It is becoming clear that the SPP government has changed its attitude to try and save their skins and hope to sink less in to the Black hole of bankruptcy. Time is running out and more extraordinary and uncommon things needs to be done at all levels. These include be-friending ex-enemies, the so called capitalist world such as the United States, United Arab Emirates and rushing here and there between China and India and then appearing in the districts to pretend to listen to all the people’s problems. The former strategy is even more simple, the president has to simply beg and beg. This is the economic development reform. However, this “begging” strategy is still not working as the black hole situation is so deep. Now the final answer-the silver bullet-super gravity effect to escape the black hole dilemma seems to be promising as new data shows large potential reserves for oil in the EEZ. But it will take many years..... I wonder if this men ever understood basic economics. It will be the magic of the day to all the government’s problems and suffering of the people they themselves have created.
In the end the economic problems will not solve in the short and medium term if the political systems are unchanged. This is what it feels like in a Black hole when the government wanted to listen only to the Yes comedians and were the country is managed by loyal appointed candidates. On this note, we should remember the SPPF slogan which goes something like “ BE WHAT YOU WANT TO BE”. Now it makes more sense than ever. If you want to be Chancellor of Seychelles University, No problem. If you want to act like Foreign Affairs Minister, it can be done. I wonder what are the next wishes for him and his entourage, perhaps Commander in Chief for Oil. Anything you wish is possible as long as you serve the SPPF/SPP. It is this attitude which will keep us in the deep black hole for a good long time. People of the Seychelles should understand even if natural resources lie underneath our feet, any government can exploit them, but it takes good governance to manage the resources, not the Yes men and loyal servants who fulfills their slogan “BE WHAT THEY WANT TO BE” and then bankrupt the country even further.
Lastly, I promise that in our future writing, we shall explore together the definitions of patriotism. This is to put some rest to those people who think if you debate or make criticism you are not patriotic. The question is: patriotic to “what”and “who”? What is the difference between between patriotic to the ruling government and that to out motherland. Our principle is very clear we are not patriotic to individuals or systems of governance but to our motherland. We operate on the name of transparency and accountability... we are patriotic to the principles of good governance.
