Madagascar: The Prime Minister, Roger Kolo does not want the immediate return of the former president Marc Ravalomanana in the Island

While the American authorities by the voice of the Chargé d'affaires of the Embassy, Eric Wong, recently called for the return to Madagascar of the former Malagasy president, Marc Ravalomanana, deposed and exiled since 2009 in South Africa, in the wake of the strict application of article 20 of the roadmap, the Prime Minister Roger Kolo has already reminded that the priority of power today remains the improvement of the living conditions for the 22 million inhabitants of the island.
"Our democracy is too young, too low so that it is exposed to any risk of turbulence. I'm not saying it will create problems, but some may take advantage of the situation", has put forward the Malagasy prime Minister, Roger Kolo judging the current period inappropriate for an immediate return to Madagascar of the former Malagasy president Marc Ravalomanana, as reported by the Tribune newspaper of Madagascar.
As a reminder, in March, the Attorney general to the Court of appeal had also recalled that Marc Ravalomanana should be arrested once he will be back in Madagascar.
Recognised guilty of murder and complicity in murders August 28, 2010, by the Court of Tananarive, Marc Ravalomanana was sentenced in absentia to hard labour in perpetuity for life imprisonment for the death of some 30 demonstrators, on February 7, 2009, outside the Presidential Palace.
The pro-Rajoelina demonstrators were coldly shot by the presidential guard of the former Malagasy president, Marc Ravalomanana, according to Malagasy justice who also sentenced two officers in that case.
