The Madagascar grand DJ ‘is back’

Madagascar’s former DJ President Andry Rajoelina is back in the limelight.
Mr Rajoelina joined the campaigned for the local elections in what has been interpreted as making a bigger political statement on the island nation.
The campaigns opened in earnest last week across Madagascar and will end on July 30 at 6am.
Mr Rajoelina made his comeback in the regional capital Fianarantsoa, about 450km south of Antananarivo, where he campaigned for mayoral candidate Christine Razanamahasoa on Friday.
A day earlier, his television and radio stations had made big news of his intended visit to Fianarantsoa.
Tongues wagging
Ms Razanamahasoa was among the few senior government officials who survived the purge by the former disk jockey when he was in power from 2009 to early 2014.
As a president, Mr Rajoelina was a typical strongman, having forced his way to the top office through a coup that unseated Marc Ravalomanana.
He has largely kept a low profile since he vacated state house to the democratically-elected Hery Rajaonarimampianina.
His involvement in the campaigns have thus set tongues wagging as to what could be his plans going forward.
Ms Razanamahasoa has been a critic of President Rajaonarimampianina’s administration.
