Is there anyone who gives a toss about noise pollution in this country?
It seems that having a nice, peaceful evening is more of a utopia than ever in Mauritius, especially for us, inhabitants of Emerald Park Trianon. Indeed, no-one is above the law, we are made to believe.

The PSSA was set up to regulate private secondary schools following the decision taken in December 1976 – on the eve of the general elections, by the way – to provide free secondary education to all children who pass the primary school leaving examination. This was a political decision without looking into all the aspects – mainly infrastructural, managerial and  financial – of implementing such an important decision. But, after serious teething problems were addressed, the challenge was met and the sector is today well regulated. We can still learn from the trials and tribulations of the PSSA before it settled down.

Dear Prime Minister,
I am writing today because I have lost confidence and faith in the institution I am working for - the Dr A.G. Jeetoo Hospital and consequently the Ministry of Health and Quality of Life. On 6 October 2012, the Regional Health Director made a press statement saying that absenteeism among male and female nurses is 28% and 13% on night shift mostly among female nurses. I thank him for this precious information.

A fifth colleague had been convicted of falsifying her sick leave certificate. Not to mention the uncountable cases of bribery, malingering and frauds.

We are sure you are reaching great heights in your present Ministry as was the case in previous ones. Memories of your passages in the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Commerce are timeless. Alas, the road to achievement is dotted with many tempting parking places.
