Let's look at some areas where we have lost focus as a Nation and perhaps Dr. Naiken's ideas can reorient the Nation into moving positive energy in the right direction for a better Seychelles, with better people: "the best we can become".
SBC should give Dr. Naiken his own show on positive energy to breathe some positive thinking into our people before we are positively, Six feet under the ground as a nation There is no time to waste. His book should be read and studied critique in all schools for pupils 14 years - 18 years, before they get on the wrong track of life. Prevention is always better than cure.
Youth of Seychelles Going Astray and reckless at 30 and 40 Years Old
Our Youth, the future of Seychelles, are in general, living a life of lack of focus, lack of discipline and lack of challenge. Drugs and alcohol have become common place in their lives and recreation. They lack a sense of decency, to do what is right and avoid what is wrong. They do not correlate the value of their good name with their future. Our Youth have become obsessed with materialism, focusing their energy on the latest i- phone latest game boy. Prostitution in this young group is high and astonishing. Male and female. Morality has taken a back seat to materialism and drug habits. Dignity is sidelined. Self respect has become a foreign idea to many Youth.
Ministry of Youth hold seminars to reorient the Youth as the future workforce to reduce the 12,000 GOP holders and turn out is fickle. The leaders in the private sector that turn up to help them, with solid real life advise, are taunted and not taken seriously. The youth in Seychelles are people from ages 13 - 30. Ten years ago, it was 13 - 40, under the Communist definition of Youth. Maybe that is part of the problem. If someone thinks they are a youth until 40 ten years ago, they will take life easy and remain carefree longer then if they believe Youth ends at 30 according to PL policy today. I grew up understanding my Youth will end when i am 18 years of age. That is the age, that you become a consenting adult in the US. Parents usually show you the door by then, so you need a plan for education, work, money etc...... If you do not have a plan, you join the NAVY, ARMY, or AIR FORCE to get off the streets before the Police pick you up or you get into trouble with the law or gang violence.
Perhaps PL needs to reassess its desire to politically control people by controlling them until they are 30 under their policies, and let them grow up by 18, which is the norm.....in the world, today. Stop babying the Youth until they are 30 PL.Set then free at 18. What are you waiting for?
Fishermen Catching Drugs
Systematically we are witnessing as a Nation numerous fishing boats coming in with extraordinary loads of drugs, as much as SCR. 50Million a load. Incredible is it not? The fishermen are getting a bad wrap as carriers of drugs from Kenya and Madagascar. Not long ago, yachts coming into Seychelles for bareboat were doing the same. A load of drugs pays for a yacht and all expenses plus cash to spare. Loading boats with drugs is the oldest trick in the book of traffickers. One only wonders what took PL so long to catch on.
The sad thing about these arrests, is that the fishermen are being used by big time drug cartels that finance Scr. 50 Million loads that in turn corrupt and destroy our country. They are keeping the next generation high permanently. Additionally, fishermen have defacto abondoned their trade, which in the past, was very profitable. Who will take the step to reel them back to their trade? As the national catch drops each year, because drug trips make more money, what will happen to Seychelles economy and our national standardof living? PL has shown, it cannot win this war on drugs, and it has shown that it also involves its own people. What positive steps will PL take to rid Seychelles of drugs?
Money Laundering at it's PEAK in Seychelles
The recent articles exposing Seychelles as a key money laundering base by using Seychelles registered offshore companies has placed Seychelles squarely in a realm of disrepute internationally. The amount exceeds $500 Billion according to one report, involving 2,000 Seychelles shell companies, all formed by one person, who is still doing offshore in Seychelles. Incredible. That Seychelles Police, SIBA, Attorney General cannot act on such information when the International organisations are begging for actions. It is as if we are consigned to this type of negative publicity and we accept it as being normal and part of our FAILURE DNA as a Nation. We can do better then this PL.
Congratulations PL! You are No. 1! Bravo! Excellent! Job well done! For what? STATUS: Most indebted Nation in the world: Seychelles. Thank you.
One question: what positive steps will you take to unite Seychelles, to tackle this infamous title to make Seychelles, "THE LEAST INDEBTED COUNTRY IN THE WORLD" in 5 years?
Sesel Pou Seselwa!
May God Bless All Freedom Loving Seychellois!
