Are you referring to the tweet?

On the ISOC member portal the Mauritius chapter is just a phone number,
nothing more. There is no information about other members or a
president. I see no ISOC activity in Mauritius. I read that you
participated in a Mauritius chapter meeting in 2011. I do not know if
there were meetings afterward.

In the previous email Alan Barett talked about the dual mandate of
AFRINIC; one of which is « to promote the development of the Internet ».

Is there any organization that promotes the development of the Internet
in Mauritius?
