First Air Seychelles profit in three years highlights strong turnaround

Posted 18 March 2013 · Add Comment
Air Seychelles, the national airline of the Republic of Seychelles, today reported a net profit of US$1 million for the 2012 financial year.
The positive result comes just 12 months after Etihad Airways acquired a 40 per cent stake in the airline and was awarded a five-year management contract. The profit follows three years of significant losses. 

The chairman of Air Seychelles, Joel Morgan, said the past year had been focused on reshaping the business of the iconic Indian Ocean airline for success. 

“The choice of Etihad Airways as a strategic partner has been the right one.  Working with our new partner, we have had to make some hard decisions to turn the airline around.  We are now seeing the successful results of our strategy,” he said. 

“To record a profit after the immense challenges we faced a year ago is an incredible achievement.  I am proud of the enormous progress Air Seychelles has made.  The recovery of Air Seychelles is a new chapter not only in our airline’s history—but our nation’s.  I am confident we have now laid the ground work for sustainable profitability and our brightly-coloured aircraft will cheer the skies for years to come.” 

Chief executive Officer of Air Seychelles, Cramer Ball, said: “In the first instance, this meant looking at the cost-base, and then stripping down the business right across the airline’s operations to find the right shape and size for our national carrier. 

“We introduced strict fiscal control in parallel with business process re-engineering to make our operation more efficient. We are a very different business today.” 

He attributed this success to leveraging the economies of scale and synergies arising from the equity alliance with shareholder, Etihad Airways. 

This entailed the renegotiation of contracts for catering, ground handling and in-flight entertainment, and the conclusion of joint contracts for fuel, uniforms and stationery supplies, all of which improved service and significantly reduced costs. 

“Our first focus was on a new network plan which could support the hugely important tourist sector in Seychelles more effectively with good connections and broader choice for visitors to the archipelago.” 

To optimise the schedule and enhance connectivity with its partner airlines, the Air Seychelles’ network was expanded through 19 codeshare destinations with Etihad Airways, opening up key European markets, and with the introduction of four flights a week to Abu Dhabi. 

The network expansion was made possible by renewed investment in fleet. During the year, the airline introduced an Airbus A330-200 and wet-leased an Etihad Airways’ Airbus A320 on the Mauritius route. 

“We are going to continue to build our capacity with a second A330-200, allowing us to start flights to Hong Kong to capture the lucrative Asian leisure market in March 2013. We will also be increasing the frequency of flights to Abu Dhabi, Johannesburg and Mauritius.” 

A recently announced codeshare with airberlin will expand the island carrier’s network throughout Europe. 

Network development was accompanied by investment in product and service enhancements. 

“We have responded to the demand from our affluent leisure and tourism guests by introducing a new international inflight product and can now offer a business class experience to rival any airline. Air Seychelles offers on demand dining in business class and is the only airline to offer a lie-flat business class seat flying into Seychelles,” said Ball. 

Seychellois produce now features on the food and beverage menus introduced to enhance the dining experience. 

In-flight entertainment was also upgraded with every seat offering video-on-demand, with expanded movie selections and games scheduled for early in 2013. 

The year also saw the integration of the frequent flyer programme, Seychelles Plus, with Etihad Guest, opening the doors to many more exciting offers and opportunities for its 18,000 members.

An important element of the airline’s turnaround strategy was a people program supported by cross-functional teams from Etihad Airways, introduced to transform the structure of the organisation to improve efficiency and effectiveness.  

In addition to right-sizing the workforce to 550 staff, the plan makes for extensive and ongoing training both in the Seychelles and at Etihad Airways’ state-of the-art Training Academy in Abu Dhabi. One hundred and thirty-six cabin crew underwent training in Abu Dhabi to deliver a higher quality service. Twenty-nine pilots have also been fully-trained on the A330-200. 

