The Seychelles President's Cabinet Reshuffle a major disappointment
The famous 'official' montage picture of unity in the SPUP/SPPF/Parti Lepe camp. Michel between a rock and a hard place! 

Extract from Seychelles Weekly - 10/06/10
Albert Rene Wins Again!!
President James Michel has clearly failed in his desire to place his favourite son, Joel Morgan, anywhere near the presidency, now and anytime in the future. Judging by the changes it is clear that Rene is firmly back in control of the directions the party and the country should take and is still winning - hands down - all the battles being fought at ‘Maison Du Peuple’. The only little victory that can be associated to President Michel comes in the form of Jean Paul Adam being appointed Minister for Foreign Affairs filling his dad’s boots, Ralph Adam, who occupied that position in the eighties. Joel Morgan is now clearly the garbage-man of the cabinet, the man charged to dealing and cleaning all the rotten rubbish. The only new face in that setup is Peter Sinon, the newly appointed Minister for Investment, Industry and Natural Resources. Peter Sinon has been dragged in by Danny Faure the new vice-president and president in waiting. Both Jean Paul Adam and Erna Athanasius, the new Minister for Health, are not new faces, they have always been there simmering just below the surface waiting for their turn.
This is a looming disaster for President Michel; his days are now fast numbered. Rene has seized back power with the appointment of both Danny Faure and Vincent Meriton, in and around the presidency. If Michel wins the next election, which many are saying he will not, pressure will be applied from the Rene camp for him to hand over power soon after to Danny Faure. This is what Rene wants more than anything before his departure; protection for the cronies and nepotism, which this country have become stuck in since the 5th June, 1977. Rene would have achieved his aim of protecting the few who have stolen from this country and caused the bankruptcy of the local economy from beyond the grave. Michel who had wrestled total power temporarily between 2008 and 2010 from Rene is now back where he started in 2004; by all accounts he is now a lame duck president again, just waiting to make his exit. Observers are saying that Michel is being eaten up from the inside, but there is nothing that he can do, Rene still holds the Ace. The future of the country is now at the edge of a precipice, Michel will turn 67 on 16th August this year, he is clearly getting old quickly judging by what we see on television everyday; his energy is sapping faster given that his confidence has been dealt a killer blow by not getting his wish to appoint his chosen vice-presidential candidate. This cannot be good for the man running the daily affairs of the Nation. Michel must seriously consider making his exit sooner rather than later (at the next election) to allow for a younger man with time and energy on his side to takeover. This responsibility must be given to the electorate as stipulated by the Constitution. The electorate must decide the fate of this country at the ballot box, not Rene or anyone else at Maison Du Peuple; democracy is being trampled on by the ruling party and it is totally unacceptable that the presidency will be handed over on a platter to Danny Faure in the next two or three years. This is why Michel must be voted out at the next election to prevent Danny Faure from becoming President through undemocratic means.

It is now very clear if it wasn’t before, that the SPUP/SPPF/ PARTI LEPEP has no good intention or plan to work for the people of this country, but only for themselves. They are a totally dishonest bunch bent on maintaining power at all cost, even if it means putting a nonstarter at State House. The future of this country is now doomed unless the electorate can pull it out of the fire...
A CANDID ASSESSMENT
Michel is now between a rock and a hard place! He is squashed between the two Faure brothers and is practically a hostage in State House - Ti Frans ki ek ou! He has passed on the Foreign Affairs portfolio to his bevoted SOS but has acquired the Tourism portfolio to ensure that his supplementary budget of Sr. 1.1 million (for six months) gets him to the capitals of the world. He will not give up on the Internal affairs portfolio as he does not want to be stabbed in the back and will not relinquish Information either, so that he can still exert TOTAL contol on the media to keep prepping up his tarnishing image.
SPPF/Parti Lepep is really scraping the barrel for some decent grey matter to take on those ministerial posts. The blunder team gets to do another round of musical chairs for the extra-time period and will keep on scoring a handful of own goals. The substitutes are already exhausted and carry a lot of heavy baggage. Michel and his team have totally lost the plot.
He has broken with tradition to reward those that have been faithful to him. Jean Paul Adam, a young kid who is still wet behind the ears is now the blue eyed boy that heads the image of the country abroad.
Peter Sinon has been duly rewarded for defending the case of the country's bankruptcy and softening the blow at the ADB but he could have done a better job at Foreign Affairs. At least he has some ambassadorial experience and has a background in economics. 
 Perhaps the only sound choice is Erna Athanasius who has a grip of the ministry she will be heading. But she needs to tread with extra care as it is a self eject seat that has claimed a lot of casualties (who have ironically been shifted to other musical chairs!).
The combination of portfolios to load the incumbent ministers is a sign of desperation! In typical SPPF/Lepep fashion, the more you make a monkey of yourself and your country the more you are rewarded. There is no doubt that Belmont and Lloyd are happy to be off the bandwagon whose wheels have fallen off. En kales kase parey nou dir an kreol!

