UN Secretary General BAN KI MOON, NEW MOON and MERCURY

seen in Mauritius on 08 May 2016

UN Secretary General, His Excellency BAN KI MOON, has set foot in the Republic of Mauritius at 17.30 hours local time on Sunday 08 May 2016. He is on an official tour in the South-West Indian Ocean, namely Seychelles, Mauritius and Madagascar. After the UN Jet landed at Plaisance Airport, he was welcomed by the Prime Minister of Mauritius, Sir Anerood Jugnauth and his wife. His Excellency was greeted with all official protocols-red carpet, 21 canon shots, military parade and salute. He was, then, introduced to members of the Mauritian National Assembly, and dignitaries.


 In his first speech delivered at the banquet hosted by the Prime Minister, UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon praised the achievements of Mauritius in terms of politico-socio-economic development. He was pleased to see that Mauritius achieved the status of "upper-middle-income country…continues to maintain its position as the most competitive country in Sub- Saharan Africa…Mauritius has so much to offer to the world, in particular to Africa, in the way it promotes peace, maintains unity and manages the diversity of its people. Mauritius may be a Small Island Developing State…I have seen almost during ten years as Secretary General, the power and voice of the small countries who have big impacts and have often helped make a breakthrough in many difficult negotiations starting form Sendia Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction in March and Addis Ababa Action Agenda to provide financing mechanisms for all the SDG’s financing."


His Excellency Ban Ki-Moon reiterated almost the same Mauritian achievements during his meeting with the press: local and international.

"Mauritius social welfare system is a model for others…I am confident that Mauritius’s leadership role and impressive socio-economic performance will also be instrumental in promoting women economic empowerment and for strengthening gender equality."


During the meeting with the UN Secretary General at Treasury Building on Monday 09 May 2016, Prime Minister Sir Anerood Jugnauth stated that Mauritius is not obtaining finance from the UN, as the Republic has achieved the status of ‘upper-middle-economy’. So, the latter requested His Excellency that this be revised.


In his speech, HE Ban Ki-Moon said: "UN had broken the record for the highest number of countries to sign any treaty or convention in one day when world leaders gathered at UN Headquarters on 22 April to sign the Paris Agreement on climate change... Mauritius was one of them, and you went on to become the 16th country to ratify immediately as you signed this agreement. That was a demonstration of great commitment for humanity...

Mauritius may be on the frontline of climate change but is also on the frontline of climate actions. He congratulated Mauritius for not only signing the treaty but also ratifying the Paris Agreement on Climate Change on the same day. You are setting an example for the world. Going forward Mauritius will have a key role to play in ensuring implementation of this important agreement."


While launching, on Monday 09 May 2016, the Post Office First Day Cover on the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, he said:

“As a nation on the forefront of meeting the sustainable development challenge and climate action Mauritius is well placed to be an example to the world.



UN SG stated: "We will continue to look to the experience of Mauritius. We will learn from your approaches to integrate the economic, environmental and social dimensions of development. And we will support you every step of the way,” 





This reflected what UN SG mentioned in Seychelles a few hours earlier, as reported by Dianne Penn:

[Climate action and sustainable development are a matter of survival for small island states like the Seychelles, the UN Secretary-General said on Sunday.


In a speech to the country's National Assembly, Ban Ki-moon also praised the contribution these countries have made to global efforts to address climate change.


Mr Ban spoke about "the universal project" of achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that seek to create a healthy planet where all people live in dignity.

He said the 17 goals are interconnected and cannot be carried out in isolation.

"But for island states, climate action and sustainable development are a matter of survival. They are two mutually reinforcing sides of the same coin. Storms, coastal erosion and rising sea levels can halt and reverse sustainable development initiatives in a matter of hours or days. SDG goal 14 on conserving and using oceans and marine resources for sustainable development carries particular resonance for you."

The UN chief said small island states like the Seychelles have served as "a magnifying lens" for many of the climate and development issues that all nations must face.

He said their experiences, commitment and insights have been "invaluable" in global discussions on climate change.]

The 23rd Congress meeting on International Commercial Arbitration, held for the first time in Mauritius, took place on Monday 09 May at Swami Vivekanand International Convention Centre, Pailles. More than 800 local and international participants attended the event. Prime Minister Sir Anerood Jugnauth mentioned that:

"the government of Mauritius was the first to sign the convention and to ratify the ambitious project to make Mauritius a centre of excellence for international arbitration. .. Africa remained underrepresented both in terms of arbitrators who decide cases and the lawyers who argue them. Mauritius hopes to play an important part in redressing that situation."


As the Chief Guest, UN S/G Ban Ki-Moon said: "Arbitration is only possible when there is a sound legislative framework supported by the relevant infrastructure. Mauritius has developed that framework and infrastructure quickly over the past ten years… It has played the key role".



NB: While His Excellency was busy in his programmes in Mauritius, Egypt was struck by a terrorist attack on Sunday 08 May 2016, wherein eight police officers were killed. According to the UN Press release:

[9 May 2016 – United NationsSecretary-GeneralBan Ki-moon today condemned the deadly terrorist attack in Cairo, Egypt, on Sunday, which reportedly killed eight police officers, his spokesperson said.

“The Secretary-General conveys his condolences to the families of the victims and to the Government of Egypt,” said UN Spokesperson Stéphane Dujarric.

“The United Nations stands firmly with the people of Egypt in their fight against terrorism,” he added.]




