By Ralph Hoarau

Over the past two years we have seen a lot of allegations of criminal wrongdoings by senior members of SPPF/PL that have come to light. Those implicated include the former dictator France Albert Rene, his successor James Michel and many other officials that comprised the core leadership of SPUP/SPPF/PL. We have seen and heard allegations made by Dr. Maxime Ferrari (former VP under the Rene dictatorship) about the brutal murders of political opponents of the regime at the dictator’s former palatial home in L’Exile at Sans Souci. Allegations of wholesale corruption, extortion, theft of state assets and a plethora of white collar crimes by former SPUP/SPPF/PL elites are being exposed almost on a daily basis by no less than the National Assembly.

In spite of all those allegations, we have seen no movement from Danny Faure in his capacity as president to take any action to initiate formal investigations into those serious crimes. This can be construed as both impotence and dereliction of his duties or a demonstration of his connivance to deliberately obstruct justice, so that he can protect his former colleagues and political mentors who nurtured him and installed him in the position that he is in today. This is the man who promised a new era of transparency and clean governance, a man who proclaimed that “Sesel I pli gran ki nou tou.” After his abject failure to take the moral high road and act accordingly, Danny Faure has shown without a shadow of a doubt that there is a criminal elite that is indeed “Pli gran ki Sesel.” Danny Faure has so far failed the cause of justice in Seychelles.

In order to continue protecting his murderous political masters, Danny Faure has tried to pull off a brazen act of deception. His carefully staged apology for the callous murder of Constable Berard Jeannie by the coup plotters on the 5th of June 1977 is nothing but a charade.

While this apology should be a welcomed small step, we can, however, all see that it is disingenuous and a shameful stage-managed sham. On whose behalf is Danny Faure apologizing, himself, Albert Rene, James Michel and the other criminal coup plotters, the SPUP/SPPF/PL, the State of Seychelles, who???? What about all the others that were murdered and that have disappeared without trace to this day, are they insignificant??? Is this hollow apology meant to compensate for all the crimes committed by SPUP/SPPF/PL and its ruling elite over the past 42 years???

Despite its obvious devious intentions, this apology has left the Opposition like a rabbit caught in the bright glare of a spot light in the dead of the night. It has left them out on a limb. The fact is that the Opposition should have acted more decisively on this issue a long time ago. They should have taken steps long before to recognise and honour all our heroes who have fallen in the struggle for the return of democracy in Seychelles. It was after all their moral obligation to do so. They failed in that regard and now Danny Faure has pounced to try and gain the moral high ground by offering this so called apology. In the eyes of some he has managed to upstage the Opposition on an issue where they should already have taken decisive ownership.

So now, what should the Opposition do next?

The Opposition should now take decisive actions. They should call Danny Faure’s bluff and force his hand and demand that he immediately initiates investigations into all those criminal allegations that have surfaced. They should ask him to present comprehensive plans with timetables when those investigations will begin. If he fails to do they should block all his proposals and bring his government to a standstill.

This will play to the advantage of the Opposition in various ways.

If Danny Faure’s government is brought to a halt, he will have to dissolve the Assembly and call for fresh elections, where the Opposition is likely to increase its majority in the Assembly. This outcome would force Faure to resign and call for fresh presidential elections that he will most likely lose. If Faure persists to hold on to power, he will become a lame duck president and lose all respect on the international scene. World leaders will not want to deal with a lame duck. Assumption is a good example where Faure’s government has been humiliated on the world stage.

The Opposition now has an opportunity to show the people that they really want to pursue real justice in Seychelles and bring an end to that PL regime once and for all. The longer they fail to take the initiative on the issues of championing the cause of real justice and the recognition of our fallen heroes, the more they risk losing the political initiative to Danny Faure as time drags on and he conjures up more of those dramatic stage shows.

