Enough is enough!
The ongoing debate on the various blogs and ‘Facebook’ recently has been about the political situation in Seychelles. With less than one year to go for the much anticipated presidential elections, the judge, jury and executioner (Seychellois electorate) will make a pronouncement on the performance of James Michel’s administration. As he seeks his third and final term in office, there is much talk about JAM being a lame duck candidate who is groping at straws and holding on to the horde of riches and prized assets that he has been mandated to protect at all costs. He has now roped in the bank accounts of his new found investor friends such as the Russians, the Chinese, the Indians, the South Africans and the beloved Arab Sheiks. He does not even care if he has to part with what is left of our patrimony just to maintain the life support for himself and his cliques. "Sell Baby Sell"!
In his bid to maintain the status quo (protecting ‘nou bann aki’), he has built various empires in all sectors of our country and society. The media empire has been bolstered by new laws such as NISA. The business community has been hijacked by his head honcho Ramadoss. The Big Boys Club of the Savy brothers, old SEYPEC Captain and ex-governor Sosis are lording over their kingdoms. Mooky is savoring his role as the guardian angel of Per Fondater’s Emerald investments as well as his own reserves. SIVA and Khalifa have carved up the country and have become our new colonial masters under James Michel’s shameful ‘Sell Baby Sell’ policy! The IMF gets jester treatment when they visit regularly and wax lyrical about the ‘resounding successes’ of our economic reforms. We are punch drunk on the daily doses of praise for the doings and dealings of our dear leader. The sudden invasion of foreigners and their bulging bank accounts is displacing the majority Seselwa into second class citizens. The greed & self-indulgence of ‘our’ government breeds corruption, moral decay and decadent vices. The young professionals are being hoodwinked into an Equator Institute to keep them running around in circles. Committees here, foundations there, institutes here, agencies and enquiry commissions there; while the youths are being used as the sacrificial lamb over the Jj Spirit political altar and Lepep is totally disillusioned and asking – where is our future? Where is our money?? Plus ςa change, plus c’est la meme chose!
It is now common knowledge both locally and overseas that James Michel and the SPPF / Parti Lepep have failed this country for over 30 years. This bunch of unscrupulous, audacious and arrogant minions has overstayed their welcome. They will try all the tricks in the book to cling on to power. The (shameful) ‘Man of the People’ has too many skeletons in his closet and lacks the vision to see us through this morass. ‘Sesel Pou Seselwa’ and the $ 2.5 billion that has been siphoned out of the country under his watch will forever haunt him.
The populace is fed up of this fiasco and blunders champion and his team of morons. They are saying, Enough is enough! Sesel Pou Seselwa! Koze Sesel! Nou pou repran nou pei?
