Christmas has come early for LDS/PL Regional Councilors

The nominated councilors by PL and LDS will receive 7500 rupees each per month and the chairperson will each get 10,000 rupees. There are 42 members in all with an additional 7 chairpersons. This will cost the taxpayers SCR385, 000 per month, which will add up to SCR4, 620,000 over twelve months. Many people are not happy about this situation, since, most of them are in fulltime employment and already earning big salaries.

A closer look at the people appointed will reveal that they are all practically activists of LDS and PL. It is fair to say, that the two political parties have used this opportunity to reward their loyalists. This is another crime against the people, by LDS and PL. It is also proof, if it was ever needed that these two parties are very similar in nature; they don’t practice what they preach. The LDS is showing its true colours, and that if they get power one day, nothing will change in a fundamental way the country is being ran today. They will only replace PL and i…

Access to Assomption Island military facilities for India still a reality With the full backing of LDS

We are all familiar with developments in regards to the joint military facilities with India on the Assomption Island. In March 2015, an agreement between Seychelles and India was signed here in Seychelles for the first time, during a state visit by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. This agreement never saw the light of day under President James Michel, even if Parti Lepep had an absolute majority in the National Assembly, up until September 2016. When LDS won the National Assembly elections by 15 seats to 10. The new political landscape meant that India had to cultivate the majority leader in the National Assembly for the ratification of the new agreement; signed in January 2018, between Seychelles and India, with Danny Faure as President.

The Honorable Leader of the Opposition, Wavel Ramkalawan, was subsequently on a trip to India, and he waslooked after in a way that he had never experienced before; he was treated like an Indian King (Maharaja). Judging by articles published in the Ind…

Seychelles Weekly falsely accused the CJ of corruption

Just as the contrived tribunal into alleged misbehaviour of the Chief Justice is about to start, the dirty tricks brotherhood is launching their Plan B attack on her.

The Chief Justice, Dr Mathilda Twomey has been accused of corruption by the Editor of Seychelles weekly.

The article sited that the Chief Justice bought a piece of land with SHDC in 1999 and then disposed of it for a profit months later.

At the time most returning graduates were able to apply for  loans from SHDC for the purchase of land to build their properties.

Mrs Twomey, who was simply a fresh young graduate, together with Patrick Bonnelame, Roger Gedeon and Charles Lucas were all entitled at the time as they were all returning graduates.

The truth of the matter is the Mrs Twomey's loan was SR 180,000 from SHDC.  In those days the properties was not transferred to these individuals until the loans were paid in full.

Mrs Twomey paid her loan in 1999 and the deeds were transferred on her name. She decided to leave Seyc…

Wavel Ramkalawan is playing too many games

The Honorable Leader of the Opposition is the greatest escape artist since Houdini, so he believes. This newspaper, and the majority of Seselwa are not at all fooled by his acts of treachery to this country and to the thousands of people who are supporting the LDS. Whenever, there is a scandalous political situation or a crisis, Wavel is never around to provide the public with an explanation and/or to answer questions from the press or to help find a solution. He is nowhere to be seen. It is obvious that he cannot operate under any kind of pressure.

Wavel (LOTO) chose to remain in Africa and not return to Seychelles to attend the 29th June, National Day celebrations, and no explanation was given by himself or his office, for his absence. This, is a big affront to this nation, when you think of the struggle that people had to go through to have our National Day reverted to the 29th June. It is alleged, that he had gone to Cape Verde after his official duties in mainland Africa, to chec…

Heroin, Corruption, Foreign Workers and Politicians will kill Sesel

The above is the dangerous mix that is killing this country. It is the Molotov cocktail that will burn down the Seychellois society as we know it. It was revealed in the National Assembly this week that there are 56 known financiers of hard drugs, 200 dealers and 300 black spots; peddling heroin and other dangerous substances at different locations in Seychelles. This information is more than is required to eliminate the drug epidemic. However, there are other factors at play that is making it extremely impossible to contain the impact of Heroin; it is corruption and politicians.

On Tuesday the Designated Minister was in Parliament to answer an urgent question posed by Hon. Charles De Commarmond. The Designated Minister had brought with her an entire delegation to the National Assembly, which included the Commissioner of Police. At one point in the debate the Honorable elected member for Cascade moved that the National Assembly should go in committee stage so that the Commissioner of …

The hypocrisy of drug trafficking Ramkalawan and Ferrari remain mute

Ramkalawan and Ferrari remain mute

The whole country was in a state of total shock once the urgent question put by the Leader of Government Business on drug trafficking has been disposed of this Tuesday in the National Assembly. Honorable Charles DeCommarmond wanted to know how much heroin has been intercepted since the New Commissioner of Police (Compol), previously the head of the National Drugs and Enforcement Agency, has taken over the country’s efforts to reduce the supply of hard drugs.

The Minister Responsible for the Police, McSuzy Mondon, was lost for words to establish some semblance of competence and good performance by Kishnan Labonte, the new Compol, whose only remarkable achievement thus far has been the reinstatement of several septuagenarians in the Police Force. The statistics did not add up and the nation was shocked to learn that the police knows of the existence of 256 narco-traffickers out of whom only 8 have been convicted. I…
