About us

Launched in August 2014, The Seychelles Independent is a no-nonsense weekly newspaper that tackles every issue in the country, good or bad, within fear, favour or preference. Which is why our motto, emblazoned on our masthead, is “Seychellois People before Individuals” We speak for people who want their voices to be heard, don’t have a door to knock on, can’t get answers from authorities, or are given the run-around by many offices, public or private. Our strength lies in the fact that we are not affiliated with any political party, and we fact-check every story we publish.
