Leaders need to be closer to their people

Leaders need to be closer to their people ( Seychelles President James Michel has visited the community of Anse Etoile this morning, as part of a series of district visits. The President was accompanied by Minister for Community Development, Youth and Sports Minister Vincent Meriton and officials from the Office of the President.

The President visited the La Retraite Home for the Elderly and met with the board of trustees of the home and the chairman of the board Mrs. Anne Desire, as well as the district administrator Ms. Aselma Pilate and the chief executive officer for social services Mrs. Jacqueline Pierre.

The President also visited the homes of several families and businesses, including a mechanic, a timber trader, as well as a Chinese-food restaurant “Golden Moon.” The visit concluded at Anse Etoile Market where the President spoke with fishermen and farmers.

“We must not forget the important contribution of our elderly to the development of our country. We need to ensure that they are recognized for their role in our society and ensure that they are comfortable,” said President Michel after visiting the La Retraite Home of the Elderly.

The President said that he was disappointed with certain conditions in the home but that improvements were planned by the management.

“I am glad to see that work has started to improve their situation. I was pleased to speak with the residents and very moved by their affection and lively interaction.”

The President said that many Anse Etoile residents had written letters to him, asking him to visit their district and to see the way it is developing and the challenges they are experiencing.

The President called upon the district authorities and the Member of the National Assembly representing the district to consider the difficulties the district is facing.

“I have spoken to a lot of frustrated residents who want to see more development in their district. I have seen today some of the problems experienced by residents at Anse Etoile, and I hope that in the future that leaders in the community will become more attentive to the problems that the residents are faced with.”

The President also said that the Anse Etoile Police Station needed to be more active and ensure the security of the area and remove the drug problem from the streets of the district.
