Our PM dancing a sega at Le Morne

Note : This post is not meant to be funny, but just to show that, our Prime Minister, Navin Ramgoolam, is a mauritian just like any of us, and he did not hesitate to dance a sega live, at Le Morne during a cultural show following the inclusion of Le Morne in the UNESCO World Heritage List..

Read the official communique from the Govt Online Portal on the incusion of Le Morne…
This is the 2nd site of Mauritius in this list, the first being the Aappravasi Ghat, Port Louis…

To celebrate this ‘victory’ of Mauritius, a show was organised today (10th August 2008), which started by an official ceremony, followed by the show, hosted by Linzy Bacbotte.

At one instance, the prime minister was getting ready to leave Le Morne, and Linzy Bacbotte said:

“Hey monsieur premier ministre, kotte ou p aller?”

lol, she got down from the stage, ran towards the prime minister with her mike!

She kindy asked the prime minister to dance a sega, after which the Prime Minister, the Minister of Arts and Culture Mahen Gowreesoo, the Chairperson of the “Le Morne Trust Fund” and herself went back to the stage where all of them danced on a sega, sang live by Serge Lebrasse…

I dont think that you will be able to view this part of the event on the national television MBC, so, just in case, here is it, recorded with my mobile…(and with comments from mum, sister who didnt know that i was shooting that video)

Any ridiculous comments will be deleted… Thanks…

    This would not affect those who write responsibly, with a valid name n email address, unlike others who invent name, email address and offending, silly words…

    Afta all, he got wat he wanted.

    But hey, for his age, he dances much betta than old me… guess all those late night parties paid off….

  • @Ashvin : lol, thnks… btw, not the first head to dance? does someone knows who else did dance earlier? In mauritius i mean…

  • Well that was really a nice act from the Prime Minister of not considering himself as some1 too great to dance… It was nice to see that he does not consider himself different from the others…

  • yumn

    Dear All,

    seeing a PM dancing is certainly now wrong. You just have to know that this forms part of Political Communication. In other words, Politicians imitate the popular culture in order to get these people to trust in his act and behaviour and to adopt his as one of theirs….

    Best Regards


  • @yumn: Could you please give us some more information about this please? I am sure, u got more to say as a comms student…isnt it?
    So, was it something like illegal for what he did on the stage or was it only ethically incorrect?

    Thnks in advance…

  • jt

    La démagogie (du grec demos « le peuple » et ago : « conduire ») est une notion politique et rhétorique désignant l’art de mener le peuple en s’attirant ses faveurs, notamment en utilisant un discours simpliste, occultant les nuances, utilisant son charisme et dénaturant la vérité…:D

  • jt

    C ceki mone post en haut ki Yumm ine rode dire d apres moi..:P

  • Mel

    alor ke votre pm fait la fete le pays coule!! pa mal ca pm la ..li met so nissa alor ki le peuple p souffert!!!

  • Well friends,
    I think this post was not about the country or watever… It was just about the dance of the PM at Le Morne… so i think u better talk about that… Coz the country and the government is another issue… So just do not try to change the direction of the post… 🙂

  • Kozaaaa…nu pm la kpv dne lesson dance sega sa!! 🙂

  • Eh i though he was dancing MACARENA 🙂 lol c bon c bon mr the prime minister..de danser un ti peux lol

  • It was funny. Hey, he is way better @ dancing sega than most Mauritians.
    I watched the show and was impressed by Linzy – she truly made the show more lively. Kudos to her.

    Regardless of whether or not it’s part of a scheme (so says the common crowd) to fool Mauritians (whateverrrr), I for one, enjoyed the show.

    @ Mel- did you enjoy the olympics ceremony? you sure did shut the frak up about tibet while watching, right? Le Morne show was entertaining and people enjoyed it. Shut the frak up about “pays couler etc.”
