Mauritians won’t be silent!

Mauritius is going through a very difficult phase. Lots of time we hear that just posting on Facebook won’t change a thing. Mauritians just talk, no action. Mauritians are cowards.
 
The prophet of Islam reportedly said:
 
“Whosoever of you sees an evil, let him change it with his hand; and if he is not able to do so, then [let him change it] with his tongue; and if he is not able to do so, then with his heart — and that is the weakest of faith.” [Muslim]
 
We cannot actually stop a minister/ti-copin from stealing. We don’t even have access to his office. Forget even the papers. We don’t know what’s happening there.
 
Our voice is what we common Mauritians have — at-least for now. We can see bad things happening. We should talk about it.
 
I don’t have a fucking clue what ICAC et al. do. They are supposed to have powerful hands to stop corruption. Maybe they are helpless too. If your are helpless ICAC, voice it out! We Mauritians are paying you big money.
 
If or When (i hope not) Mauritius becomes like North Korea, we’ll put our votes in ballots in favour of Government despite the heart says otherwise because it then becomes a question of survival.
 
I hope Mauritius never becomes like North Korea. Mauritius is a beautiful country with amazing people. We can’t allow politicians to ruin our reputation and divide us.
 
Peace.
 
 

Abolition of Re-registration Duty for Cars in Mauritius

This morning on Facebook, I came across someone who posted the following:

Let’s have a look on NTA’s instructions on how to sell your car.

source: nta.govmu.org [accessed: 02/05/2017]
The procedures seems fair and easy and not costly. However, the “The deed of sale should be registered at the Registrar General’s Department” part will be very expensive. Why doesn’t the NTA put the all the cost in one place? Anyways, there are no direct links from that page to know how much you have to pay to register the deed of sale.

I had to google it.

The second link is the PDF which has the informations.

2 months ago, I wanted to buy a newer car. But with these exorbitant duties, I refrained.

Now we ask ourselves, how many old cars are involved in fatal accidents? Every time I watch the news, I see BMW, Mercedes, etc being crushed. Where are the old cars? Why are they so hated?

 

Older cars are used exclusively by poor people. Each time a poor person buys an old car, he has to pay Rs 6,500, Rs 10,400, Rs 13,000 for >1001cc, >1251cc, 1501cc respectively.

Math question for CPE students and adults too. [300 points]

Let’s assume each time an old car is sold among the poor, Rs 10,000 goes to the government. How many poor people it takes to pay for the new Pravind Jugnauth car which is valued at Rs 23,541,673? Please leave the answer in the comments.

Why are Mauritians so concerned about Nandanee Soornack?

Mauritians are bored. They love drama. I guess that’s why the media gives them dramas to keep their minds busy after pretending to be busy in 9-6 jobs.

Mauritian Media quoting Nandanee Sournack

Current politicians are abusing power. They are buying BMWs worth more than Rs 20 million rupees each. And our attentions are diverted to some ex-government agents who allegedly abused power. I don’t care anymore! Let’s stop the current ones from blowing our money and selling our beautiful country.

When the opposing party will take power in the next election, we’d reading articles about how the current government didn’t do its job and was corrupt. WTH?

When are we going to focus on TODAY, the day which needs fixing?

Goodbye AirAsia

Mauritian social medias are full of disapointment by the fact the AirAsia will stop it’s service in Mauritius soon.

“The suspension of the Mauritius route is a part of the company’s big plan in network restructuring aimed at improving operational efficiencies in term of aircraft utilizations”

There are rumours that this is due to pressure by some Mauritians groups

“the sudden decision could be due to peer pressure by local ethnic groups, lobbying to the authorities in Mauritius to stop the highly successful flights.” –theindependent.sg

As I am a common people, I don’t have the ability to know the real reason behind.

It’s a really sad thing that Middle class Mauritians won’t be able to afford holidays abroad as AirAsia was allowing. Is there anyone to standup for “ti-dimounes”?

Slavery still on in the Employment Rights Act of Mauritius

Stay in your job position for 8 hours. On top of that, add 1 hour more for lunch time. Makes 9 hours in the workplace already.

As the time of writing, February 2017, teleportation has not yet been invented — or at least not that common people know of. It takes around 1 hour to 3 hours to commute to our workplace. Stupid traffic jams. Cherry on the cake, Mauritian Ministers with their escorts have the guts (‘toupe monstre’) to halt other road users so they can drive in our tax-paid BMWs and on our tax-paid roads in front of us while we, uhm, watch them in their dark tinted windows. Why are they in such a hurry to travel to finally do nothing?

The 8 hour work day supposed to be like this (best case scenario):

But in reality, it’s very different:

Lot’s of people do over-times on top of the 8 hour work which further decreases their personal times and sleep. This leads to insomnia, depression.

I believe we have the rights to spend time with our children, energy to setup shop. To summarise, we need time to live!

How many for “30 hour work-week” in Mauritius?