“Our team and our warm Seychellois hospitality is our secret ingredient and we are doing everything we can to make sure we nurture and develop our talent. We have forged partnerships to develop Seychellois talent and build career paths through MOUs with Seychelles Tourism Academy and the University of Seychelles. In 2012, 11 candidates were selected to join Etihad Airways technical engineering, graduate manager, and cadet pilot training programs.” 

An ongoing programme will select Seychellois candidates for the career development programs in Abu Dhabi.  

“Our partnership with Etihad Airways has made us a bigger player in the global aviation scene and we are better able to withstand the uncertainties and volatility in the global economy. In addition to our natural organic growth, in 2013 we’re looking to broaden our network through partnerships. Now we need to maintain our strategic focus and effort,” Ball said.

Small hotels are making zero profit no tourists to fill up their rooms.

Actually many hotels are enjoying unprecedented occupancy because Emirates and Ethiopian Airways to less extent Qatar are offering unprecedented discounts as much as 50% from all main European hubs.

Etihad Air Seychelles are the most expensive planes to Seychelles.

DMC are in a grind because online booking agents are stealing their thunder. This will likely result in staff layoffs by mid year.

The long and short of it, is Air Seychelles Etihad, has not been a good partner to the trade. Just a flight to Mauritius is Scr. 10,000 more then a flight to Frankfurt from Seychelles on other carriers.

The confusion rests with the 450 fast track establishments licensed before elections.

Of this, many are tin shacks, with no hotel infrastructure, no proper planning approvals.

Much of the fast track hotels owned by nominee companies front non residents and the revenue finds it way back to the UK or other countries. Hence Tourism becomes a lower performer at the bottom line for Seychelles.

Etihad have renegotiated a lot of Air Seychelles suppliers charges DOWNWARDS and then take over 6 months to pay them, that's why Air Seychelles show a profit.

Airseychelles codeshare might be a good thing to reduce cost on things like maintain,engineering etc...thus in regards to being a motor to our tourism industry,is still a myth.It is clear that should Airseychelles re-operate flghits to Europe it would make more benefit than this little u$ 1 million that one recognize is not a big deal in the Airline industry.By operating direct flgiht to Europe -Seychelles it would not only boost Air Seychelles profit but parallely boost arrivals.Pp tells us that it has a unique business class which would help boost tourist arrival,well Pp i think it is not the service in your Business calss that would increase passengers on Air Seychelles but good amrketing,good services in regards flgiht connection,and flghit planning between the destinations it offers.

St Ange should abandone his one-way communication and instead dialogue and find solution together in order to get the best solution for our Airline.

Jeanne Dork,

If there is so much money to be made on direct flights between Seychelles and Europe answer the following questions.

Why did Air France not resume flights to Seychelles wehen HM pulled out from paris. After all they were code sharing with HM and had a huge seat allocation.

Why did Blue Panorama Fail

Why did British Airways not resume flying to Seychelles.

Why do none of the European charter airlines fly to seychelles.

Simple answer. No demand and No Profit to be made.

Anonymous said...

I guess those Airlines are big and for operational reasons choses to give up on certain routes.As to Blue Panorama,i guess it more a question of publicity,marketing etc..Panorama was operating more as a cahrge airline thus charter Airlines that are successful such as Virgins,Edelweiss etc.. often offer a package that is they offer both flgiht and hotels accommodation in one price which Panorama did not have.

Why do none charter Iarlines fly to Seychelles?That is a good question and it would be good to ask why those same airlines that do not flight to Seychelles fly to other countires in the region -therefore Mauritius,Maldives .Amdagascar,S.Africa etc...?The answer lies, i would say ,in the way our governemnt negociate ,offer,entice such Airlines .And there should be jion venture between those charter Airlines with hotels in order that those Airlines can attract clients in a package offer.

Reply to No Demand-

Air France code shared with Air Seychelles. When Air Seychelles stop flying from Charles De Gaulle, it rudely provided no NOTICE to Air France which incurred loss for the sudden pull out. Therefore Air France was not interested in a Seychelles route. Perhaps they may change their mind some day after the bitter taste of dealing with PL has subsided.

