“The time is up for those involved in corrupt practices”, warned Judge Duncan Gaswaga.

He made the stern statement in his capacity as the Chairman of the Anti-Corruption Commission while formally launching the commission’s mission. The members of the commission convened on Thursday 29th September to establish the modalities of the commission’s operations.

Judge Gaswaga stressed that the commission intends to fulfil its mandate albeit the challenges. “The commission is going to make it extremely difficult if not impossible for any person to live on or enjoy the proceeds of corruption or ill gotten wealth. We shall even be move in court for orders of confiscation and forfeiture to the government for monies and properties acquired illegally.”

The new Anti-Corruption Commission was appointed late last year.

Judge Gaswaga went on to describe the Anti-Corruption Commission ‘as a tool or vehicle you will use to fight injustice and get justice’ and its commissioners as ‘mere servants of the people.

He called on all people of Seychelles to support the commission in its noble cause.


Following predictions of reduced rainfall in the upcoming rainy season, the Public Utilities Corporation is calling on members of the public to conserve water.

The country’s dams, La Gogue and Rochon are currently at 67 and 68 percent capacity respectively. The levels are depleting rapidly due to the ongoing dry season. The PUC has gone as far as to describe the levels in some source rivers as alarming.

In spite of the continuous depletion, the Managing Director for Water and Sewage, Steve Mussard says PUC is still supplying water on a 24 hour basis. “This is the improvement that PUC has made over the years on the distribution network and our treatment plants which have allowed us to have certain flexibility in the operations meaning we can transfer water where it’s available to places where it’s not available.”

The PUC is calling on the public to use the precious resource responsibly. “There are a lot of uncertainties in the months to come so we need to find ways to provide water to the public and conserve the stock of water that we have in the dam.”

PUC has warned that if the dry spell persists in the coming days, restrictions will be placed in certain places to manage the stock.

The figure marks 10% increase from the same period last year. The Chief Executive Officer of the Seychelles Tourism Board, Mrs. Sherin Francis has expressed the STB’s enthusiasm with the number of arrivals.

“It’s the second year in a row that we are actually in a very good growth. Last year we registered 19% and while we notice also that our competitors have not done as well during these past 2 years. I am happy with the result and I know it’s not been only the work of STB. It’s been a collective work with all of our trade partners, airline partners, hotels, embassies and travel agents. We all have collectively played our part in having this positive result in terms of our tourism industry for this year.”
