Last week, an international-class tourism fair was organized in Antananarivo, Madagascar to seduce tour operators and drive investors’ money into the country’s high potential for tourism. Among the attendees of this fair, worldwide famous billionaire
Branson had specific plans for his visit in Madagascar: except for a few shots at the golf court, Branson had in mind to open an air route between London and Antananarivo, and purchase a holiday house in the fancy areas of the country. To fulfill his plan, Richard Branson was hoping to meet Madagascar prime minister Omer Beriziky through a dinner invitation. Unfortunately, the prime minister declined his invitation, focusing his attention on social and economic matters.
When the prime minister of one of the poorer countries in the world refuses to meet one of the richest man of the world, something is not right. Except that in this case, Beriziky might be preparing the grounds for the upcoming presidential elections, where there is a slight chance that the president Andry Rajoelina and ex-president Ravalomanana won’t be authorized to run.
