Two former magistrates challenge SAJ and Ramgoolam Featured

Written by
Two magistrates have resigned from the judiciary to enter politics. Both are standing as candidates for the first time in the very fiefdom of the opposing leaders. It’s a major and daring step in their lives but Soodesh Callichurn and Raj Pentiah nonetheless trust their convictions. The fact that their opponents are none other than of Navin Ramgoolam and SAJ respectively does not dwindle their enthusiasm.

Electoral campaign : Craze for social media Featured

Written by
It is no secret that for this year’s electoral campaign, the major alliances have adopted different approaches. The two big parties of the island together with other small parties as well as activists have seized the social media to do their campaigns. Through daily news, video clips, sound clips and caricatures among others, politicians are on social networks like never before, trying to convince as many people as possible.
It’s a first for the Mauritius Broadcasting Corporation (MBC). Its journalists have been banned from covering any activities (door to door, meetings, congress) of the Alliance Lepep.
The constitution of a Second Republic as proposed by the Labour-MMM Alliance has raised controversy among political parties, the civil society and opinion leaders. In this context, News on Sunday has sought the views of Catherine Boudet, a sharp observer of our political system. She compares the local proposal with the French system.
In 15-years’ time, Generation Y or millennials, will make up the majority of the workforce, be it in public or private sectors. This new generation of employees is however unlike its predecessors. Having a different view of the world, they have redefined the meaning of success both on personal and professional levels, leading to misunderstandings among the different generations working together. Therefore, are they truly ready for the workforce or should we rather ask whether the workforce is ready for them?

Summer School 2014

Written by
Summer School Programme 2014 kicked off for STDs III and IV pupils on Tuesday. This time again, 27 schools across the island have been chosen for this programme. These schools are usually found in disadvantaged areas and/ or areas of poverty with most of the schools already part of the Zone d’Education Prioritaire (ZEP). 
Tropical fruits in Mauritius are available in abundance all over the year. However, this summer season, some fruits such as mangoes, lychees and watermelon are more popular and therefore a lucrative business for planters and fruit vendors. If the climatic conditions this year favoured the production of some tropical fruits, for others however, the presence of bats and crows remains a threat to a good harvest.
