When the Local Government Bill was voted at the National Assembly on Wednesday 7 December 2011, nobody believed that, included in the new Bill, were some provisions likely to create a stir among politicians. It was all about the realignment of municipal wards. Since then, the MSM came alive with new proposals, the MMM became vociferous and the President of the Republic greener than usual. As for Dr Navin Ramgoolam, he was clear at the summing up of debates on the Bill: those who are not satisfied could still go to the President for redress.  Sir Anerood Jugnauth is presently consulting all stakeholders to find a consensus on the matter.

Case Noyale – A tourist hub

Case Noyale has derived its name from the hospitality of a retired soldier called Pierre Marie Ls Normand (1721-1802). He owned a large plot of land due to service rendered to the French East India Company and later to the Royal government. He was a great philanthropist and his hospitality to travellers and visitors was no secret to anybody. He tendered all sorts of help to them. He had built near his house a small ‘Royale case’ to entertain them and this was later distorted to Case Noyale. Some say that a certain Mr Noyale had some influence in that area and the village was accordingly named.

Rumours have it that in Mauritius people would rather opt for bouncers rather than contact the police to resolve any dispute that they might have with others. Their presence at Bars, Clubs and other venues doors in slick suits, in a way gives them the licence to solve matters in whatever way they deem correct and still groove to the beat of the music. It is said that those including policemen who have had brushes with these bouncers come out the worse. Is the bouncer culture or “security” as some would call it, a new phenomenon in Mauritius? Are bouncers and security teams really a force to reckon with?
