Opinion: President Kagame needs to answer for the surveillance of over 3500 phones

The revelations of the Pegasus project and the surveillance from various of international states into people’s smart phones should worry us as citizens. When both rouge and friendly states does this … we should wonder why? And for what reason? No matter, which nation or republic does this to its citizens or aliens, heck even foreigners they are worried about. They should still be asked, why?

We know that surveillance and intelligence operations have happened before. Where the authorities have listened through “the wire” and been able to catch criminals on tape. That is now ancient and the methods are more sophisticated. They are able to monitor, without a trace see and follow a person. That’s what the Israeli Pegasus did and the Rwandan authorities did this.

The Rwandan authorities did it as such a large scale. They did at other heads of state. Journalists in Kampala and also other dissidents living in Europe. The Rwanda Patriotic Front (RPF) did it all and used it such an extent of following more than 3,500 Rwandan telephone-numbers. That says it all.

The authorities in Kigali had no issues to tap these phones, listen in and monitor the movements of these people. They must clearly have huge servers and archives to keep this data. The authorities have breached the privacy of so many people and done so across the borders.

That should worry people… as the government have now collected this and done this. It is a hacking operation done to surveillance people of all kinds. The tyrant was spying and could use this to kidnap, assassin and detain dissidents or even blackmail them. There is dozens of options to get dirt on the individuals and use this information for the benefit of Kigali.

That is what the people should be worried about. Kagame can easily target these fellow human beings and publish something. Because he has this after the hacking and surveillance of these people.

The RPF have already used violent means to get rid of their enemies. To use Pegasus makes sense to get leverage and methods to shield their actions. In such a manner… that the intelligence could mask and find the right time to catch and silence the ones they have on their list.

This is why this is very fitting for a rational and a cold-hearted ruler. The government get access and could easily without jurisdiction or justification get the intelligence the authorities wants. That’s why the Pegasus was a gift to Kagame and others of his kind. They must have rubbed their hands and praised the lord for the technical option and ability to hack into these phones.

So, I am not surprised … but the President should answer for the need to hack 3500 telephone numbers and various amounts of aliens as well. Why? What was the reason?

Did they all offend the Don at one point? Did some of them write satire? Did some of them make political cartoons? Did some of them make patriotic songs? What did they do?

That’s what I wonder about and I don’t think we will ever get a honest answer for this. But know this was used for vicious means and plenty have paid the price for this operation though the Pegasus programme. Peace.
