James Michel promised the People of Seychelles in the State of the Nation Address that his government will now deal with his own administration policy of the selling of passports, fast tracking naturalization, the restriction of the sale of land to foreigners which has been in place for 30 years, but not implemented, and a plethora of other grievances addressed in the Mouvman Seselwa Rasin Kredo Rasinist Manifesto “Sesel Pou Seselwa “and the Seychelles Freedom Party Manifesto “Seselwa Unite”.
The MSR/SFP Struggle
These issues have been at the forefront of MSR/SFP struggle as focus issues because behind these issues, are our quest as a People, the Seychellois People to self determination when we face political dilution of our interests in our own country after the Communist regime of F.A. Rene, and more so today, James Michel’s government, accelerated the sale of our citizenship to raise funds, accelerated the sale of land to foreigners under their rule, at cheap prices , disenfranchising our people in our own country, regulating many Seychellois to live out their lives in flats, planting pepper plants in discarded tires and milk tins, when every Seychellois should rightfully have a title deed in his and her name owning land and be able to cultivate the same if they wish.
As much as 35,000 Seychellois Rasin have formed part of a diaspora from 1977 onwards, being replaced by Fabrike citizens (made Seychellois illegally) to keep SPPF PL in power,( MSR Manifesto Article 8) and taking our citizenship and our land. Consequently, Bona fide Seychellois are losing political control on their patrimony Seychelles, our Motherland. James Michel has accelerated this diabolical formula to destroy our people. In the State of the Nation speech, he even referred to Bona Fide Seychellois as all being foreigners at one point, and all foreigners he said should be welcome to Seychelles and treated as Seychellois. A leader could not offend his people much more than that, when the history of Seychelles is clear: we were all subjects under different flags as a people oppressed and never considered “citizen”, be it the French or English rule. As subjects we were treated in an inferior manner contrary to UN recognized rights to self determination.
In the next election, Mr. Michel may well have Gurhkas vote for him and control the voting boxes. Who knows, our next Election Commissioner can be a Gurhka and even Mr. Gappy will be sent to live in Australia to retire where he will join 30,000 Seychellois. Even our next Attorney General may be a Gurhka. So Mr. Govinden needs to reflect carefully on his position start defending the rights of Seychellois instead of crushing them.
“King Salesman Jim” a.k.a James from Anse La Mouche
No other President has sold more land to foreigners then the Presidency of James Alix Michel. This President has made F. A. Rene look conservative, and he has made James Mancham look like a small time realtor in his day when he drove around town in a convertible Rolls Royce showing Kashoogi the lands available in Seychelles up for grabs for cheap. These days, Michel shows off assets for sale by helicopter, much faster than a convertible Rolls Royce, but he is still selling land in Seychelles on the cheap, sometimes for Scr. 1.0.
Mr. Michel has implemented a policy of sell baby sell, for years, and today, he says this will stop. Can we trust James Michel? No. Should we trust James Michel? No. Is James Michel someone we can trust with our fishing resources, our land, our passports, our water, electricity and money? No. Is this true? Yes. Ask his Ex Wife, she is singing. The soon to be ex- wife is singing as well. In time, the next wife will sing too.
Fabrikes Everywhere Today
In the Kredo Rasinis Manifesto of MSR, the terminology of “Fabrikes “ was introduced to Seychelles. “Fabrikes” are “fake Seychellois”.
Even At State House
Ironically, today, Mr. Michel talks to us about these Fabrikes in his speech, yet two years ago, it was illegal according to him to discuss this issue. He even attempted to post a blog once to say that it is racist, never understanding the definition of racism. Under pressure from SFP, he now says now, “Even the President will not be allowed to grant citizenship”.
Additionally, the residency requirement for naturalization will go from 5 years to 10 years. Why should a person married to a Seychellois wait 10 years to be naturalized? Should we trust Mr. Michel with this sensitive issue? No. Why? He is not to be trusted. Fabrikes make up the vast majority of James Michel support. He has allowed them to hijack Seychelles by riding Rene’s coattails and now he even punishes decent folks to hide his crimes of selling passports and granting citizenship in a loose manner.
