In July 2016, Peter Bones Boniface made a visionary speech in an LDS rally in which he correctly predicted the coming victory of the LDS in the Assembly elections; the resignation of then President Michel, and the approaching death of Albert Rene. In that speech, he sent out a public message to Rene warning him that he didn’t have long to go, and that history would remember him as the biggest criminal that Seychelles has ever seen. Now that Rene is dead, Bones sets out below his faith in the new age of Unity and Humanity that he envisions will someday happen in our society.

By Peter Bones Boniface

The death of ex-President Albert Rene has brought new Hope for the majority of Seychellois who are determined to bring a new age of Unity and Humanity to our nation. For all decent, peace- loving Seychellois, it is a blessing that the evil spirit that has brought so much sufferings, violence, hatred and moral degradation to our society, has now finally left us.

I now have full faith that we will someday succeed in bringing back into our society the moral values and loving spirit that was once the pride of our Creole culture, because the Force of Good will now grow stronger and will gradually wipe out all the evil poison that Rene brainwashed into the minds of our people.

The evidence for that started to show in the ridiculous circus of Rene-worshipping that was conducted for his funeral. The US party that promotes Rene’s evil ideology of hatred and violence, had seized this golden opportunity to use SBC state television and radio to spread their shameful propaganda. But it backfired spectacularly.

First of all, they failed to attract the massive crowds of supporters they had expected after their bizarre propaganda mass, media publicity campaign, free transport and other bribes. All they got was a relatively small crowd of ageing fanatics which included a mob of village people who attacked journalist Nicette, and were keen and proud to show off the primitive violence and hatred that they had learnt from their master, Rene.

To make it worse, the US organisers couldn’t find anyone of respectability who was willing to make adoration speeches to Rene. So they had to contend themselves with a few sickening eulogies by some dodgy characters which included Rene’s wife, Sarah. Last year, Sarah shocked the nation with her outrageous lies after the vast government properties that she fraudulently acquired with Rene during his 27 years in power, were exposed by the National Assembly. For the funeral, she decided to knock herself down even more with a deeply embarrassing speech in which she again lied shamelessly about Rene’s ‘extraordinary’ good heart and innocence, when she knows fully well the horrible sufferings that Rene caused to thousands of our people.

So altogether, it is very obvious that this sneaky PR exercise has done more harm than good to US’s image, and their chances of survival in the next elections now looks very slim. But what that sinister pantomime has also shown us, is that Rene’s millionaire family and the wealthy cronies whom he corruptly enriched while he was in power, are now on a mission to have Rene worshipped as a hero and a liberator by our nation. Unfortunately for them, this will never happen.

They will fail big time because the evil cult that they are promoting was built through evil practices which included human sacrifices and a barbaric Mind-Control campaign that managed to brainwash all the gullible people who didn’t have enough wisdom to see the obvious cruelties that Rene was openly preaching and practicing.

Over the years, a mass of people who at first got caught in Rene’s indoctrination, including all his original Ministers, managed to break free from his chains, and ended up denouncing and condemning all his monstrous crimes. The only two original Ministers who remained trapped are the two who were installed as Presidents after him. Besides them, the little dwindling band of worshippers who still remain brainwashed today, will never be saved. They are a dying breed who like an ancient tribe, will gradually go extinct and follow their master into the dustbin of history.

The majority of Seychellois on the other hand, especially the younger generation, are today too informed and too wise to allow themselves to be brainwashed by the foolish lies that this new deluded team of Rene-worshippers are trying to promote. The whole nation knows that Rene was a brutal dictator who terrorised our nation with a Reign of Terror that saw thousands of our people victimised, dispossessed, tortured, imprisoned, exiled and even murdered. They know that he brought guns, violence, hatred and division to our once peaceful people by carrying out a violent military coup and by constantly preaching to his supporters to treat all his opponents as “enemies of the people”.

They also know how much he enriched himself, his family and his cronies with our nation’s wealth and properties; and how far advanced and prosperous and united we could have been today if he hadn’t carried out his cowardly coup. Worse still, they know that he showed his contempt and disrespect for our nation, by refusing till the end to offer any remorse or apology for the horrible sufferings he caused to our people.

After all this evidence, those who still choose to worship such a psychopath as their hero are either plain retards, totally brainwashed or possessed by evil themselves. Their poster boy, MNA Aglae provided a genius defence recently when he shockingly announced to the National Assembly that Rene’s crimes were justified because of the progress he brought to Seychelles. What Mr Aglae was in fact admitting, is that his US party which is fully made up of Rene worshippers, still believes that it is right to terrorise and victimise opponents in the name of progress; and would happily do the same if they ever got into power again.

Fortunately for us, this will never happen again. This kind of dangerous ideology that Rene brainwashed into the minds of his supporters; and that MNA Aglae and MNA Gill are still trying to promote, will never again distort and poison our people’s minds. Once our nation, especially the youth, is educated with high moral principles and inspired by real Seychellois heroes who have brought pride and moral value to our nation, no evil cult will ever rule our country again.

This is why I am making this humble appeal to President Danny Faure to seize this unique opportunity now to take the actions necessary to wipe out Rene’s evil spirit from our society, and thus help speed up our nation’s progress towards the age of Unity and Humanity that we are destined to reach. If he can find the courage to do that, he will earn great respect from our nation.

I therefore appeal to him firstly, to order a full investigation into the crimes that Mr Rene committed against our people, with the aim of issuing an official Condemnation and a formal Apology to the thousands of Seychellois who have suffered from his crimes. The majority of Seychellois believe that there is now an urgent need for such an action because Rene ’s crimes have never been investigated and he has been allowed to escape to his grave scot-free. If President Faure really wants to bring Justice and Unity to our nation as he promised, he has a duty now to take a decisive, symbolic action that can bring a sense of Healing and Closure to the thousands of Seychellois who were victimized and terrorised by Rene.

Secondly, I appeal to President Faure to launch a national free debate on SBC television and radio which will allow our whole nation to know the Truth about the monstrous crimes that Mr Rene committed against our people; especially the disappearances and murders that are still tormenting the minds of many families today.

I am making this Appeal because I sincerely believe that once we have cleaned our society of this dark evil force, people from both political camps will feel a new enlightened human spirit and a new national pride and desire to work together to bring Unity, Peace and Prosperity to our nation. I have full faith that the majority of Seychellois have the courage, wisdom and humanity to make this dream happen; and it will someday happen.

Peter Bones Boniface is a wellknown Seychellois lawyer, singer- songwriter and sportsman who was an open critic of President Rene’s One-Party State throughout the Eighties. As a result, he was often arrested until the age of 27 when he was imprisoned for several months in solitary confinement, under the direct orders of President Rene. Upon his release, all his songs were banned on national TV and radio; his property was later acquired despite his protests, and he was forced by death threats from President Rene to take his young family into exile in London where he’s been living since.
