Seychelles Presidential Elections - Use of Government Vehicles & Illegal Voters

James Michel and his Parti Lepep have vowed not to do anything illegal during the election campaign.  But as usual, Michel is a liar and can never be trusted.  We offer photographic evidence below of two clear signs of abuse by the ruling party.

Firstly, there is water restriction in the country and Michel says that we have no water to put in dams and that we have no money to build a new dam.  And yet, he finds the funds for large political rallies while asking his supporters to use Government vehicles to carry out his campaign.  Below is a picture of a PUC truck at the rally and there are many more on Facebook. This is not an isolated incident, but quite normal throughout the Parti Lepep campaign. They will stop at nothing to win the elections illegally.

PUC TRUCK AT PARTI LEPEP RALLY - SUNDAY 15th MAY 2011

But Michel does not stop just at the illegal use of Government vehicles and intimidation of Government workers.  He has also summoned all overseas ambassadors, their wives, children and all immediate members of their families back to Seychelles so that they can vote illegally. All paid for of course by the Seychelles taxpayers.  Ronny Jumeau from New York, Vivienne Focktave and Claude Morel from Europe, Dick Esparon from India and the list goes on and on.

As everyone is well aware, Seychellois nationals who reside overseas are not allowed to vote.  This was a ploy by Albert Rene and James Michel to prevent legal Seychellois nationals from flying into Seychelles to vote.  Rene and Michel knew that they would lose an election if Seychellois living abroad could exercise their legal voting rights, as most left Seychelles after the coup d'etat to go into exile due to intimidation by Rene, Michel and their Tanzanian AK-47 toting goons. Many Seychellois lost their properties due to illegal Government land acquisition (a la Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe) and even lsot their right to return to their homeland.  

But in the meantime, while legal Seychellois are denied their right to vote, Albert Rene and James Michel have illegally sold thousands of passports to foreigners, regardless of their origin or despite their sordid criminal records.  The passport selling scheme under the Parti Lepep has made millions not for the State coffers, but for the pockets of corrupt Party Lepep officials.  Some even get their passports overnight, depending on the amount of US Dollars that exchange hands illegally. Others like Indian billionaire Sivasankaran "Siva" who became an overnight Seychellois was even doted with an "ambassadorship" by James Michel, when this post had already been promised to ex-President James Mancham. Shameful indeed.  

It is clear that James Michel and his party are not respecting the rules of the election and that this Presidential Election which starts today is wrought in corruption and illegal activities. Our only hope is that the people of Seychelles vote Michel and his bunch of Parti Lepep crooks and cronies out of power before midnight Saturday May 21st.

Wonder what the two top management of PUC who are both staunch Party Lepep members have to say about this? Where is Robert Stravens and Ben Choppy? Too busy campaigning in their own Government vehicles?

Michel is a disgrace and should be voted out this weekend. I have had enough of that lying corrupt thief.

Yes, they can fly to Seychelles using the people's money to come and vote for Michel while my brother who is studying in England cannot vote and he is still waiting for his allowance which was due 2 months ago. Please people, vote Michel out so that we can have a better country.

There is nothing in this election that has not happened in previous ones since the return of multi-party politics. The much talked about "international community" knows it and the election observers present and absent know it. Do they care or care sufficiently to exert pressure on Michel and his government? Does not look like it. As they visit the various opposition party HQs and hear all the same complaints, the observers will note them, include them in their report go ahead and declare the election "Free and Fair" and then disappear into their bush or island or wherever they came from until next time. Our hope, is for Seychellois, ALL seychellois to rise and say enough is enough. will this happen? Not in this lifetime.

The ban on use of government vehicles applies on election days only.

These are reasons why we should vote them out and vote SNP to stop these abuses.

Philip Legall the frenchman appointed Seychelles ambassador in China has also been flown over, at tax payers' expence, to vote. In france he would have never been even a clerk in the ministry of Foreign Affairs, so he's got to defend his bol diri. Pat Pillay, who is itting on his old bum in London and doing fuck all for Seychelles is back. The second time in a month. He has to protect the luxury holiday we pay for him in London.His maid, brought over from Seychelles, is paid for by us as are the his chauffeur, PA, secretary and their respective families. For all the money that we pay what does seychelles get out of this embassy?? And Claude Morel tellsus that seychelles diplomacy is better than it's ever been??? I wonder how it was when it was at its worse?????!!!!!

