Wednesday 1st October is observed as the International Day for the Elderly. The theme chosen by the United Nations this year is: ‘Leaving No One Behind- Promoting a Society for All.’ In this context, News on Sunday wants to share with its readers the contribution of our elders in the development of Mauritius and the challenges and fears they are facing in their daily life. The president of the Club ‘Le Flamboyant’, Vir Mulloo, a former government chief executive, gives us a clear picture of the current situation.

The other parties : What are their plans ?

The two big alliances are now done after much hammering on the anvil. On one side the ‘on’ and ‘off’ episode is over and serious things seem to have started since the signing of the agreement between Labour and the MMM on Saturday 20 September.
The conversion project of the national ID card has reached its end point with more than 895,000 persons having gone through the exercise even though it cost them some time and patience.
Pravind Jugnauth called the press on Wednesday to present himself as the new Leader of the Opposition.

The Labour-MMM : Sharing of Power

After three months of wrangling with ‘ON’ and ‘OFF’ attitudes, the Prime Minister and the Leader of the Opposition have been able to come to terms on modalities and the sharing of power and responsibilities, and presented their accord to the press at Clarisse House on Saturday 6 September 2014.
Jonathan Drew is the new British High Commissioner in Mauritius. He presented his credentials to the President of the Republic two weeks ago. He hosted a reception at Westminster House on Thursday 4 September to better know the big players of the Mauritian society. News on Sunday asked him a few questions, so as to know what the priorities on his agenda are.
Ben Buntipilly is at the head of the Special Road Safety Unit, placed under the direct supervision of the Prime Minister’s Office, for the past four years. He claims success in the implementation of his projects so much so that Mauritius, he says, is the best among African countries. However, he is quick to claims that there is still a long way to go and that one of the first steps taken for this long journey is the setting up of a state of the art drivers training centre. News on Sunday met the Special Adviser of the Prime Minister on road safety in his office and asked him the reasons for so many deaths on our roads.
Memories of the 45th anniversary of the Great Alfateh Revolution (1st September 1969) come to our mind just like the capture and killing of Colonel Khadafi on 20 October 2011. On this occasion, we just want to remind our readers that when Muammar made his revolution in 1969, not a drop of blood was shed despite the poverty of the Libyan people – he ruled for more than 40 years until Libya became a rich country. In February 2011, the West with the complicity of some Libyan merceneries toppled the regime and destroyed the country, killing alongside the Guide and burying him at an unknown place.
International Youth Day was celebrated on 12 August, as designated by the United Nations General Assembly in 1999.

This year the celebrations were placed under the theme: ‘Youth and Mental Health’, with activities organised in various parts of the country.