I am not sure who wrote this 'candid analysis' if its Gill or somebody else. But this analysis is flawed in a number of areas.

1. Whislt there is differences between Rene and Michel, difference in style of leadership or preferences, i do not for one second agree that there is a tug of war between those 2. All and every major decision is veted by Rene. Soemtimes Rene allows some personal preferences of Michel because those preferences have no consequence on the wider scheme of things. IMF is in Seychelles because Rene (pushed by the economic situation) agreed to it. This cabinet of ministers has the approval and stamp of Rene.

2. On the issue of own goals- the writer says this is a series of own goals scored by JAM/SPPF/PL. If we were to take this analysis seriously that would mean that the SPPF/PL would be losing the next elections. There is absolutely no indication that this is especially when we account for the state of the opposition.

3. I believe if the Opposition is to be taken seriously they should be more careful in their analysis of the situation- stop these fairytales. The Opposition has been predicting the fall of the SPPF/PL since 1977. We are now 30 years later, SPPF/PL has re invented itself, so much that they now take the piss at the Opposition for being communist (ref to artcile in the People).

4. The Opposition is an Opposition of reaction to every move the SPPF/PL does. No initiative comes from it (except when it comes to their psesonal interests).

5. Sorry to say but the Opposition as it stands now, is like blind men leading blind men.

This article reminds me of a Man called Monsieur Renard who coined the phrase "sa bann grapes i sour anyway" because as hard as he tried to get to the grapes on the high grapevine, he failed time and again and again and again.

With tail between his legs, he walked off in disgust and disappointment and when the Corbo asked him "ki deal Bro?", Renardo the Fox answered "those grapes are sour anyway."

What JAM is saying to FAR and FOR is "in any tight situation such as between a rock and a hard place, all I have to do is activate my IPhone GPS and voila!!! TIKLO

Reply to Vox-

I did not write it, it is from Weekly an extract as a show of an effort to unite the opposition and cooperate with each other.

We are waiting for the HA,HA HA SNP Man to do the same.

They raise their salaries 38% and take a 75% pension and say HA,HA,HA.

Now whatever Michel has done, he has done it under orders from FAR.

Read the next State House Anytime and we will all know whats going on at State House.

Erna Athanasius had been for several years assessing the former Minister of Health. A Cuban trained general practitioner, who later did a specialization in pediatrics in USA, had been working hard in the background to climb to the post of minister of health. The thing is that she has no experience what so ever in Health Administration & management. Being a specialist, does not necessarily make you a good health administrator.
Same goes for Jude Gedeon, a GP who graduated in Zimbabwe and was promoted to the post of Principal Secretary when he has no idea whatsoever how to run the most chaotic ministry in our home land, where the standards of health has suffered a serious deterioration since 1995.

Qualified Seychellois doctors have been forced to leave their homeland due to poor recognition of their dedication towards their people. Foreign doctors are still being paid fat salaries compared to our Seselwa Rasin.

Competent specialists in the field of Ophthalmology (Dr, Bonnelame); Nephrology (Dr, Wong) , Consultant pediatrician (Dr. Govinden) just to name a few, tried to introduce significant changes in MOH, but since they were not politically affiliated to SPPF / PL; they were simply put aside and forced to leave the ministry. Dr. Govinden is still there trying to survive and runs the only department in Victoria hospital which has a high level of medical assistance.

The primary health care system was put under the responsibility of Dr. Herminie and the result of it still remains today. Poor quality assistance and paracetamol for everything.

How can this ministry progress if we have assessors’ like Ramados who cannot even distinguish between if a lady is pregnant or if she has a heart failure??? My god this ministry is in real deep shit.

Almost all the equipment at MOH is either outdated and should be put in a museum or have broken down, and once fixed they turn out to be a danger towards our people.
Many Doctors recruited from India in the past by Dr. Shamlaye and Dr. Ramados, turned out not to nurses who had been working in ghetto hospitals in India.

We all remember one Indian who was recruited as a surgeon, operated many of our Seselwa Rasin and 3 months later they realized that he was not even a doctor but someone who had been working in a surgical theatre in India and was given 72 hours to leave the country.

The chaos in the ministry of health goes on and I will keep on commenting.

If you get sick in Seychelles you will be better of if you go to a BONOM DIBOUIS.

Seychelles does not deserve this.
A true Seselwa

Mr. Gill, can you work out how much Marie-Pierre Lloyd will now make in her so-called pension now that she has been retired as a Minister?

And Belmont will probably get the largest pension ever seen in the history of Seychelles, given he was the Minister of Everything the past 30 plus years. Let the people of SEychelles know those numbers when you get it as I am sure it will be astronomical and could probably bankrupt us even more.

Also, I hear that Marie-Louise Potter is furious that she was passed over as a Minister. Serves her right for sucking James and Albert's limp c***s.

