  4. If you add to the rising prices of petrol the plan to make the autoroute payantes then it looks to me like it is going to be expensive to run a car here. However, do you really have a choice considering the public transport problems?


  5. Like I always say, we are the ones at fault…we voted for the A Holes at the head of the country. As young people, maybe we should change the system. I for one never vote for the ones usually in power, because they are all bullshit!!!

    Once more I say it, Ministers don’t care about our problem with high petrol or diesel price because they get it for free! Why don’t they start paying for that? They should contribute in the economy of the country by paying for that!!! It’s not fair that their whole family gets free transport for 5 whole years while we have to pay the high price…

    Yashvin, you are good at numbers, so try calculate the expenses of one Minister per year for petrol or Diesel…let’s see how much they are taking advantage of our poor situation…

    Bloody country!!! pff!!! WE really should get some revolution starting!


  6. 1. Public transport dan bez here….So in a way we have no choice
    2. Pou alle port louis matin, take you from 45mins up to 1h30mins (best/worst case)….lor la add to slow bus…mo prefer take the car
    3.We pay a good sum of money each year for better roads…but do we really get them? lol planning….si seulment ti ena planning, pa ti pou burn sa kantiter essence la = pa ti pou bzn import sa kantiter la = nu ti pou gagniant m…dommage

    Yeah, most people here don’t care as long as they are left in peace. However what they do not realise is that one day everything will just crumble and they will be left with nothing. At the pace we are going, Mauritius will be sold to some very powerful family or country and we shall be slaves…

    Hotels are being built here and there..foreigners are buying land and properties here, they are investing millions if not billions…do you think they will let it all go? Oh no! They will certainly make us slave and die at their feet…trust me on that…if we do not chnge things…


  8. why they kill the man who invented the water engine ??? it will save us in fuel…. now some country test h20 hydrogen ….. which is more dangerous that normal fuel… for me they are zero not hero here in mru …

    @ ReenaDKL yeah this is terrible …. but we must live !!!


  9. Maybe its a good incentive to get the country to go green now. Think about ways of travelling, consuming less energy and all that. I know that old habits are hard to crush down in mauritius but just imagine what it would be for example to have a company with a fleet of 10 taxis (a bit like the taxi marron we are used to) running only, say, Prius cars. These would cost less than using the bus per person, better comfort for 4 persons and greener.


  10. Traveling in those bus which are as clean as Mare chicoze dumping area is really awesome. And also, without forgetting the everyday racing competition on the roads while the police officers watching as crazy chickens! !


  11. @ Tushal be positive man,u cant changed the way of ppls … competitions rule in all field… try to live ….what all of us do…
