Madagascar: Ravalomanana's wife not allowed at this time to come back to see her dying mother
Lalao Ravalomanana, the wife of former President Marc Ravalomanana, in exile with her husband in South Africa since 2009, requested the President of the Transition, Andry Rajoelina, to let her back to Madagascar, to assist her dying mother in her last days of life.
 
In the entourage of the President of the Transition, it is argued that the latter allows time for reflection before giving his approval to the decision of the provisional return of Lalao Ravalomanana. While some close to Andry Rajoelina see this back a source of "potential trigger" to a political crisis.
 
The wife of the former President had tried to return to Madagascar on 27 July 2012, but the regime was firmly opposed, forcing her plane to turn back.
 
For their part, the family Ravalomanana called on the international community to try to influence the position of the President of the Transition, Andry Rajoelina.