British Airways SFP wrote to them. They are willing to do the Seychelles route, but want 5th Freedom Rights, which means, they can collect passengers on Mahe for an onward flight to Mauritius to make the route viable with a large plane such as a 747 or A380. SCAA PL will not grant British Airways 5th Freedom Rights.

Blue Panorama- failed because it had an old plane that had numerous close calls on the Seychelles route. Is a direct flight form Italy viable? Of course. Italy is a Seychelles main market. If routing to Seychelles is not viable alone, all PL has to do is grant 5th Freedom Rights for a flight from Rome or Milan to fly onwards to Mauritius or Maldives.
Finally, the double pricing practice on landing fees has distorted Seychelles as a destination. Air Seychelles and Eihad pay half of what any other airline pays to land here.

That is why not many air lines are interested in poor little PL Seychelles.

Suck it up, and stop finding excuses for your lame state of existence.

I believe what is happening is PL is protecting Air Seychelles to secure their prestige and free seats.

Secondly, by doing so, they are hampering Seychelles Tourism ability to grow at the rates of 6-9% per year as anticipated by the IMF.

Every year since the IMF Reform program has been in place, we have done only 2% -3% at best. This is a classic case of Institutionalized Economic Stagnation.

By protecting Air Seychelles over defending the Tourism Industry, PL curtails growth and better opportunities for Seychelles and her people.

There is threat to our freedom that is much more insidious. It cannot be dealt with by asking to many questions. Truth you will never hear for the fact that all political leaders are liars.

There are two kind of lies. Those that are outright lies and lies of omission. Most of those sucking blood of others, sitting in front of their computer with nothing else to do are adept at using both varieties. They seem to think they are playing a political game, a game of 'got you' where the use of misinformation known as propaganda is the norm.

They are what the Seychelles desperately needs, a breath of fresh air and a wind of change. SFP works round the clock to benefit all loving freedom Seychellois. Legalite pu tu Sesselwa!

I have confidence that SFP can win the election only if the people realise the amount of years that this government and other parties have failed by their empty promises, greed and self-serve.

Given the chance to SFP, this country will only move forward and not backward like it is at present. As for President I would think Mr Gill fit the category since that he is already a persuasive leader that uses his own funds to support the group, and the only one that can get this country out of the Arabs and mafia claws.

However the best person to attain your questions would have to be SFP leader Mr C Gill himself.

Questions in the Wind-

SFP is here to stay in 3 years, 30 years and 300 years.

The foundations we have laid quickly of "Sesel Pou Seselwa" has kept the PL on their toes day and night.

The last Cabinet batch of resolutions has 6 items on them. 4 items dealt directly with issues SFP pushed to the forefront.

The last SONA dealt with mainly SFP forefront heart issues such as:
1. the practice of selling passports to foreigners;

2. ban on land sales to foreigners;

3. lease of 70 years, SFP said 60 SNP said 25, 50 may be the best proposal, but 25 showa SNP is silly;

4. 10 residency requirement to apply for naturalization;

5. corruption at LUnion Scr. 600,000,000 missing money;

6. dismissal economic performance by PL;

7. Ministry of Health accelerating abortions to 2000 per year;

8. Boycott of Reform when AG office overrides the reform process, SNP NDP BOULLE still sit in even after AG attorney resigns;

9. SFP does not launder money;

10. SFP does not traffic drugs.

I can go on, but the point is clear, SFP is doing the hard work and we mean business.

That does not mean we do not have challenges and obstacles. We do, but that is a natural part of the process of opposition.

You see question in the air, opposition is not about comfort like SNP has taught us with their conspiracy to steal a pension with PL which cost us 20 Million per year to silence politicians.

It is clear to us at SFP that the quest for self determination of the Bona Fide Seychellois people is our number one agenda that is an agenda that includes all bona fide Seychellois, regardless where they reside.