If on the other hand Danny Faure is contrite and genuine in the pursuit of justice and has really divorced himself entirely from SPUP/SPPF/PL, his next move should be bold, courageous and decisive. He should immediately order meaningful and serious investigations into those alleged crimes and bring the perpetrators, whoever they might be, to justice. He should be prepared to jettison his old criminal masters and make them face justice. He should also grab the initiative and take steps to formally recognise and honour our fallen heroes for their invaluable contributions towards the real struggle to restore democracy in Seychelles. If Faure can do that, he will not only go a long way to redeem himself but also to prove that he is a genuine reformer and a transformational leader in the same mould as a Gorbachev or F.W. de Klerk. He could even set himself up for a victory as an independent candidate in the next presidential elections. The trillion Dollar question is - does Faure have the conviction and moral fibre to take such a high road?

Mr. Faure we do not want your token, disingenuous apologies that seek only to protect your colleagues and predecessors, we want to see the pursuit and dispensing of real justice. Your continued impotence and/or obstruction of justice are no longer tolerable.

I annan en dikton granmoun ki dir ‘malen pa anpes kouyon’

Apre koudeta 1977 Monsieur Albert Rene ti annan gran plan pour Seselwa, par egzanp, premyerman i ti ouver laferm Sadeko Belombre avek Ma Constance pou plante e met fri dan bwat me I pa’n reisi. Dezyenman, ouver N.Y.S pou fer marse ledikasyon me i pa’n reisi. Trwazyenman … elevaz bef Cote D’or Pralen pou nouri tou Seselwa me i pa’n reisi. Katriyenman, La Pas, Silwet pou fer elevaz poul avek dizef … i pa’n reisi. Senkyenman, milyon de milyon roupi pou kanmaron lo zil Koytivi … I pa’n reisi. Sizyenman met tou bann zil dan lanmen I.D.C pou prodwir legim, i pa’n reisi. Setyenman, Barbaron pou prodwi fler, i pa’n reisi. Wityenman, ouver S.M.B pou fer pri lavi desann me i pa’n reisi.

The 3 Amigos
An 1990 Msye Rene ti deklar son lekor koman en arsitek me tou sa bann plan pa’n marse. An 2004 i ti pas baton avek son depite Msye James Alix Michel me Msye Michel avek tou son doktora ti annan en pti lespri an tet. I ti fer nou bwar delo sale. Ler lopozisyon ti dir li fer en danm i ti demande ki nou pou met dan danm.

An 2010 Msye Michel ti promet Seselwa gran devlopman pou arive dan lavil Viktorya. Sesel ti pou fleri parey Sengapour, nou ti pou annan tren sorti dan Nor pou al dan Sid.

An 2017 pou louvertir lasanble Msye Faure li i ti vin avek son gran plan. In vin promet nou de proze tinel. Msye Faure, Seselwa pa dormi dan tinel, Seselwa pa aste manze dan tinel, Seselwa pa reste dan tinel, problenm trafik dan lavil nou pou pas dan tinel ….

Not satisfied with their gigantic land portfolio, 40 or so registered under their old name Seychelles People`s Progressive Front (SPPF), Parti Lepep have been expanding. On the 8th of May 2014 Parti Lepep of Maison Du Peuple leased 2 plots of prime land in town for 60 years at Bois de Rose Avenue; V18998 and V18999. The rent for 4387 square metres of prime land of 2 plots, works out at SR10,965 per month, and were even given a grace period of 18 months.

Their plans for development are currently unknown. However, what is known is that due to them expanding their empire, they had to recruit a Chief Executive Officer (CEO). A CEO is usually the highest-ranking executive in a company, and their primary responsibilities include making major corporate decisions, managing the overall operations and resources of a company, and acting as the main point of communication between the board of directors and corporate operations. This could be the first time in history a political party anywhere in the world has needed a CEO. Business has been booming for Parti Lepep Ltd.

Corruption is defined as the abuse of entrusted power for private gain, by an individual or entity. The land allocation policy of the government, past and present, is one piece of land per person or entity. Adding another 2 more plots to their burgeoning portfolio is the red line, as calls to return the 40 plots under SPPF have been ignored for the last 2 years; most notably by Hon Flory Larue. Parti Lepep Ltd stock price is about to crash and their portfolio vaporized!
