Let me add that this article is not authoritative and has neither been endorsed nor authorised by AFRINIC.
The statements are baseless as no hard facts have been provided.

That’s correct. So either one or both of the two sources of information are unreliable? Can you point what exactly is unreliable?
http://bgp.he.net/country/MU <http://bgp.he.net/country/MU> says it sees 18 ASNs out of which 13 are advertising IPv6 space.
To me this seems very close to what 6spots is mentioning 12 out of 18 (as at 2016-08-01).
I would suggest that you verify your information first before making wrong statements.

This is what I am thinking as well.