President Ramkalawan will know how to deal with these ambassadors who seem to be better at doing politics than their jobs as our representative overseas. As he has said that he wants to make use of everyone's talents to the full, I'm sure he'll find a place for each one of these jokers whom James Michel has appointed as ambassadors and appoint in their place credible individuals who will stay away from politics and discharge their duties efficiently.

Ronny Jumeau paints a pathetic and ridiculous picture in his Che Guevara hat. "His Excellency"? Please give me a break! I'm glad that in just two short days seychellois will vote these clowns out forever.

Have you all noticed how suddenly, out of the blue- PUC has a plan to bring water to La Gogue dam from Mare Cochon? In a democracy with independent journalists, the management of PUC would have been asked when they hatched this plan, why was it not announced before, etc. But unfortunately, as usual, SBC just reads whatever crap they've been given. "Investigative" journalism is a word alien to them.

These are little glitch that that we manage to see. The real sham is going down long before the official campaign for the election. Parti Lepep started their campaign with a book launch, a carnival and the Expo 2020. The question is: why do Seychellois people keep falling for those guys deception? Don’t tell me there is no Seychellois with the qualification or standing to stand as the ambassador of Seychelles in China. I pray that they are voted out by a majority of Seychellois. Parti Lepep refused to register MSR because its manifesto would have put Seychellois on our side. God bless all freedom loving Seychellois!! Sesel Pou Seselwa!!

SNP has the answer to this problem. It promises to "retir politik dan travay".

If seeing your highly paid ambassadors and high commissioners desert their workplace to campaign for Michel and attend PL rallies disgust you, put an end to it by voting SNP. A tick in the first box on your ballot paper will change all of that.

This article really add weight to Mr Carson article on the state of democracy in the Seychelles. There will be no democracy under SPPF rule. According to a political analyst Mr Francis Fukuyama who was on hardtalk BBC today. I quote ONE OF THE WAY TO REMOVE POWERFUL AND CORRUPT POLITICAL ELITE IS THE USE OF FORCE OR PEACEFUL DEMONSTRATION. I think if we do not make it on monday . This will be the only option for Seychelloise since democratic institutions to enable people to exercise their rights are non existent in the Seychelles. Let us not be fool by people coming to Seychelles on holiday to tell us that the election was free and fair. We should start mobilising our people for the Indian Ocean spring

Has anyone read the article "Voices - Today's topic" on page 12 of the Today newspaper?

The article is excellent and discusses the need to change our constitution to allow overseas Seychellois their right to vote and also the need to have an Electoral Commission with several people rather than a single Electoral Commissioner (i.e. Hendrick Gappy).

It is refreshing to see a newspaper publishing such articles as compared to the State House mouthpieces called the Nation and the SBC-TV.

Let us all vote for change and for a free and independent media. The days of state controlled communist media is over.

This is only the shallow layer of the tactics.

They have also paid for all known SPP-based students studying overseas to return and the end is endless. SPP does dirty politics 370 degrees and then we all have to suffer for their corruption and greed for power.

It shows that SNP must get its voters out on 21 May. Those who can must help others with transport to get to and from polling stations.

It is time to vote the reds out!! When Chris Gill and the founding members of STAR were advocating that they were commies disguised as capitalists everyone took them for fools.

The tide is turning folks. You can see clearly that these 'supporters' were dragged pou fer ta bel! But they will get their biggest shock come 21st.

They are the most manupulative system as Seychelles is small and everyone knows everbody else. And they have used all this to their advantage. Look at their pathetic PPBS, they had to drag people to try and give them credibility.

The Seychellois people are not stupid. They have seen what is happening around the world and they will also vote for a change. Lepep will be in the garbage bin by Sat and you will all see the mass of people that will be out to celebrate - their own people, those that they have used and abused to zwe rol etc...

But the new government that will form will have to put a final end to this era of division. We will shine as a people in our unity and our diversity and not under a system where you are 'ek nou, pa ek nou'!

Long live Seychelles under a new vision and leadership. Let's heal. bring back those that have been exiled for so many years. Extend a hand to those that were used and abused by the system solely to get by.

The healing process starts after 21st May and all Seychellois from all walks of life will rejoice. Even those who have had to tow the line as civil servants to make the country function will be eleated. Even those who have been weak and been preyed on... there will be a place for everyone that we will all (the silent majority) create after 21st May - le jour de la deliverence....

