Fw: Ile Soleil Flip
Ile Soleil Flip, Flip, Flop, Pluck!
Has anyone seen Barry Faure ex MNA full time, ex diplomat, ex State House “go for this go for that” ( Goffer) , cum real estate developer promoter for Ile Soleil on SBC?
The issue is not Barry Faure of course. Let’s leave him alone. It is Ile Soleil, a very badly conjured up idea to turn a reclaimed island into some sort of mega real estate development. The whole project is done in a haphazard manner, with props of houses, hotels, condos presented on SBC. Let’s look at what makes Ile Soleil a dropping sun.
When the dredger was in Seychelles to dredge Ile Aurore another mega failure, and Ile Preservans, an island now propped up by Khalifa with roads, housing projects, schools, Ile Soleil was not in the plans. It was just something SPPF decided to do at the spur of the moment. That’s all.
At the time, there were complaints in Anse Aux Pin for space for fishermen, housing, and small industry. SPPF tossed a carrot to the people, to keep them on the string. The carrot was a promise of land in the form of Ile Soleil.
The South East Monsoon
When the South East Monsoon blows, this island gets slammed. It is right at the center of the South East winds for 6 months. The salt spray will destroy anything that is metal on this island, unless aluminum. That will cut the life span of anything in half, and the viability of any business will be limited at best to a 6 month year with 12 months of bills.
When It Rains, It Pours Red Blood
When it rains, the inner channel between Mahe turns red with siltation for days. It is simply horrendous to view and will devalue any project there.
Make Ile Soleil A Southern Terminal For International Airport
Instead of launching your big dart PL, to make Ile Soleil all things to all people, which will cause it to fail, why don’t you drop your idea and make it a Southern Terminal for a new airport?
This is what Mahe really needs to sustain higher growth, needed to repay PL- SPPF debts. A new airport is what Seychelles needs PL, get it, not new hotels, and new condos built out of sticks on an island in the flight path or very, very near to it.
When the Southern Terminal is built, move the Mahe International Airport support facilities there, like Fire engine, Rescue, Cargo, VIP and so on. You can even place parking there to free up more land for further airport expansion at the existing airport. Use that electric train you have been talking about for years now, to shuttle people from the parking lot to the airport arrival and departure facilities. If you are smart, you may even be able to go solar panel by then, since panels are going nano (small). Don’t let Dr. Rolf convince you to place wind mills on them, to make the trains look like planes. He is a dangerous man, careful.
Once you have done that, you will have more space to build a new airport that we need to expand our economy and even remain competitive in the region.
With Mauritius and La Reunion investing heavily in there international airport expansion projects Seychelles has become irrelevant to the airline industry in the region. Each have invested over 400 Million USDOLLARS in airport expansion. Each have over 30 flights a day now.
With Cramer Ball not buying a single luggage transfer vehicle or pulley or luggage dolley while registering a profit at Air Seychelles, the ground handling services at the airport, run by Air Seychelles is now falling apart, it looks like a scrap yard center on the tarmac. One visitor told me it looks like a flea market out there on the run way. I told the visitor, indeed, it is because a guy name “Balls” stuck it to us and he is now gone.
The airport is a total shame and disgrace, that merits unity in national objective, and leadership of a serious level by the government to rectify the problem that will soon be like a cancer to us. Focus on a serious plan PL, and you will have the support of all Seychellois for a new airport.
Turkish Airways Lands In Mauritius
By the way, remember all the talk by Alain St. Ange about Turkish Airways coming to Seychelles via Charles De Gaulle two years ago? Guess what folks? Turkish Airways never came to Seychelles. They went to Mauritius, and according to my intelligence person there, they just landed their inaugural flight to Mauritius, by passing Seychelles and Minister St. Ange, and Minister Joel Morgan (Transportation, Internal Affairs) some say: the Minister of Fear . Instead of preventing airlines from landing in Seychelles Mr. Morgan, why don’t you relocate your office to the Mont Fleuri cemetery to protect the grave sites of our family members? If Joel Morgan cannot apprehend the people that desecrated our grave sites, he should resign from the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Ministry of Transportation.
While St. Ange promised us tourist from Brazil Two (2) years ago, this year of the World Cup in Brazil, all we are getting is broiler chickens from Brazil.
Through Minister Sinon, the Minister, of failed Agriculture of mega proportions, the farmers of chickens in Seychelles, have asked me to thank Minister St. Ange for his tourism promotion efforts in Brazil.
All they got was boxes of chickens on the market………I am personally surprise that St. Ange has never asked that chickens from Brazil must spend minimal Three (3) nights at the Four Season Hotel, Baie Lazare.
That’s PL, the headless- brainless political animal most of the time….just like a chicken!
I did not mention James Michel, I said Pl is headless!
Ce la vie!
