3% is simply wrong. French is spoken by the majority of the population. French is a mandatory subject in school and you can even look at the examination pass rates for O Level and A level French for an indication that much more than 3% of the population speaks French. Until recently, all major radio and tv stations in Mauritius were exclusively French, with minimal English or Kreol Morisyen. Also, I believe more than 90% of the population speaks Kreol. In fact, only new expats don't speak Kreol. Many expats learn Kreol if they live there long enough because it's very easy to pick up.

While we're at it, probably close to 40% of the population speaks Hindi. We've had Hindi radio and TV channels as far as I can remember. And theres probably 0.5% who speaks either Cantonese or Hakka.