Seychellois,we are looking and fighting for one single thing, that is to vote out pati lepep to govern Seychelles at least the coming 5 years and we all know that when it is out it will not exist or come back in power except by a revolution, we all can reason and know exactly in the opposition that SNP can make it to state house if we do not keep grudge on Wavel and condemn all the Seychellois and the Seychelles under the Lepep government for five more years.

when we want to preach and practice democracy we must have government who can put in practice all that goes with democracy now we are only using the word.

Give SNP a vote and then we will put in action all that we have dream t of,

If they cannot deliver we will have the right to put them out.

God bless all the Seychellois who want a change in i this country

Seychellois nationals who live and work overseas are not allowed to vote. This is how thousands of Seychellois overseas have been denied the right to vote. The same thing should apply to diplomats and Seychellois based overseas -- their right to vote is questionable.

In the past, an exemption has been made for students on the basis that they are broad on a temporary basis only.

After the ambassadors, I'm not surprised that they're flying the STB staff - with the full blessing of our dear Alain St Ange. There won't be any voting at state house. They'll be voting in the normal polling stations. Michel is desperate. He has to pull out all the stops. But BEWARE if he tries to steal our victory again.

Thre's a lot of frustrations and anger around. Let's channel it all in giving Wavel a resounding victory on Saturday. He will then have 5 years - AND ONLY 5 YEARS to prove to us that he can do things differently. Otherwise, we'll vote him out or march on state house and drag him out.

The more we vote against the govt and for any opposition, the more the total number of voters will be, and the more Parti Fes will need to get to be more than 50%. Then we can go to a second round!!!! Simple maths!

The AFP news agency report was written by their local correspondent either in Seychelles or in Nairobi. If it is the guy who works for Nation, then he is a stringer. They are tipping Michel to win. But the headline that goes with the report is usually written by an AFP editor, hence why AFP now has a more sensational headline about vote buying marring the elections.

There are numerous opposition candidates in this election because Ramkalawan and SNP created this situation. No one else is responsible for this but them.

If Boulle wants to run, he has every right to. He calls for a unity government made up of all parties, but he has no party himself.

If Volcere wants to run, he has every right to. He has taken over DP and made it NDP after the SNP broke a political opposition alliance single handedly and wished the death of a party upon DP. I personally do not see Ramkalawan offering much more then Volcere does. Both come from schools of the same kind of thinking. The difference is Volcere is hungry and Ramkalawan has had his fill. So Volcere has a fight in him. Credit to him.

Dhanjee, an independent opposition candidate, is also fighting in court. He deserves credit and should not be sidelined. He runs because of SNP's politics of division as well, though Gappy has removed him on the ballot paper.

MSR- Do not forget, MSR is not registered and we have been denied the right to participate. If we were in the game, it would be a different situation.

So do not blame me for the divisions Ramkalawan created over the last 5 years.

If there is a second round, the opposition should unite and deal PL a blow.

At this point, with all this division in opposition rank and file, and no reason to vote for any one solid candidate, that can carry the day, I will stay home, and BOYCOTT!

It is the only way I can preserve my dignity as a person, under this corrupted regime, that the opposition under SNP has given it, credibility every step of the way. How many articles have we read by Ramkalawan about our wonderful DEMOCRACY?

I wonder what horse this guy came to town on from St. Louis!

The opposition parties have chosen to repeat the same mistake as in previous elections and it seems to me that they have not and would never learned from the past mistakes.They have decided to participate in an election which they knew well in advance that the result of the game is known before even the game kicked off and due to the massive manipulation there chances of winning is ZERO.They were adivsed by many to UNITE the opposition to give them at least a chance of shaking Pp at the ballot box but becuase of personal interests they decided to go it alone thus digging the own grave.They have publicly been asking for defeat by Pp and have chosen the stragety that will make it happen . By particiapting in this faked election which result is a foregone conclusion they doing nothing more than helping to legitimate Pp dictatorship.

We should understand by now that an authoritarian regime does not holds election that will dispose him but rather it uses election as a means to legitimate and consolidate aritificailly it grab on power.

Now that defeat seems knocking at the opposition doors they will have another chance just after Gappy anounce the faked results to boycott the results and call on their supporters to take into the streets in order to ask Pp for their stolen votes back or face popular uprising.We are no ready to allow ourselves to be slaved by any longer bya gang of crooks for another thirty years.

If Boulle has the best programme, which I do not doubt, why did he not do a party?

As an independent candidate, he hurts his effort.

What happens if he dies?

Niaken takes over. But Naiken and Boulle are opposites in nature and character, we have seen that on PPB.

This is the most half baked serious effort I have ever seen.

No one like the politics of parties. But it is a necessary evil and risk that one must take.

