Where Is Seychelles Back firing Under James Michel
|James Michel showing his love for hats|
In my last article I laid a credible and solid base establishing that our leader, President James Michel, lacks adequate formal education to run a country well and as a leader for all his People.
This message is not intended to be funny, or rude. Today, we all know the value of education, in life business, politics, social life cannot be dismissed. More so, we all know the value of unity in a micro state, and the consequence of deep divisions.
Mr. Michel’s poor performance on the economy and political reforms, sex trafficking, money laundering speak for themselves. Seychelles cannot stay on the wrong track of history much longer.
Time To Wake Up
In Seychelles, we have taken this for granted for too long. It is time the Seychellois people wake up to deal with their sorrows, failures, and curse, because they are ready to place a non-educated person at the helm of the Nation, and run snails ( Bann koupa) in the National Assembly to slowly just raise their hands, to fill their pockets. (I am speaking figuratively of course, the MNA’s are not really snails, they are people, that may act like snails in dispensation of their duties to the People ).
The message of course, is a dead serious message: we need well educated people to move our country forward, last week, as James Michel showed us some old guns, pistols, from the good old days, and the recent State House Facebook page dressed in Blood Red, or Burgundy, only demonstrates a not educated man at the helm, grotesquely lacking in Savoir Vivre, and Savoir Faire.
Turn The Tide of Failure
Our failing economy year on year and the systematic displacement of Seychellois, day by day, under his rule, shows the systematic failure in leadership of one man up to now. We must turn the tide that vows to drown Seychellois under James Michel. For us to wake up one day, to the hope of a better Seychelles, we must all unite in thought and spirit, to turn this tide brought upon us by Mr. James Michel and the failed legacy of France Albert Rene.
Council of Ministers To Be Run Like A Corporation
Do you remember, on the occasion of a Cabinet reshuffle Three (3) years ago, Mr. Michel announced on SBC:” Cabinet will from now on, be run like a corporation (“Seychelles Incorporated” he called it) and we will review Cabinet performance on SBC quarterly basis”.
What happen? Quarterly reports, and recommendations were to be made, and the People were to be kept abreast, what happen, three years later, where are the Reports for “Seychelles Incorporated”?
Nothing. No Reports. Seychelles Incorporated only looks to be incorporated in the British Virgin Islands and Cyprus, with James Michel and Guy Adam as shareholders.
Same-o Same-o Three (3) years on. Everything happening in Seychelles has now to pass through Lise Bastienne’s “hanker-chief”. Afif a professional, is now giving us lessons on the Radio and starting a plane operation to compete with Air Seychelles. Back Fire!
There are no quarterly reports to the People, it was all nice words and cow stuff all along, in classic James Michel teleprompter style laid out in 28 size fonts.
Education Mr. President, teaches you one thing your words do not have: “discipline in action”, not just discipline in goose step parades and marches with guns for a day, that remind your people….one day, you may use them on your people,……….again!
In spite of Mr. Michel failing us on this grand promise, let us take a peep for ourselves.
President James Michel- take notes,then take some sensible action with the Council of Ministers to stop wasting our money, please, Sir, Msye Prezidan.
Look at the performance of the Ministers for a moment.
Minister of Employment- Alexander, she took SBC to Raffles to film the GM of a Five star hotel that has invested $450 Million in Seychelles, (James Michel allowed most of that money to go straight into Vijays account, and Seychellois benefit nothing from the project- Back Fire!), live, to say, hire more Seychellois before the Nation. Is this how the Minister of Employment deals with labor issues?
If so, tell Minister Alexander to come visit me, and film what I have to see to her and air it on SBC in full. Then we will see if she still keeps her job.
So far she has taken the labor problem in its collection and turned it into a labor crisis. Yet her salary has increased from SCR. 40,000.00 to Scr 63,000.00 by June 2014. Is this a joke or the games of a leader that lacks education? How can we increase ministerial salaries when our people are living a bare bones existence because you bankrupt the Nation, and we went under IMF Administration?
We are employing 14,000 GOP, responsible for SCR 1.2 Billion per year in capital flight from Seychelles. When Alexander took over, we employed 12,000 GOP, an increase of 2,000. Today, even truck drivers and bus drivers, are on GOP, not just mechanics. Mr. President, even without any formal education, you do not see this is a problem? You do not know how to solve this problem? Back Fire!
I do, but I will leave this for another article.
Sinon is a Golden Boy of PL- SPPF who has basically followed in line of his great mother Rita Sinon , and his great Father, Guy Sinon, as a Minister. Guy Sinon had to say “Sesel Pou Seselwa”, to get a job as Minister. Peter Sinon, his Son, says nothing practically, aside from taking farmers by the hand and sending them on a circus merry go round until farming in Seychelles has practically shut down.
His efforts at making farming a success has been just the opposite, because in farming, talk is cheap, yet PL sent a talker chatter box to the farmers, relying on the legacy of his mother and father, to keep their attention.
Where is the accountability Mr. President? Or are you allowing Peter Sinon, with Johnnie Walker run circles around you on Ministry of Agriculture Budget? You know what they say Mr. President: you get what you pay for in corporate business. You overpay a Minister, he will over consume Johnnie Walker and yes, walk circles around you.
At the end of the day under James Michel, we are importing fruits and vegetables from Sri Lanka, from 0 kilo to 20 tons a month, which will wipe out every farmer, and we are now importing chickens from Brazil, which will wipe out every chicken farmer, even those that fly the SPPF flag on their chicken coop to get a little concession from you, which does not seem to help.
Tip Mr. President: since Peter Sinon made planting fruits and vegetables not viable, did you know many farmers are now planting cannabis to replace their profits that Sri Lanka takes from them? Give Scully some local advise: to plant cannabis, you need fertilizer, follow the cows and arrest them.
The People lose out when the leadership is out smarted.
We had oil tankers, were promised/guaranteed to be a new sector of the economy. After Ephelia Hotel, Port Glaud opened, soft lease in hand with 100 Million Euro Loan plus from MCB backed by Government of Seychelles owned land, Guy Adam resigned, the tankers went bust, and we do not have a single cargo ship to run the Indian Ocean routes, so cargo rates go up for Seychelles, or a single purse seiner to multiply the net benefit to Seychelles per ton of Blue Gold (Tuna) as you call it.
So…..Someone else makes a huge profit off our Blue Gold. Sounds like a bad movie Mr. President, indeed, it is. You are the lead actor in it all, from what I can see.
How did you drag Seychelles so far off course from where she had to be today, Mr. President?
Remember your own words in 2006: “Seselwa Tenir….Pa…Large’, Nou Pre Pou Arrive Kot Nou Destin”. That was on the implied promise of oil being discovered the following week and Blue Economy being exploited in a smart manner. What happen, Sir Mr. President, what happen?
Mr. President, just look back today, and see what you dragged Seychellois through since those fine words in 2006. All because your Ministers who you tasked with serious work, out smarted you.
Minister Sinon, Mr. Rondolf Payet (EX SFA Boss), Dr./Minister/Sir/ Mr. Rolf Payet ( Brother of EX SFA BOSS), yourself, your whole gang has failed fisheries so miserably, that today, Fishermen are not fishing, they are trafficking drugs on the high seas and being chased down by hired mercenary Sergeant Ex Guardia Reserve Part Time Nail Scully. You need body guards to attend to you when you go speak to the fishermen. Another Back Fire of mega proportions, Mr. President.
How did it get so bad under your leadership?
The People lose out when Leadership is outsmarted, it is as simple as that, is it not.. Sir, Mr. President?
