It is getting stranger that same date newspaper # No. 16578 (07/11/2008), 
L'Express Mauritius have 2 different articles:

English language article "The revival of daylight saving time : Energy 
restates introduction of DST from 1st November 2008 to 31st March 2009.

However same date (07/11/2008) and same reference newspaper  # No. 16578 - 
different article in French language "Le gouvernement avance l’introduction de 
l’heure d’été"
states that DST in Mauritius will start on October 26 and will end on March 
27 ...???
