Who designed the Independent Commission Against Corruption's website?

I was looking for the Prevention of Corruption Act for some research purposes. My first hit on Google.com returned me a 404 error on icac.mu. That is not beautiful, especially since it appears as the topmost result. It made me search further and I wondered who designed the Independent Commission Against Corruption's website.

Next I noticed that the website runs on WordPress 4.2.2 and Nginx. That's strange, why not on the Government sharepoint? Hmm... Made me think whether icac.mu could be on a shared server selling nail varnish.

I made a reverse IP domain check and found that icac.mu runs alongside al.mu. I visited the latter and it turned out to be the same as eruption.mu. Oh, wait, that came in the news recently regarding defaced websites.

In the footer of icac.mu, it's written "Powered by Eruption". Hmm... That line is usually "Powered by WordPress | Theme by Some Company". The WordPress theme used is Avada by Theme Forest but there is no credit mention, maybe an extended license was used.

ICAC acknowledged my email. I was assured that the feedback I provided will be taken into consideration. I thanked the officer for his reply.