Foreigners Have No Right To Own Land In Seychelles
In his speech, Mr. Michel attempted to announce Article 19 of the MSR Manifesto as his government’s policy from 2013 onwards. He says foreigners will now not be able to own land in Seychelles. They will be able to lease land only for up to 70 years. Thereafter, the lease will terminate and the land will revert back to the Seychellois.
Article 19 of the MSR Manifesto says that the Seychellois Rasin (SESELWA RASIN) has exclusive right to own land in Seychelles in Fee Simple. What has Michel said different from what MSR said? Michel said foreigners will not be able to renew leases. MSR said they could, if they pay the owner and agree. Why would Michel restrict investment in Seychelles by imposing such a thieving principle on land leases?
One SFP activist said to me: “he did that because it is his instinct to steal and shaft people, even after 70 years”.
MSR Said 75 Year Lease With Option to Renew
The MSR Manifesto permitted foreigners the right to lease land for 75 years with option to renew leases so they do not lose their investments. They can keep it if they can agree to pay a Seselwa Rasin a fair price for renewals. In such a case both parties benefit.
Michel’s proposal is mad and prohibits renewal of leases, so under his program, foreign investment will eventually be diluted to nothing. This is stealing Mr. Michel if you did not know.
It looks as if MSR had a clear head compared to James Alix Michel and the rest of his empty spirit when they deal with the issue of foreign investment in Seychelles.
PROTEZ NOU PATRI
MSR Manifesto Article 5 provides that Seychelles is the patrimony of the Seychellois Rasin. SFP Manifesto uses the term found in the Seychelles Constitution, that,” …..all bona fide Seychellois have a right to participate in government and a duty to protect their patrimony. This language is also found in the Preamble, which was a poem actually written by Mr. James Mancham all by himself to add a little flair to the sometimes boring process of writing a Constitution with F.A. Rene while James Michel peddled the Malo Arms to Rwanda Hutus.
This means, Seychelles belongs to us Seselwa Rasin. The benefits and burdens of our patrimony rest with us “Seselwa Rasin”. Under James Michel, he says these things, but in practice what do we see?
In practice we see Shiekh Khalifa calling the shots. In practice we see 80 Gurhkas policing our people even on traffic detail. They waive at us, pull us over, inspect our cars, rough us up and treat us like foreigners in our own country. James Michel, this type of bullying is not on man. Train Seychellois to do these jobs, no matter how hard it is for you when they turn on you. Send these Gurhkas home and restore dignity to the people of Seychelles. Consider going to live with them in Nepal. Take your Rolls Royce with you.
You will live a more dignified life and secure a more respectable place in history to be ousted by your own people then to be protected by 80 Gurhkas and 10 Irish.
SFP will send the Gurhkas home. You can trust SFP to do the job that James Michel cannot do. The Irish will be replaced with more educated, more capable Seychellois that speak proper English and do not need 83 Million rupees per year to do a drug seizure program in an island with only 89,000 people.
EL MATERI FIASCO
The son in law of ex President Ben Ali of TUNISIA has sought political asylum in Seychelles. This chap has been convicted of a number of corruption related charges in Abstentia and his luck is running on the low side of the fuel gauge from what I have been advised by key sources. It is unfortunate for himself and his family. However, we must be clear, Seychelles has no asylum legislation and it had none when he entered the country numerous times. So it is clear, beyond a doubt, that it is James Michel who is harboring and protecting this chap from INTERPOL and the legitimate government of TUNISIA today.
Let us be clear, we have no issue with El Materi. Tunisia has an issue with him.
Our issue is with James Michel’s prolific practice of compromising Seychellois dignity and our national citizenship and selling off our patrimony recklessly, under value. This results in the displacement of our people in our own country.
Jules Egbert Savy Lesson No 1.
El Materi needs to know something about PL: they promise to take care of you, until you are out of money, and the government looking for you promises a grant or loan which you cannot match. Then they put you on a Catamaran for Madagascar. Finally they call South Africa, advice you are on the way and very dangerous and you are collected in the middle of the ocean. Ask Jules Egbert Savy another person, who recently went through what you are going through what happened to him. Eventually all your assets that gave you a false sense of security are divided by the thieves. Sometimes they have petty squabbles over who owns what. But that is life with PL and that is how the JJ spirit economy works.
Sometimes one would think our President from the Communist Party just looks at the pictures in the Economist.
Sesel Pou Seselwa!
May God Bless All Freedom Loving Seychellois!
