Seychelles Presidential Advisor - Conflict of Interest

Seychelles Presidential Advisor in conflict of interest with GEF funds - Accusations of corruption and power hunger.

It has been announced that the National Climate Change Strategy for Seychelles will be undertaken and that the Consultant is Dr. Rolph Payet. This Strategy is being financed by the GEF and managed by the UNDP.

The GEF is the Global Environment Facility and the main funder of environment projects in the world. Seychelles is benefiting from some 6 Million US Dollars of assistance most of it going to Government. In Seychelles the GEF projects are managed by UNDP (United Nations Development Fund).

But the man who decides how the money is spent is Dr. Rolph Payet. Payet is the GEF Operational Focal Point for Seychelles and as such is in charge of approvals for all GEF projects and has undertaken to manage decisions to do with GEF programs and projects in Seychelles. Payet is also Special Advisor to the President on environmental matters.

Therefore, this latest consultancy is a clear case of Conflict of Interest.

As Payet is also in charge of various climate related programs on behalf of the Government it is not proper that he is paid under a UNDP GEF consultancy to do work that he should be doing anyway.

Payet is undertaking many environmental consultancies in Seychelles but President Michel has stayed quiet about this very obvious abuse of power from his Special Advisor.

Payet as a civil servant does not pay any business tax for the many consultancies he undertakes.

I am a civil servant who is in fear of being victimized including losing my job if I reveal my name as Mr. Payet is a Special Advisor to the President and also is a Member of the Central Committee of the Party Lepep in power.

I certainly agree and support this cause and this even goes deeper and further. When he claimed that he also shares part of the global peace award he should remember that he is always the sole player who has attended all these high level conference while denying everyone else with real capability to this opportunity since early 1990s. If you run a race alone, you will always finish first and last! This is why you also won the young leaders award. No surprise at all! This is the guy who has stampede on everyone with brains all his life and has turned really red only to achieve is over ambitious goals. He is a real evil man in disguise. The clock is ticking …

I agree, but clock ticking for whom? We have an Opposition that cannot organise a trip to the piss hole, let alone be united!