Finally, we look forward to the next elections. We will use it as a n opportunity to expose all you sell outs once and for all and bring change as we do everyday in Seychelles, just by shining a little light in those dark closets, which made you all run to the hardware store to check my bill on tiles for my kitchen.

Indeed the practice of abortion by PL is a great indignation on the People of Seychelles.

What is worse, is the population size increases by 10,000 and all are foreigners.

To add insult to injury, 10,800 people are under GOP when it should never have been the case.

This means 10800 houses are built in another country after term of contract for these workers.

Seychelles has no choice but to higher them because PL has been killing the unborn and killing the labor force.

Church under Bishop Weihe has gone silent on this issue. We will address it with Pope Francis.

Calling others Xenophobe when you cannot take in the exposure of your multiple crimes won't deter us fro speaking the truth to power.Defening one's sovereignty is a duty and a right as it is the duty and rights of any other nations.Xenophoby Pp is the idea that you as a person consider yourself more importatn than another person becuase of its colour,origine,tribes etc...

Incompetent, Corrupt Justice System...

The Nation reported yesterday that the case against the alledged perpetrators of rape/sexual assault by 4/5 soldiers will not now be pursued because of "Inability of the Police to obtain evidence". This is incredible, corrupt and inept. We are supposed to have a Police Scientiific Support Unit. This is a simple case of -- if the young lady concerned had not given her express permission for sex/assault, this should be easy to solve. Was there any contact between any of the perpetrators and the victim? Surely the support unit can find this out. After all, we are forever getting our police force training. What training? What a waste of our money. The police cannot gather evidence to take Lucas to court, neither can they take to court those who have been identified stealing our money. Identified by the auditiors report.. etc. etc..
If the police cannot achieve these simple tasks, the Chief Police Constable should resign. If the policd believe the young lady concerned in the rape allegation was telling lies, she ought to be taken to court for wasting the police time. Either these soldiers go to court or the victim.
The police would have been ordered not to find the evidence, as has been the case several times in the past, when it is claimed evidence is "stolen" or lost. What a disgrace.
Contrast this with a very simple case in the British Court recently when a high ranking Minister and his wife were put in prison for a simple charge of perverting the course of justice..merely they were lying - and for this simple charge they are put in prison. In our country the justice system is corrupt to the core. We must get real.

In a broken state do expect also that all its institutions are broken too.You Right,year after year we heard PP talking about trqining ,modernizing our police forces but nothing have been done.

As you said-Lucas is still at large,irregularity in ministers' budget each year,and each time Govinden tells us"He is looking in it to see if it is neccessary to open an investigation"but nothing happens.

The same to our justice system illegally controlled by foreigners--Just check this actual case on the guy from Burundi--Pp tells us that the journalist Asylum demmand was rejected for reason give by PP(Which i must say when it comes on Asylum we must be tough,otherwise after giving one persons Asylum in 24 hours the whole family would come and after the whole village)and the contary Pp is telling us that in the case of El Materi PP is telling that El MAteri that " the person and family was not declare illegaly immigrant on arrival"But PP when someone wants exile in a country he or she must not declare their intention for Asylum in advance dog.Do you think illegyl immigrants entering Europe for instance,prior to the neter in weurope call the concern host country in advane to say they coming dog?Secondly,El MAteri was not an illegal immigrant on arrival but since he asked for Asylum he is one dog.Thirdly,El Materi while WANTED in his country Tunesia for being part of his family's abused on Humand rights in Tunisia could well reside with the rest of his family Dictator Neb Ali in his Dictators safe haven in Suadi Arabia,no need to come and bulshit Seychellois.Fourly,Pp tells us that the ogvernment is investigating the case to see if El Materi to see qoute"if we can give him a PERAMENT RESIDENCY.

