The Sambatra or collective circumcision is a major traditional event celebrated every seven years by ethnic Antambahoaka population. It is a vibrant local tradition whose importance echoes so loud beyond regional and even national borders that the Diaspora does not think twice before joining Mananjary. In 2014, a year said of good omens for beginning on a Wednesday, the fervor of a people deeply attached to its identity feels as warm as ever. 36 years old Mamy Flavien holds the event as some sort of a double homecoming, an opportunity to dare the odds and make up for the fate basically assigned to him at birth; he, who had the misfortune to be the second born child of twin brothers.

As a consequence to the shutdown of the main fishery of Nosy Be island, fishing activities unexpectedly resume and expand, be it outside every regulation. The paradoxical matter of fact has its source in the latest economic downturn and gets materialized by job losses affecting various other fields like tourism or sugar production industries. The Perfume Island actually happens to be more of a consumer than a producer of fishery resources mainly supplied from areas like Ambanja and Ambilobe. Fishing boats and artisanal fishermen have nonetheless always been part of the picture of Nosy Be island. [See]

Nobody has ever been exposed to the Ebola virus either in Toamasina city or anywhere else in Madagascar. The single noticeable outbreak is that of formal reactions from the government in order to curtail any baseless panic wave. The head of the regional healthcare department of Toamasina city made it clear that neither city hospitals nor any other minor healthcare center have detected any infection with the Ebola virus anywhere. "There is no Ebola case whatsoever!" emphatically stated Frederic Rabearison. In the harbor city, a certain media group argued that one case of Ebola virus infection would have appeared. The very Head of Region quickly got a move on to dismiss this allegation before it scares local population and holiday makers away. "This allegation is wrong" emphasized Michel Talata. [See]

"A tourism destination must actually be many more than a standard composition of beautiful sceneries and top quality resorts. This is primarily a local community endowed with a physical as well as cultural background." With this mindset, the Ministry of Tourism intends to boost the development of a sector significantly slowed down by past crises. The recovery goes slow too, but ambitions are quite high, namely an expectation of a million visitors a year by 2020. [See]

Latest account: 1150 journalists for 22 million people! Are there enough of them? Should the focus rather lay on quality than on numbers? The new media landscape of Madagascar is by now on the making, first of all through the assignment of the valuable press card, then, through the erection of a new leading bureau to the order of journalists, and then through the scheduled draft of a new Code of Communication. But how do the concerned journalists actually assess their own profession? [See]
