Sometimes God performs miracles in front of our very eyes but either we can’t see them or we refuse to.

Equally, some people have a privileged access to God and their prayers are answered sooner than the rest of us.

Grand Anse Mahe MNA Waven William is one so blessed.On Friday evening, after he had announced on the last day of the 6th National Assembly that he was no longer a member of the United Seychelles party, William claimed he had no idea what he would be doing.

He said he would seek the help of God as he searched for an answer on the way forward.

Lo and behold, barely 48 hours later he was endorsed as the new LDS candidate for Grand Anse. We’ve been told we will eventually be informed if any money changed hands, but for now we can only assume it was Divine intervention.