Well PP firstly,TUNISIA is a democractic State now,it is not a dictatorship as under Ben Ali,Tnisia new governemnt has pledge to provide impartial justice to all its citzens under National law wihle respecting Interantional law ,thus those execuses being given by PP that consist of telling us that ElMateri Human rights would be abuse in a democtratic new Tunisia is unacceptable.We do not want to see this criminal on our shores PP,should you give this criminal Asylum against the WILL of the people ,you are warn PP that we will not accept it and once Pp topple this guy would be hand over to the Tunisian authority to face justice--the justice his father never wanted to give his people.

The motive of PP to do all to give El Materi Asylum is fianacially motivated.Pp thinks that all those multi-billions Ben Ali 's familly robbed from his people Pp can pull some out of them.


No Asylum to criminal El Materi on our shores.

On the rape case,this is a system doing everything to protect its police forces that helps keep the system alive.In any modern country,experts would have simply collect sperms for instance of the crimes scene or even by examining the victim could have find traces of abuses.By cross examine those culprits seperately and comfronting them with divergences in their statement could have lead to determining who the culprits relly are.There are many ways to do that.The fact that our police forces cannot even corss examine criminals is in itself distrubing.In a way Pp thugs are protecting statecriminals garb in police unifroms--this PP ^s understanding of human rights protection,justice,and good goverance.

Two years ago a guy called TED BARBE age over 45 was sent to UK for undertaking a degree in policing.Well PP,what would a guy of over 45 year aold bring to the police ofrces on his return?My answer is nothing:He would be probably on his return given an administrative position thus all what he has learned abroad would not be pass to new young police officers.The solution PP which is a long term one,is to sent not one but a few young new officers to universtieis and foreign academies not an old over 45 year old guy.By sending young Seychellois aborad ,on their return the should be then be the ones reorganizing,teaching at police academy,--and a wrod they should be use zo from and profeesionalize our police ofrces and to do that change must take palce at the very beginning namely when new officers are recruited.Police traits and culture must also be change.Whether you send people abroad or not,in the end in order for our police forces to be effective,professional etc... a change at its roots must be undertaken.And more young officers should be send abraod to be proffessionalized not old police officers at the end of their careers PP.

Justice,definitive we want our instituions to be free from foreign occupations.It iti s uncontituional,rape our sovereignty.

Reply to : "LOL- Joke",

Everything is funny to you, except for your fat cat political pension that costs the people of Seychelles 20 Million per annum between SNP and PL ex ministers and ex MNAs forever, until SFP will cancel this gross waste of funds.

This to you is not funny,in fact, it is very serious to you; but everything about Seychelles Freedom Party (SFP)is funny to you like a child that teases his friends because they have a bicycle and the child has only a wooden wheel to play with.

Teasing will not get you a bike, but it will make you and your wooden wheel look like the failure you are.

The bicycle-less child of failure 18 years and counting is SNPL.

Seychelles Freedom Party has what your parties do not: a solid ideology.

We believe in SESEL POU SESELWA! This is our ideology. We defend this principle, and we rise to the occasion to expose all who dare compromise this national ethos of Sesel Pou Seselwa!

When we do, we do not look at political party colors. We could careless if you are red blue or green in the face. If you sell our patrimony, launder money, peddle drugs, we will expose you. Why? Because these are the fundamental issues that set Seychelles and her people into the doldrums 3rd class citizen status.

This is Seychelles Freedom Party!

Similarly, any one who was red blue or green that understand the importance of Sesel Pou Seselwa, is free to join us, contribute, lend a hand, volunteer to enshrine this ideology in Seychelles.

Naturally, we cannot do everything on our own. We need help. We do not need just one vehicle to get the word out, we need 10.

This is why you think we are a joke and LOL: "because our blog does 12,000 views a week and because our ideology is powerful, so powerful that mighty James Michel has to use the State of the Nation address to deal with SFP advocated issues.

SFP ideology is so powerful, that drug Escobars are on the run, even from your party leadership.

Reflect a little and stop wasting our time.

Seselwa Unite!

Sesel Pou Seselwa!

