This June the 5th celebrations seemed to be on the puff and puff mode for Danny Faure the Vice President. He placed a little flower at the foot of Zom Lib. But behind him was the cadre of PL from Ministers, to MNA's District officials, tea ladies, cleaners of the party apparatus and "fast track want to be's" like Renny Bijoux who has had a full busar to University of Seychelles, and recently, sent to the North Pole on an expendition usually reserved for brave and courageous people. I was surprised not to see James Mancham placing at least one rose at Zom Lib's foot, given his close work these days with PL as a De Facto Ambassador at large (ex officio-ass-o).
Aside from meeting Danny Faure's needs, Zom Lib and June 5th, remains a deep, very deep wound in the minds and hearts of the People of Seychelles.
The June 5th Fiasco must be opposed by the People of Seychelles if they are to keep Seychelles as their patrimony and motherland. A program to oppose June 5th, must start every June 6th.
Education System Has Failed This June 5th!
Many say the Youth have many opportunities that the past generations did not have. This is true all around the World and Seychelles is not an exception to this rule. Similarly after World War II we were all poor around the World, and we would have been much poorer if Adolf Hitler succeeded in 1945. This includes all you PL that have forgotten fat living off the blood of the People of Seychelles.
How can you discipline children if the leadership of the country lack discipline?
End June 5th celebrations and remove Zom Lib from Public and we will bring order back into our schools.
Lack of Discipline in the Workplace
Did you see all the 3,600 unemployed workers linind up to witness the laying of wreaths at the Zom Lib statute? Thet were here for a reason. They stood right behind the Minister of Employment egging her along to sing whatever songs she had on her song sheet. The Minister of Employment when she took office, was shocked to see so many people lining up to her office. She immediately, said her office is too small and she needed more luxurious offices and she immediately booked out the new Oliagi complex office just off State House where her best of the best friends Lise Bastienne works as Secretary of State and other duties.
In return, PL forces all of Seychellois to import 10,800 workers, because PL does not create a program to repatriate the 30,000 plus Seychellois or even a portion thereof back to Seychelles. Where is the land bank program for returning Seychellis? There is none. Why? Because PL would rather keep these decent Seychellois overseas eternally and import Gurhkas, Filipinos, Indians, Somalians to work in Seychelles. This is PL June 5th 2013. What is worse, the Minister herself recently declared in the National Assembly that we will now need 25,000 GOP workers in the next five years. I suppose they will then apply for housing at Ile Perseverance.
It is June the 5th celebrations that cause 30,000 Seychellois to leave Seychelles and make our economy dependent on foreign workers and foreign investors, and foreign UAE technicians even for Planning Authority works.
End June 5th Celebrations and remove Zom Lib from Public and we will see how many Seychellois return to Seychelles to start a new life in their homeland. We will see the dependency on foreigners reduced drastically; we will see wages go up for Seychellois.
June 5th is a chain around the necks of the People of Seychelles. Only the fat cats that lay roses and wreath at the foot of the metal man enjoy a good life in Seychelles.
Sesel Pou Seselwa!