Afterall, not everyone is as intelligent as the candidate. Even some competing candidates would not qualify to shine Mr. Boulle's shoes, since they never held a real job.

Guys and girls,

Since foreign living Seychellois, or Seychellois that do not live in Seychelles on a permanent basis are not allowed to vote but yet that French bastard Lagall, our embassadors + + + are all being flown in to cast their vote, then why not gather evidence on this and take the case to court so the election can be made VOID. Ally yourselves with Dhanjee who already has a case going and file an additional one so we can once and for all get rid of both PL and that conman SOB Gappy.

Becuase he is free to do what he wants namely be an independent candiddate or be the leader of a party,both possible is legitimate to him he has opted as a free man what opt he finds best for him.

What happens if he dies?Well there is procudures in our law of how to deal with such inventualities should that happen the same wayi guess if a president will pass away while still in office.

Mr Boulle has the most convincing programms and others with their parties did not do better than him ,they could have united the opposition and have Boulle(though without a party) as only candidate to represent the oppostion and RAM or Volcere as running mate.Possibilities are many it all depends of how the opposition conduct themselves to each other and their willingness and seriousness to find common ground.

They should put the country^s interest before self-interests than only they will be able to achieve their objectives.

Opposition defeat will come not becuase pp has all the resources at it decks but also of how the opposition comport themselves,their comportment plays a big role in determing their victory or defeat.

Well yes, I'd like to congratulate anyone for marketing the two cases and any other of the sort where the PL and their henchmen(like Gappy) are practising their own interpretation of our constitution. The interesting thing about the Dhanjee case however is that few seem to give a toss about it, let alone even bother to mention it.

As we speak the world press is writing that the elections in Seychelles are in full swing and that the PL/SNP are accusing eachother of fraud, but not a single word about the Dhanjee case that is ongoing. Worst of all is that today's Nation hasn't mentioned a single word about it(no surprise).

I urge everyone on this blog to also read Today for Jose Souyave's letter to the Today editor on page 12. This is a brilliant letter and he is asking the question why he is not allowed to vote. Here we have Malbars from Mauritius and India now voting for Michel and yet our own Seychellois citizens are denied their legal rights.

It is definitely a time for action if these red bastards steal the elections again with their foreign voters and illegal passport holders. We need to take our country back.

SNP Collaborator-

I do not shut up for Michel and PL, so do not expect me to shut up or shut down for Ramkalawan SNP, the official puppy dog opposition of PL.

Ramkalawan and Farrari divided the opposition themselves.

Today, Boulle runs, Volcere runs, Dhanjee tries to run, MSR is blocked from running.

The opposition is divided, don't you get it?

If you do not get it, you will soon enough.

Stop wasting our time.

Change cannot come from sleeping for 5 years from a sleeping SNP and Ramkalawan. I have nothing against Ramkalawan. I think he is a fine fellow, but he has not delivered unity, and with that, he cannot deliver victory.

Don't blame me for your woes.

Boycott in the first round is the only option of dignity for MSR and its supporters. We will not be used by either PL or SNP.

Personally I do not see anyone at this moment to removing PPL in power / We need someone fresh and stronger and one who is not corrupt to help bring real democracy in our country. I would abstain from voting, but I give my full support to Volcere for trying and his hard work all over these years.

The fear of losing or belief that you will lose is not good enough reason not to engage in the democratic process. Election time has given access to opposition to SBC and this will help the democratisation process. The alternative is a popular uprising -- dream on. There will be more people demonstrating for PL on the streets than against it for the foreseeable future.

Reply to "Gill is all over the place on voting"-

You present a very simplistic perception of our complicated reality.

Perhaps it is because you seek simplicity in your confusion.

I represent a party that is banned in the elections and banned from existing in Seychelles. Only a higher court can undo this bad decision. This will take me as leader of the MSR to the Court of Appeals, and to the UN International Human Rights Court.

I have called for a BOYCOTT to expose this regime's sham and rigging of elections. But for opposition participation, the job would have been done by now.

If everyone is as strong as me, we will take down PL by boycott because the elections are rigged and they are a SHAM. Evidence of that is everywhere.

No election can be credible wherein the voters do not vote. No government can rule, without voter credibility.

You propose Ramkalawan as an option. That is a joke at this point. Ramkalawan is the key person who has divided the opposition and he does not deserve a vote from any one except Jean Francois Ferrari.

While I and MSR BOYCOTT we are continuing actively to expose PL.