Christopher Gill
Leader
Seychelles Freedom Party

I guess this guy in annoyed,deeply hurt by the way SFP expose them.I could imagine that the guy touched depp in his spine by SFP exposure is more embarrassed thean finding all the good jobs SFp is doing funny.Waht Funny ,i things is Pp scams--When pp for instance told us that we have beaten Muaritius on arrivals then gave the figure )960 ooo arrivals Mauritius 2012 only a meager 2oo,ooo Seychelles and for PP 960 ooo is consdier less than 200,000.Or PP told us in El MATERI case,that El MATERI did not ask for Asylum before landing oun our shores and for this reason if we beleive PP he was or about to be granted Asylum.Pp understanding is that a person seeking for Asylum needs to contact our port of entry before arrival to be consider a potential Asylum seeker.Redicule is not it?

It is in credible that PP ilks find the exposure of their crimes by SFP funny.If criminals find their exposure of their funny so waht could you expect from the same state criminals?Probably more crimes.

You really think when Michel went on TV to ask for Amnesty is funny.I donot think it at lall for Michel your master,it seems rather that he is taking the fact that under a new system Pp criminals would be brought to justice seriously.

SFP is leading the way with solid ideas, that is what is funny.

Funny that it took Christopher Gill and his band of computer techs to expose PL after 18 years of failed DP and failed SNP and dead boring to death Boulle every election.

One more thing-PP donkeys are putting our water shortage problem of Climate change,Whcih has been Michel scapeogat for all his failures.Our water problems is not due to cliamte change PP but for the fact that PP has not buld new DAMS wihle new Hotels and contructions were taking palce.Our sohrtage is due to more hotles constructions especailly those five star hotels with lots of pools fill up with tap water.Dito to our shortage of energy-it is not becuase of climate change we have electricty shortage but rather becuase PP did not build more power supply while making lots of constructions-The reason we have ZERO birth is not becuase of climate change but becuase PP has been killing unborn Seychellois children for the last 3 decades.

It is stated in Pp's article it seems in Switzerland and knowing the swiss education system and high quality we must be proud of him,for Seychellois have talents.To turn the economy around we need to have aminister who take actions according to economic facts,using his experience and knowledge not by dictation from Pp polite buro.You could have the best experts possible as long as they are not indepedent they would end up as any experts serving under PP namely a collaborators.

You know what i find funny in all that?Namely that Nation and all members of PP are congratulating him as if he is the first Seychellois ever to complete a Doctorate abroad and as if he has acheived something rare -I feel a bit in the way PP is giving importance to it, as if Steve Fanny after Amrstrong and Aldrin and a few handful of other Astronautes, FANNY is the first ever African on the moon ,it is historic.

Congratulation Dr. Fanny!

It is true we have never heard of your university.

It is true we are in deep shit financially and Seychelles is sinking under Pierre Laporte your boss.

But any progress is positive.

Since you are now a Dr. and Pierre Laporte is still a guitar player, it would be appropriate for you to take over Ministry of Finance even though we never heard of your university.

The opportunities your Doctorate brings to Seychelles is a shot in the dark.

But under PL Michel even a shot in the dark is worth taking.

Start by cancelling those huge political pensions PL ministers and MNA's have given themselves and SNP.

Your doctorate will tell you that this will save Seychelles 20 Million per year, and in 5 years it will save Seychelles 100 Million Seychelles Rupees.

JENPA said El Matri would neither be deported and nor be given our citizenship?Well,on citzenship we souhl not ever talk about it.Waht is clear by these words from JENPA is that PP regime is doing everything to make it possible to grant El Matri Asylum that he does not deserve.

El Matri according to PP enter here as a tourist on expired Diplomatic passport but was rejected entry in December.Then the altter went to QATAR.Well Matri why not stay in QATAR an Arab country?

Secondly,the lawyer of El Matri is nobody else than M.Vidot the son of ex-colonel of the Army Pti Cluade Vidot who was also FAR's gardener.The reason why M. Vidot is the lawyer is it is a good situation for a PP thug to suck out money from El Matri.But it is also to give us the impression that PP is seriously looking into the case,which in fact has long been dicied by Michel ,But the fake process is needed to fool Seychellois.

