Gay Marriage in Mauritius? It’s Their Right.

Gay Marriage in Mauritius, do you think it’s for the near future? We are not pro-gays and neither against them but we do believe that everyone has the right to have his own choice and live life the way he wants. The United States’ President, Barack Obama, made huge political and social waves last week by announcing he supports marriage between gay couples. In a country supposedly based on freedom of beliefs, the announcement went over like a lead balloon on a calm day. Obviously there were supporters, and there were just as many people ready to march in the ...

Rélancement du Football à Maurice

Depuis déjà plus d’une décennie nous attendons le rélancement du football Mauricien. Mais malgré les efforts louables du MFA (Mauritius Football Association) et du ministère de la jeunesse et des sports, les résultats sont très médiocres. Seulement une vingtaine spectateurs dans les stades pour chaque match et une centaine quand le transport vers le lieu du match est gratuit: Allons-nous vers la mort du foot mauricien? Devons-nous attendre les jeux des iles et que notre équipe nationale se qualifie pour la finale pour qu’on montre un intérêt au foot mauricien. Pourquoi l’importance au foot mauricien a pris une courbe descendante ...
