subsidiary of FAIL at Madagascar, and his wife were kidnapped and set free when a ransom of Rs 4 millions was given out to the criminals. That happened two years ago in May 2012. Another such case was reported last month, on the 23rd of June, whereby the owner of a bakery was kidnapped and released on the very same day.

It seems like all points to the possibility that Krishna Rambojun has been kidnapped. Only time will tell how true is this though. Let us hope that he is safe and sound and that we’ll hear from him soon enough.
