More than half of Madagascar MPs suspected of corruption: enquiry

Madagascar's anti-corruption agency has begun legal action against more than half of the country's parliamentary deputies who are suspected of taking bribes, just two weeks ahead of legislative elections, a source said Friday. After a year-long enquiry, a dossier on 79 MPs was sent to the prosecutor's office this week «to begin legal action against the accused», the source told AFP. The prosecutor is now expected to examine the dossier and announce whether some or all of the parliamentarians involved will be charged. Madagascar's President Andry Rajoelina has pledged to fight corruption in the Indian Ocean island nation, a former French colony. Graft affects every level of society in one of the world's poorest countries which ranks 155 out of 180 on Transparency International's corruption perception index. Critics say graft seeps into infrastructure projects, the judicial system and even the African nation's illicit rosewood trade as bureaucrats take their cut for services or from business deals. Last year the corruption problem came to a head when parliamentary deputies supportive of then president Hery Rajaonarimampianina put forward a bill to reform electoral law, just months ahead of last year's presidential election. The bill was criticised by Rajoelina and Marc Ravalomanana -- both former presidents who were running for the top office again -- who accused the head of state of attempting to change the rules in his own favour. The opposition accused some deputies of accepting the equivalent of 12,500 euros ($14,000) to vote for the law changes, during a secret meeting at a luxury hotel in a suburb of the capital Antananarivo. The anti-corruption body then opened an enquiry into the 79 deputies, out of the total of 151 in the national assembly, who voted in favour of the electoral reform. The constitutional court eventually annuled part of the new electoral changes amid a political crisis built up by two months of opposition protests. All those under suspicion are from Rajaonarimampianina's camp. If found guilty they face up to five years in jail for receiving unjustified remuneration in the exercise of their duties. Only a handful of those targeted are seeking a new mandate in the parliamentary election on May 27. Rajaonarimampianina was beaten in the first round of last year's presidential vote which Rajoelina won, beating Ravalomanana in the second-round vote. © Agence France-Presse

Two Seychellois have returned home after spending two years as missionaries in South Africa and Lesotho with the Operational Mobilisation (OM) team.

As part of their mission, Achille and Annielle Confiance had to conduct outreach programmes in different communities. The couple, who are from the Pentecostal Assembly of Seychelles, had to also train others who can help the less fortunate. “We had to go into communities especially in those with the most in need. It was like a door to door exercise. Sometimes we had to stay with a family for weeks. We prayed with them and we helped them the way we could,” said Achille. Achille, Anielle and other volunteers from the Operational Mobilisation visited schools as well. (Achille Confiance) Photo License: CC-BY “One great experience was in Lesotho. The place is a bit like Seychelles long ago. We had to cook food using traditional ways such as getting wood for the fire and cutting down the chicken neck to use as utensils. We also had to use pit latrines. For us Seychellois, it was not a problem, but it was nice to see how the young Europeans were adapting to the situation,” said Achille. The couple also faced adversities that may have had cost them their lives. “There was a critical moment in Lesotho where we were faced with danger. I think it was a misunderstanding. We were in the street working and Annielle was taking pictures. A guy from her back raised a sharp tool to hit her, but luckily someone from our group saw the man and was able to remove Annielle out of harm’s way on time,” recounted Achille.  The couple spent time in different communities all over including in Limpopo - a northern province of South Africa. Achille said that he got involved in many physical activities such as digging trenches for sewerage to help the community.

A day after, it started to rain and they said that we had brought a blessing. They asked us to come and pray with and for them,” said Annielle.   Annielle said being a missionary is not easy. “You have to satisfy yourself every day with what you are provided with by other people through the will of God. We had even experienced moments where we had to return some commodities on the shelves while shopping. Despite the hardship, we had some interesting moments as well,” said Annielle. The Operational Mobilisation (OM) is an international Christian mission and has been working in South Africa since 1986. To date, there are approximately 6,000 volunteers with the organisation.
