After the disastrous flooding of the 30th March, the prime minister asked the three mobile operators to implement a SMS Warning system which can be used to inform Mauritians about critical weather changes. Exactly two weeks after his request, the mobile operators (Orange, Emtel and MTML) got the ‘opportunity’ to test their new systems.
I did get the message but ONLY 12 hours after the Class 2 cyclonic alert was given:
The content of the message itself was a bit *cough* *cough*. It was kinda incomplete or perhaps incorrectly phrased Bref, the message itself left many persons amused. Was that written in Kreol Morisien? IMHO, on top of being very late, it gave a feeling that the system was not really ready. The message could have at least been properly formulated or perhaps more helpful.
btw, anyone is aware if the messages were sent in alphabetical order? Several of my acquaintances have never received their SMS.
Anyway, nice day to everyone!
