Auberge in the North of Mauritius

I'd recommend Villa Maria in Trou aux Biches. Very nice and clean room with lots of mirrors :) Used to pay Rs600 for half day; call them up before you go and remember to bring your ID with you.

Do we really need a new Identity Card with biometric technology and our fingerprints on?

lol if you think your identity is being kept safe by NOT having this new ID card in place, your a fool. As soon as you get a phone, a credit card, a bank account, a facebook page, a passport etc you have already surrendered you personal information. Don't kid yourselves, your info is already out there. This card is just another gimmick to store all of it in one place.

In fact if you have ever been to the USA you have to surrender all fingerprints (10 of them) upon arrival at any US airport, no matter who or what nationality you are.

So whats the fuss about this card? Not much because the info it stores is already somewhere out there.

Are the nature parks and shopping places wheelchair friendly in Mauritius?

I would suggest that you check with the staff of La Pirogue hotel in the first place. It is possible that the taxis that serve the hotel might have some drivers whose cabs are adapted for wheelchair passengers. Generally taxi drivers are usually friendly and willing to help. As far as the cost for this type of vehicle, you will have to check in advance and verify with the hotel whether it is afair price. The reception desk might help you regarding cost of taxis adapted or not.

As for the shopping Centre, Bagatelle is very consumer friendly and I have personally seen people in wheelchairs wandering freely within the complex. There are lots of stores whether for souvenir hunting or for general shopping and loads of good restaurants within the complex and all at ground level. As for wheelchairs themselves, I have no idea whether the hotel or the shopping mall in Bagatelle provides them.

Just a word of caution regarding transportation in Mauritius: Buses are not friendly and have no accommodation for wheelchairs. I would advise that you take a taxi for all your trips with the caveat that you do check in advance regarding cost and wheelchair accommodation.

As for the nature parks, most of them do not have accommodation for wheelchairs but with many other places like the Pamplemousse Botanical gardens , you will have no problem whatsoever and you could spend a good day there if you so wish.

I am afraid I cannot advise in a precise way regarding all the places here. Things might have changed since I visited all the different places. Good luck.

Do we really need a new Identity Card with biometric technology and our fingerprints on?

How can the "ruling class" control the "country class"? How does the shepherd keep track of a herd of sheep? And how do biologists keep track of endangered wildlife? Welcome to the new world order my friend! It is part of a great scheme for the evil minority to rule the innocent majority!

This new stuff creates an illusion of security and boast loudly of it being modernism! SO FALSE and UTTER BULLSHIT. Be warned, it is not 4 fingerprints that will be collected, but all 10! Yes, all ten fingers will be scanned, recorded, and stored in this database. Furthermore, facial scanning will done, features as complex as skin grain and texture will also be recorded. I am definitely against this scheme and I won’t register for that new ID. Some are saying that if you have nothing to hide why worry? This is not the issue at all. Well, I guess then you could let the government read your mail, search your house, read your sms, view your skype chat. After all if you have nothing to hide why worry?

Furthermore, do you know what’s more frightening? The government has not given any guarantee nor taken legal measures and frameworks to ensure security! That ICTA thing is a joke, those verbal guarantee that ministers are giving are nothing more than the speech of a politician! Moreover, they are reserving themselves the right of how they are going to use this data in the future – think about sharing, matching, or tracking. Imagine in a near future, you now need this card to get access to hospital, and where your medical records are stored in it or some other database, with sharing between institutions, it will be too easy for them (politicians and influent people) to trace and link your complete history!

Do you know that police or government intelligence secretly take photos of people in public manifestation? (whether pacific or not). Facial recognition will enable to them to immediately recognise you. They won’t even need permission from a judge to do matching! There is a possibility of the ‘secret police’ (one at the service of ruling political party leaders) to potentially have a secret file on you! Go for a job interview in public sector tomorrow or apply for some kind of license, background checks will be so easy, even if you've done nothing legally wrong, it can be discriminatory for you.

In Mauritius nothing has really been done to reinforce and strengthen democracy. Do you remember the Roberston report on media law? (Google, download and read). This could have really upgraded democracy and civil rights. The government refused to implement it and now it must be in an office drawer. You see, when the government is not initiating genuine efforts to improve democracy, manipulates the TV and puts pressure on private radios (democracy’s watchdogs), how can you not doubt and question their real motives? Democracy is still in its baby days in Mauritius, who will rule in the next 20-30 yrs? A dictator? Will it still be a democratic government? You have no idea. So this is like digging your grave!