Social Meetings

The University of Mauritius conferred His Excellency Ban Ki-Moon DR HONORIS CAUSA on 09 May. In his address to the Youth of Mauritius he uttered a few words in Kreol- local popular language: “mo bien kontan visit sa zoli pei Moris.”

He continued: “Raise your voice, challenge your leaders and make your leaders accountable for your future. You have prerogative rights to raise your voice.”


UN S/G had lunch on same day with the President of Republic Dr. Mrs. Ameenah Gurib-Fakim at the State House, Le Réduit.


Furthermore, he received the Chief Justice Kesor Matadeen, the Speaker of the National Assembly Mrs. Maya Hanoomanjee and the Leader of Opposition Honourable Paul Raymond Bérenger.


His Excellency Ban Ki-Moon paid tribute, today Tuesday 10 May, to the

  • Apravasi Ghat- UNESCO World Heritage Site for Indian Indentured Labourers since 2006 and found at Trou Fanfaron near the Harbour of Port Louis.
  • He then also visited Le Morne Cultural Landscape UNESCO World Heritage Site for Slavery, inscribed since 2008.


The Mission of UN Secretary General ends today 10 May 2016, but is expected to continue to Madagascar this afternoon.

Remarks and Comments

The current alliance government of Mauritius obtained a clear-cut mandate of absolute majority from the population in the general elections of 10 December 2014. It was the hope of the populace to clean up the mismanagement of the affairs of the state in terms of frauds, corruptions, financial scandals, laisser-faire and social evils broiled and cooked by the outgoing government of Nuvinchandra Ramgoolam.


Sir Anerood Jugnauth’s government is entangled in the workload inherited from the predecessor. Besides, the Prime Minister is under the burden of alleged fraud cases of his first Finance Minister Honourable Luchmeenaraidoo and of that of the Minister of Environment and of Disaster Management (who stepped down on 23 March marking the World Meteorological Day and also celebrating the Holi Festival of Victory of Good over Evil.) In addition, his own son, Leader of the MSM, is waiting for his final verdict from the Supreme Court following allegation of Fraud. Furthermore, one or two back-benchers have shown disagreement on some issues. Finally, one PPS is under charge of homicide related to a road accident.


The Government Agenda of Vision 2030, through which the ‘Second Economic Miracle’ is expected to be realised, is finding difficulty to take-off. Lots of strategies are being  devised, amongst others, for obtaining partnership with Dubai for the development of the Port and infrastructural investment is being sought with Saudi Arabia. Other assistance in air connections with Asia and Africa have started. All these seem to open opportunities to the unemployed doctors, graduates and other professionals who are currently jobless and also desperate.


The coming of UN SG Ban Ki-Moon is the result of Sir Anerood Jugnauth’s invitation done when they both met at the Un Sustainable Development Summit in New York on 02 October 2015. The signings and ratifications of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, of the COP 21, of the Sustainable Development Goals (a rebirth of the Millennium Development Goals) and the passing of the Disaster Risk Reduction Act last month constitute other strategies for the realisation of the ‘Second Economic Miracle’.


The questions arising are:

  1. Why the ‘13 October Disaster Risk Reduction Day’ and the ‘23 March World Meteorological Day’ have not been marked by the present government since its coming into power during the last 16 months?
  2. The ‘Country-Driven Mechanisms’ are geared towards the ‘People-Centred Concept’, thereby engaging in the process of building a Disaster Resilient Society. Why these are still lagging behind, despite Funds are being mobilised by France, EU, UNDP, IOC, China, Japan, India and others?
  3. The Government of Mauritius has already adhered to dozens of International Protocols and Conventions, how far those ratified recently will be adopted and implemented ‘in toto’?
  4. How far the expected UNFCC funds will be used properly, efficiently and transparently? 
  5. What Innovation and Dynamism Strategies are expected to be carried out for Providing Safety and Protection of Life of the 'Disaster Illiterate' population?
  6. To what extent the Policy Makers of Mauritius, including others, foster their mind-set in the fact that Economic Resilience and Sustainable Development depend to a large extent on Disaster Resilience? 

You should have noticed that all these loopholes, amongst others, have been mentioned across various articles in this Website, namely regarding the Meteorological Services and the Disaster Management of Mauritius.


BAN 's Divine Mission

The role of  UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon , during his two consecutive mandates, has made of him as a Model for all Leaders in the quest of taking actions in favour of Humanitarian Affairs. He honoured, relentlessly, happily and with great humility, all his overloaded scheduled programme during his journey in Mauritius.



The arrival of this Universal Citizen was marked under the glow of the New Moon. The hope for enlightenment seems to be assured. See picture taken in the evening of Sunday 08 May 2016.



Moreover, when His Excellency was busy Planet Mercury transited in front of the Sun. This was visible between 15.12 and 17.44 hours in the sky around Mauritius. This Astral Event takes place only 13 times in 100 years, as per astronomers.


Sir Anerood already celebrated his 86th Birthday on 29 March last  and his mandate will end in December 2019.  Ban Ki-Moon will celebrate his 72nd Birthday on 13 June next and his term of office will terminate in December 2016. UN Secretary General transited to Mauritius while starting from Seychelles for his journey to Madagascar. Will the Sun of SAJ witness another transit of BAN? One thing is possible, that Mauritius is likely to be highlighted in the international cartography.

For the time being, it is noteworthy that the Anti-Cyclone in the South Pole is generating sea swells and robust wind in Mauritius. In addition, Winter Season has entered the Tropic of Capricorn. We are all controlled by the forces of Nature and of the Universe.