I have been in contact with a number of international reporters covering the Seychelles rigged elections, giving them key insight into the direction the country is taking. We feed them with digital facts and articles written in the past on the subjects we focus on to off set the PR work of Alain St. Ange, for Michel. He seems to have gone beyond tourism and is now the Secretary of State.

I have met with Commonwealth, MSR has met with SADC and other groups during the election and we have exposed the sham.

In court, we have advised Dhanjee and Chadstone on the best course of action, and we will follow this up with numerous articles exposing Gappy and Govinden and finishing them off as public servants because they are a disgrace to Seychelles and bring great ridicule upon our country for their actions.There is no end in sight to their parade of horribles upon our democracy.

In the first round the opposition is divided. As such it is impossible to win against a communist party financed by Sheik Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nayan.

If we stop elections, opposition will have time to unite to cover for Wavel's grand failure that is catastrophic. Wavel is not leadership material. He has to face it. He has been copying and pasting for years.

If Dhanjee does not stop elections, I expoect him to be calling for a Boyocott aswell.

With the world press corps eying Seychelles, it is time the opposition leadership get some back bone, and stop taking the easy way out all the time.

Prove Pierre Wrong! Prove St. Ange wrong! Prove Derek Savy Wrong! Prove Natalie right for wanting to leave Michel, but not having a way out. Give her a way out! Unite!

How? Withdrawl of candidates and endorsements of anther team at this point.

Get off your duffs! If you love Seychelles do something for her, instead of doing something for yourselves all your lives.

Sesel Pou Seselwa!

A boycott is the right opt in this election, why ?In a democracy elections are conducted to give the citicenry the possibility to choose freely the leader who they think they want to lead them.Elections in Seychelles under Pp dictatoship is a farce and it aims at doing one thing ,keep Pp on power artificcially for eternity.
Since the people would not be able to freely decide who they want to lead them,the opposition should deligitimize Pp by boycotting this election immediately.It is a waste of time,money to stand in a faked election which result is to legitimize Pp dictatorship thus prolong our people suffering.

BOYCOTT THIS MASQUARADE NOW SNP,DP AND OTHERS.

An almost deserted island in the Seychelles might appear to be one of the least challenged environments in the world. North Island has been protected from the contemporary hazard of the tasteless Arab palaces which are blighting parts of Mahé, but nearly 200 years of human habitation have affected it in other ways.

The end question is where does the boycott lead us! This has not been explained.

Christoher you as well as i lnow your call for a boycott will not work. Why do u not instead urge all Seychellois to vote either blue yellow or green. Then we will he guaranteed a second round and then we can all support the opposition candidate that gets to rpund 2. A call for noycott at this stage will only weaken the opposition vote

Anonymous said...

There is another way to turn the tide.We all know that there is fraud and that hundreds of illegal passport holders have flown into Seychelles these past 2 weeks to vote for Michel. So that's enough for me.

If Wavel loses, he should announce in the National Library that he is contesting the elections, and he should call for all able Seychellois to march into Victoria on Monday morning and start a strike. From IOT to Air Seychelles workers, from stevedores to bus drivers. From PUC workers to office workers. Every one should come to town and peacefully march up to State House. The chant should be "Sesel pou Seselwa" and everyone should simply sit down by the gates of State House and stay there for days and weeks if we have to. This will be the next African revolution, similar to what happened in Egypt and what is happening in Libya. In a short few days,the country will come to a standstill and Michel and Rene can be asked to leave the country peacefully. If they refuse, then they will be at the mercy of the crowd and the Seselwa people.

We can unite to remove these corrupt party lepep thieves once and for all. The time is now for action. Let us take our country back.

Anonymous said...

There is a limit to fanaticism!! It should be clear to everyone that Wavel losing by no means equate to Michel winning in an election when there are several opposition candidates and Michel needs to have more than 50% of the total votes cast. The outcome will be decided in the 2nd round as to which of the opposition candidates will stand against Michel.

Anonymous said...

Thats the point. Its about 50% of the total votes casted. So if a significant number of people do boycott, the total votes casted reduces. Lets consider a simple sample. If we have 100 people legible to vote. This represents 100 %. If 20 people decides not to vote, then the number of casted vote reduces to 80. However, I argue that the new casted vote equaling to a total of 80 people WOULD ACTUALLY represents the new percentage representation i.e. 100%
In other words, SPP would not need 40 people not 50 people to win. I do not see the logic about boycotting and 50 %. Its no longer the same absolute number required.

That's a very good point. Gill can't call for a boycott of the first round and then vote in the second round. The boycott may stop a second round. Gill, sort yourself out.