However, in France, the bio-ID is in use. France is another thing; it’s on another level relative to national security, democracy, illegal immigration and civil rights as compared to Mauritius. This project is too ‘avant-gardiste ’ for us. I won’t even start with the huge cost of this new ID and as I mentioned modernism back, do you know that in 2013, hospitals are giving patients a vulgar ‘baton- mop’ as crutch. Use that money and improve the quality of life of the common Mauritian. Invest in the public busses, improve waste collection for example. Better, they could have invested in tracking bracelets for criminals and recidivistic thugs! No, they won’t, it’s better to have a file on every citizen.

Believe me, there are compromises that can be made concerning this new ID. Bio-data is not necessary unless you plan to use it for something else! Like you have a hidden agenda for instance. I remember a Mauritian lawyer saying it anti- constitutional and against the human rights for someone to take your bio-data without your consent. Only the police reserve the right to do so and only with permission a judge and that’s when you are suspected of crime too! It is also possible for laws voted in the assembly to be anti-constitutional! Mauritius has ratified the convention of human rights and you have the right to object to the collection of your bio-data. For those who really believe in democracy and in civil and individual rights, you have the duty to reject against collection of your bio-data!

Defence of a civillian against abuse of power of the police force

Exercise your inherent right of self defense. You own your life - protect it. Deadly force can be applied both ways. Civil court is always available but costly. Complaint about an abusive cop will go nowhere because of the Blue Brotherhood.

Why are there no proper review of the Bharat Telecom (Mauritius) internet?

BT is looking for a buy out similar to the last company with the same name. This time no one is interested and BT finds itself in an uncomfortable position . They are out for a big loss unless they come out with what they promised I.e fast internet connection and Two scores of tv channels. At present it seems they promised ostrich eggs but are delivering pigeons eggs. Have you heard of the feat of a bombaywallah feeding 25 persons with a single egg omelet. Seems BT is out to do the same.

Why is the Mauritian emergency ambulance service non-effective?

all of you are wrong....before sueing you must know what you are doing.the health sector is free in mauritius.We have got only five samu services in mauritius .if you dont give the proper information,you will not get the service.if the medicalised ambulance is already doing an intervention,,you will not get such services.Many stupid people give false information to have the services of the samu....unfortunately we cant sue them for their bad hadits!!!if you dont get the samu,you have the right to sue,,,,there will be inquiry and since all samu services are connected to GPRS system,you will be able to know wheteher the service were free on any day and time of the year...everything is,,,,before criticizing the samu,,,,be proudto be a Mauritian with a good Government,,,and a good health sytem...if you foreigners just criticise our country because you could not get papers easily to become resident,,,better stay in your European country full of corruption,,,financial crisis,,,and natural disasters sent by God.

Is Kentucky Fried Chicken halal?

I think the question should be asked to KFC themselves. They are not very keen on displaying any certificates nor are they keen in having being certified by a Halal committee in Mauritius like others are doing (debonnairs, steers, nando's port louis among many others). Is there anything they are hiding. Also beware that an oulet with a halal logo does not automatically mean halal food are served. Rely only on certificates from the Jummah Masjid or the Halaal Research Committee. I have heard an example where a person was displaying the halal certificate of the slaughter house from where he buys chicken but he actually added wine to fried rice. Please be very careful.

My friend is the wife of a mauritian citizen, she is a foreigner, and is living here on permanent residency but not yet acquired the MRU citizenship. Her husband says that it is illegal for her to open an sole/individual bank account in MRU because she is the wife of a government employee of Government of Mauritius. Is this true or just a misleading statement.

Mauritius Telecom / Orange slow internet connection issues

Guys, I have given up on MT long time, go for either DCL (Alice ) or Bharat, when MT will start losing their customers they will then realise.
The service with ALICE DCL is quite stable now, though some hick ups from time to time, but generally it is much better than MT. Recently somebody I know just connected to ALICE in MOKA as there is no MT and ADSL is only 512k.

I heard a lot of good feedback on Bharat, as they are connected with Fibre now to SAFE and LION.

How can Madagascar have faster internet than Mauritius which is supposed to be a cyber island. In Madagascar on WIFI you could get a speed of around 50mbps easily and upload around 10MBPS.

This is all thanks to the OLD politicians in the government who do not want to leave, without any vision whatsoever for this island, where it has to go and how to drive economic growth. Bharat can easily offer around 100mbps but I understand this is all controlled by the government pricing etc. Good luck to us all who has to put up with all this crap.

He tends to tell people things which are already known but which are generally ignored. Eating good foods, being disciplined, organize one's life, exercising, breathe properly be calm; all of these are simple and yet people are too busy to put them into practice.
