Over more than 150 years, Madagascans have most likely favoring no other money coin but the "Tsangan' Olona." This basically French third republic originated coin survived extinction on foreign soil for having escaped the fate of the piaster divided over and over again, the currency used by the time on the vassalized Great Isle. It took the colonial power a law back in 1916 to put the 5 franks banknotes through. The Tsangan' Olona has ever since been blending with mystical traditions, as a pledge for purety and emancipation in oneself's life. [See]

In spite of growing and insistent claim for parity into senior positions in every political institution, Malagasy women still happen to make quite a small minority at the forefront of the national news. The year 2012’s moment of glory undoubtedly belongs to Beatrice Atallah, President of the transitional electoral commission CENIT.

And for the second time in a row, the transitional ruling power's guardian angel, the very precious Richard Ravalomanana, got entitled to the lion’s share from Santa Claus. His case happens to be an evidence of the purely political nature of the appointments. [See]

For lack of any man who clearly and largely towered above the competition by the nature of his outstanding achievement during the year 2012, we have to make do with a chart of ten local figures who topped the headlines more often than the rest of us. The Dahalo Chief Remenabila cannot be part of the show, for crimes and violations of the law can obviously not be glorified as exemplary deeds.