Christopher, it appears, hates Wavel's guts big time. It appears to be more than politics here. It's pure raw hatred. Can you hate somebody so much simply because "he did not unite the opposition"? Are there other reasons which Christopher is not telling us? Because Michel's party and regime has murdered and victimised people for over 30 years, I do not see much venom against him.

This election is nothing else than a wet blanket over the people^s democracy.Let's then boycott this sham election and organize real peopl^s power for the years to come.A boycott will be first and foremost a definitive vote of non-confidence to pp who still want us to believe after four decades of dictatotrship it represents the interests of the country.

In Michel candidate^s speech we saw the usual list of threatical statements ,all meant to distract from the emptiness of its proposal.Pp monopolizes the entire political activity and reduces it to elections campaign every four years.This practice of voting is meant to make the masses think they have influence when in fact the entire political and economic system has been set up to prevent the masses from being able to influence the country's politics.

I call to transform this disaffection into a boycott.I call to make it a movement that truely expresses the knid of democracy we want,people^s democracy and most importantly,the kind of society we want,an egalitarian society free from all froms of oppression and from class exploitation.

Vote with your feet!.let^s participate in an active boycott!

Reply to where does Boycott lead us-

It puts Michel and PL squarely back into a One Party State.

It puts the rest of Seychelles on the road to real change.

A Boycott takes away the credibility Michel and PL need badly. This is why they dose the Opposition with titles, money,funding.By officially supporting an opposition, they claim credibility and this allows them to continue their charades in the back ground.

We must reject this if we want true Freedom and a free and fair electoral process wherein the real voice of the people is respected.

Today, we all participate in a SHAM process. The votes are rigged. The process is funded by Khalifa and other foriegners. Foriegners vote but Seychellois overseas cannot.

When we vote under these conditions, we comprise the quest for democratic freedoms.

Reply to "Hate Wavel"-

I am extremely well versed in the SNP style of politics. Better perhaps then SNP themselves.

So I will reply your fading effort to discredit what I assert.

You say that "a person cannot hate Wavel for just not uniting the opposition".

As I said before, I hate no one, but I focus on the action of the person.

Wavel Ramkalawan is the leader of SNP for 20 years, and the leader of the opposition for a number of years. It is his job to unite the opposition. This is where the effort should have been placed all these years. He has done the opposite and I am confident the results will speak for themselves.

Look carefully at the opposition candidate line up. Where do they all come from except for me, a barred candidate under a barred party?

They come from Apent Vert, Mont Fleuri all of them. Ramkalawan is still at Arpent Vert, Boulle was a presidential candidate of UO in the past; Volcere came from SNM and formed part of UO until they had a money fall out with Ramkalawan.

The point is this: the seeds of division are planted and cultivated by Wavel Ramkalawan and Jean Francois Ferrari. In Seychelles, it is not possible to remove SPUP SPPF PL with a divided opposing vote. Hence, I see no reason why my vote should be used to give Michel any more credibility at this point.

That is the factual situation in Seychelles^' politics today.Making a statement or givening ones point of view is no a criticism,but even if it was one,you should not be complaining beofre asking yourself the question why the criticism if any and then you would have find the answer and in the case of RAM the answer is clear,he has been helping Pp to slave Seychellois in return for millions of rupees in conpensation .Tell RAM to has some morality we expected him to have it as a priest but communsists seem to have succeeded in turning him into a CAIN.

One African, who was kicked out of Zimbabwe, said, that in Africa, and Seychelles is part of Africa, those people and partys, who came to power by means of the gun, will never be taken out of the government at the ballotbox, only again by the gun. He said, if SPPF/PL would today be ousted through the peaceful means of voting, Seychelles would indeed write african historie!
Lets just hope, the Seychellois people are right now in the process of rewriting african historie!

Banla,if the results that are flying around are true then we are indeed in shit. either people did not trust what they heard from the opposition candidates or they think that James Michel is the greatest thing since sliced bread. If we lose tonight, let's forget about EVER changing this government through peaceful means. James will pass baton to Danny soon and Danny to Jean-Paul Adam in due course. Let the opposition close shop and let seychellois get on with their lives - without an opposition.

37 kits (round that up to 9 total quart and a half kits). If a hairline crack in concrete has turned
into a large crack, it will need to be cleaned out before the patching and repairing process.
Repairing larger cracks or holes in driveways takes a little more time and preparation.

twice in a week. Soon after this, use curl lotion all more than your
