Le prix et le danger des chiens de race

Pour commencer, j’aimerais souligner que je ne suis pas un éleveur, mais un passionné de la race canine et propriétaire d’un berger allemand. Comment des personnes peuvent-elles trouver que le prix de vente des chiens de race est exorbitant?? Savent-elles ce qu’il coûte d’entretenir ces chiens??

Crime and punishment

The number of atrocious murders committed since the beginning of 2015 is beyond logic. Crimes are on the increase and yet society tends to be complacent about it, as if it is part of our culture. Is capital punishment the solution to curb the rising crime rate in the country?

Warning

On one point Arvind Boolell is right. Without real evidence you cannot throw people’s name just for the sake of a warning. If the PM has serious ground to believe that Rama Valayden is behind some if the incidents which occurred in the South, he should go straight to the…

Le problème du crédit

Le problème des crédits à Maurice est que les clients ne sont pas bien informés. Un exemple : on prend un crédit et on nous annonce un taux d’intérêt. On nous donne même le montant de ce que nous devons repayer pendant toute la durée du prêt. Mais, au moment…

Reduce unwanted dogs

A “campagne de sensibilisation” has been announced by the ministry of Agro-industry. It's going to be a total and utter waste of public money. The basic fact is that there are too many irresponsible dog owners that need to be brought in line.

Réglementer le sexe

Tant que la prostitution sera vue par certains comme une horreur, elle se déroulera toujours dans des endroits mal famés et créera encore plus de problèmes, notamment au niveau de l’insécurité.

Do our kids lie ?

Often we say, “My kid is saying this. How can s/he lie? Kids never lie.” I cannot say if once upon a time kids never lied or not. But nowadays, kids lie. They lie very often. Now question must be asked why do kids lie?

We must support the Comoros

The decision of the Comoros to pull out of the Indian Ocean Island Games in the face of colonial mind games should not only be applauded but also supported, especially by Mauritius. Both nations are suffering firsthand from unscrupulous colonialist greed and self-interest. The Comoros have been stripped by the…

Unsolved crimes

No crime is perfect and no criminal should get away with blue murder. But in Mauritius we have had so many unsolved crimes. What’s wrong with our system? Does our police have enough technology and expert knowledge to elucidate these crimes?