Matri should not be given Asylum in Seychelles to tarnish our country's already tarnished image.El Matri life is not in anyway in danger and Tunisia PP is a emocratic country respecting interantion l laws thus the telling us that Tunisia is unstable or trying to give us the impression Tunisdia governemnt elected freely by< the people is a dictatorship wherby Matri human rughts could be abuse is unacceptable.

That PP has already deiced to give Matri Asylum against the will of Seychellis people is crime that would need to be punished.That PP is rushing to introduce Permanent Resident Permit at the speed of light is not a co.incident but PP must introduce one as fast posiible in order to ensure that Matri can buy some for himself and family.

Should PP against all alw still grant Matri Asylum in our country.We would make sure he does not stay here.Which means PP me and my guys reserve the right to take contact to Tunisian governemnt fand offer them my help by arresting matri or whatever the Tunisian governemnt decide.

After sell out of passport PP soon will be switching from passport sell out to Permanent Permit sell out starting by Matri as potential client.

we will see if Seychelles of Matri and Pp or Seychellois.If he is here to stay,i am going to offer the Tunisian governemnt my service to arrest him or else,my guys got the means .Seychelles must no become a safe haven for ex-dictators or their families like Saudi Arabia.Well those Pp donkeys responsible will face justice make no illusion about this.And introducing capital sentence for those donkeys seem more and more inevitable.Morevoer,all those foreigners be Matri,and others must know that all those illegal deals are not recognized by the people and once Pp topple we the people will take back what belongs to us be it our passports gifted to them,or land,PR cards and that unconditionally.

Pp monkeys will pay for all their crimes commtitted for the last 3 decades.

Seychelles is quickly loosing its natural beauty with all those foreigners large houses--The question to PP how come that foreigners are building big houses when the law say that no foreigners can owes or buy land in Seychelles.Those ofreigners for the fact that they are foreigners should firstly know the law of the host country they live in,that means that they should know regradless wahtever excuses they might have that they are not legitable to owe or buy land in Seychelles according to law,and that contruction are being authoritzed by PP thugs palces where the laws .If they failed or ignored our law they must keep this in mind that after Pp dictatoship it would be normal that the people take back what belongs to them.Should they need their money back then they would have to go to PP thugs ,for a new governemnt is not going to compensate any illegal deals made by Pp ? why ?For they should also know the law of our land when the set foot here.

It not god who will unleash them My guys are ready.And seeing PP recidiving i might well send them before 2016 to visit PP thugs in their private homes in order to teach them a lesson and punish thsoe monkeys once and for all.

I hope Pp thugs won't cry,when we visit them for when i guy come PP,they would not be coming to give Amnesty,give pardon or whatever,their mission is simply,namely elinimate of those Pp donkeys.I seems Pp thugs have convinced themselves that nothing would happen to them or maybe convinced by FAR words when he repeatedly told them that NO ONE WILL REMOVE THIS system.But i will prove FAR and his thugs wrong.Beleive PP what Ghadafi experience it is more and more becoming inevitable for you.Donot force my guys to visit you for you will regret.

Here we go again during this sacred weekend of Easter. Jeaanne D'arc coming out with all her anger and threats. Remember 'empty barrels makes most sound'. When the legend FAR masterminded the freedom of Seselwa on 5th June 1977, he did it so calmly and well calculated. FAR never sent out wild threats. He just did it. He did the coup, took so many lives and he just sat back, relaxed and smoked his cigar ! So Jeanne D'arc, learn from the legend, do not send empty promises, Just Do It like FAR did ! A little word of advise, it is not worth following in the footsteps of FAR. Now that he has grown old, he is afraid of dying. He is afraid to meet his creator. He has so much to answer for. Remember we are just transiting through this world, therefore we have to be on our best of behaviour to prepare ourselves for the day we meet our creator. I wished we all feared god, this world would be a better place.
