My understanding of the Data Protection Act (2018) of Mauritius is similar to
what you mentioned above. However, with regards to email related spam, I've
put questions to CERT-MU on multiple occasions in the past, with no answer.

I am looping in Dr. Usmani in this email. He has been a board election
candidate in the past and he is the Assistant Manager of CERT-MU. He can
probably enlighten more on this.