Athanasius is as qualified to run the Ministry of Health as Michel is qualified to write a book!!!!!!!!!! What a joke and a disaster this will be for the health of the Seychellois people!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

For Michel will not be a problem to replace Potter has health Minister.PP have done this for years take one they and put they and think it will be better but it get worse and for them just to sleep on the jobs nowing nothing and doing nothing and dont no how to do it.

Ministry of Health is sick
Like it or not these are the facts. We do not have the following:
1. A cardiology unit, not even a cardiologist, nor a cardiac surgeon. No facilities to perform a cardiac catheterism in cases with heart attacks.
2. A pneumologist which is a lung specialist.
3. A neurologist, nor a neurological surgeon. The only brain operation which is performed in Seychelles is done by general surgeons and it is called bur holes (drilling your skull to evacuate a blood clot).
4. Actually there is no eye specialist.
5. No ENT surgeon (make sure you do not have problems with your tonsils or vocal cords or a cancer of the mouth.
6. No maxillofacial surgeon (your face is in deep shit if you suffer a fracture).
7. No qualified dermatologist for skin problems.
8. No nephrologists (make sure your kidneys do not get screwed up).
9. No pediatric surgeon (poor kids)
10. Our laboratory at Victoria hospital performs only basic tests. Do not try to ask for a sophiscated one in order to make a diagnosis. They will simply tell you they need to send it to Mauritius and will be back in 7 days time provided that MOH has paid there outdated bills.
11. All the diagnostic equipment at Victoria Hospital X-Ray department should be sent to a museum. They have been there for the last 35 years. It is more expensive to maintain them than buy new ones.
12. There are more or less only 40 drugs available at our central pharmacy and many people question if they are effective since we buy it on the streets in India.
13. Our Emergency unit is a complete chaos. Our ambulances are not equipped with emergency supplies and qualified personal. We do not have paramedics. We cannot transport critically ill patients with oxygen only.
14. Our medical archives where our medical history (which is a very valuable document) is completely outdated back to the days of colonialism. These documents are not available at night, so make sure you get ill during the day.
15. If you want a healthy nation you need to implement Preventive Medicine. Most doctors in primary health care have their lists overcrowded and too busy giving out sick leave to all these Baka drinkers. Preventive medicine does not exist. Do you remember the Chicunkuya, MSR bacteria in operating theaters, just to mention a few???? Did you know that statistically (if this exists at MOH) Seychelles, that we have the highest percentage of people on sick leave in the world?
16. Why do you think we have so many Seychellois doctors in politics??? Their salaries are very poor. Medicine is one of the longest carries there is and it takes one almost 11 years to become a specialist and at the end of the month you receive only SR10,000. So the only way to survive is to get involved in politics.
17. Why do you think that our qualified nurses are leaving us?? They are paid peanuts.
18. We have a chronic shortage of medical supplies and equipment and MOH has several times even run out of paracetamol.

This is what I call a Ministry in chaos

Will continue……this is just the pick of the iceberg

Reply to Twister SNP-Man

I am glad SNP has sent its best man to reply to us on STAR.

Now regarding the Health Ministry and your assertion that I can snap my fingers to make it better in one day.

You are dreaming again, like you dream you can divide the opposition and win elections.

You are dreaming again, like you dream that you can actually get to heaven by supporting a corrpted preist millionaire in his endeavors to live comfortably off the people of Seychelles, with the help of SPPF-PP in exchange for faking an opposition.

Wake up from your slumber SNP Twisted Man.

What about the 'tron nenen' know as the Hospital mortuary which has been standing for donkey years. While the National Assembly gets knew multimillion rupees building which is an institution in its infancy, while many new district communittee centres are built across the country; our old outdated, appalling & delapidated mortuary continues to function by swithcing bodies between the chillers & the floor. Bodies have to take turn in the chilers because there's not enough chillers or they're consistently breaking down. Is that a way to give our last respect to our fellow citizens.

If these are PL priorities, god forbid if there's a major disaster of some sort!

Now, the big question is not only what SPP have strategised to try and win the coming election again, but what is the opposition strategy to defeat the SPP!

It is clear that not a single recommendation of the last election has been implemented and we are diving in the next election with nothing much innovative apart from the efforts of Mr. Gill and close partners.

The opposition look like they have sold their souls for a secure future for themselves rather than try and rattle their MASTERS, Le Pep. Again another week goes by without SNP producing a paper, why, because they simply have nothing to say.

Anonymous said...

That is the reason and role of SNP in the oppostion to block any change by acting as a FAKE OPPOSITION.That is its purpose to make sure PP stays in power by all.
RAM will continue flip-floping until his own supporters force him out.Following the evil is much easy as following God'S way,it is just too demanding for a weak soul like that of RAM .
Ram and his SNP party must be dealt with as PP since they have the same zeal in aborting and delaying the process of democracy.
