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.

Opinion: Kagame better carry his weight for his proxy wars in the DRC

there were no crimes [in eastern DR Congo] – not by the individuals talked about or by the countries talked about” – President Paul Kagame (17.05.2021)

Let’s be perfectly clear and blunt. Rwandese President Paul Kagame is a warlord and should be known for that. His career like his former ally President Yoweri Kaguta Musevei have both been made out of bloodshed, death and destruction. Both ways to rise to power and get into office came through the barrel of the gun. It is not like these gentlemen won in a free and fair election. No, they took power and never left.

These gentlemen rose to power by the use of force, arms and heavy-weaponry. These folks used guerrilla tactics and was partners in crime. The two president was allies and part of a hierarchy for so long. Until they had a fallout. They participated in several wars, twice liberating themselves and conducting proxy wars inside the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Therefore, Kagame is fully aware and knows the game his been playing.

Kagame has supported several of outfits, Rwandan inspired and ensured militias have capacity to run regions to export minerals like gold and other valuable assets from the Eastern part of the DRC. He can act a fool, but we know the former Intelligence Officer knows better. ‘Pilato’ isn’t that you?

Just to prove my point of his and his countries misgivings in the DRC. There been books on this and explaining in detail, but here is just mere details to give some short insight to matter at hand.

Source 1:

Paul Kagame, the U.S.-backed warlord and dictator of Rwanda, last week accused France and Belgium of complicity in the mass killings in his country 20 years ago. It is true that France and Belgium, along with Britain, Spain, Portugal, Italy, The Netherlands, Denmark and Germany, are collectively responsible for the extermination of hundreds of millions – of whole peoples – all across the globe. However, in the case of the Rwanda genocide of 1994, the main criminals are Paul Kagame, himself, and his allies in neighboring Uganda and in the United States. After the frenzy of killing was done, U.S. President Bill Clinton and Ugandan strongman Yoweri Museveni then joined with Kagame to launch a war against the neighboring Democratic Republic of Congo that has claimed six million lives – the greatest genocide, by far, since World War Two” (Glen Ford – ‘Kagame and the murder of millions in Congo and Rwanda’ 24,04.2014, Pambazuka.org).

Source 2:

But Kagame’s facade is certainly in jeopardy with the expected distribution of a 508-page report detailing 600 violent events that took place in the DRC between March 1993 and June 2003. The leaked report, compiled from more than 1,000 primary documents and 1,000 eyewitness accounts, maintains that Rwandan forces, under the leadership of Kagame, aggressively pursued the genocidaires. More controversially the report alleged that the Rwandans also killed innocent women, children and ethnic Hutu during this pursuit — seemingly without concern for their actual political affiliations or behavior. In this characterization, the Rwandans are not unbiased, effective military saviors, but bloodthirsty killers on the hunt for revenge and riches” (Christian Davenport – ‘Opinion: Leaked UN report gives critical view of Paul Kagame’ 19.09.2010, Global Post).

I am sure plenty of generals, lieutenants and other military commanders since 1993 could explain the actions made in the DRC on the behalf of Kagame. Kagame knew perfectly well what was happening and what his nation contributed of atrocities, massacres and genocide too. He knows about the looting, the destruction and the devastation of several of provinces in the DRC. That is knowledge that Kagame has and he has profited from.

General Kagame have earned fortunes on the sinister actions done in the DRC. He has sent his proxy soldiers into the DRC and extracted valuable minerals and other commodities, which has enriched himself and others in Kigali. That is just a mere fact and it has been profitable. It has ensured a grand living and prosperous times for him.

That is why it’s really something else reading that he claims no crimes was committed in the DRC. Who is he kidding here? He is lucky that he has gotten away with it to this day. While smaller militia leaders and other involved have been on trial and charged at the International Criminal Court (ICC). However, he has been off the hook and never been properly served.

Kagame should answer for the crimes committed. The lives taken, the ones hurt and severely damaged for life. So many have been scorn and torn apart because of greed and barbarism. The Rwandese General can act like it doesn’t matter, but that further proves his discontent with the victims and the ones who lost their loved ones in this. Because Paul Kagame knows what happened and what went down. He knows about the proxy armies, the militias and other outfits, which he has supported with logistics, arms and other needed equipment.

The Rwandese President know about the warfare, the conflict and the illicit trade, which he has been a benefactor from. He knows all of this and his been eating of the DRC plate, as long as I can remember. He doesn’t value the DRC as a friendly neighbour, but as business-operation for him to benefit from. While the costs are burdened on the local population and the Kinshasa government. That is what is occurs on the regular and he thinks he can get away with it. Which is sickening and borderline offensive.

Kagame and his allies should answer for their crimes in the DRC. All of the years with pain, heartache and destruction should have a price. He shouldn’t be free, but instead be busy addressing atrocities happening on his watch. Peace.

Opinion: Kagame isn’t a statesmen, but a calculated ‘killer’ [‘Pilato’ What’s Up?]

General Paul Kagame, the President for life of Rwanda. The man who consolidated all power and keeps everyone else on a leach in Kigali. The Rwandese President has a history and the ones who dissent to him is silenced. Kagame has ensured the ones who is in his way either gets detained, poisoned or dies suddenly. That has been reoccurring during all the years in power.

While people are praising him for his achievements, the propaganda and the grandeur of certain policies. They are not seeing the ill and vicious side of the regime. The Rwandan Patriotic Front (RPF) is all under his control and nothing is without his touches.

Kagame has been a key architect behind a lot of slaughter, horrific murders and possible genocides. A man like that shouldn’t be seen as a “statesman”. When he has issued more orders of death, than creating possible development of his domain. The Rwandese President wants his story to not be told, but the show the stadiums, the cleanliness and the “progressive” manners of which he rules with an iron fist.

Kagame don’t want the stories of FRONASA. Surely he don’t want his nickname from the bush-war days in the National Resistance Army (NRA) as ‘Pilato’. That was his nickname because of his ruthlessness during the bush-war in 1980 to 1986. I’m sure that he don’t want people to remember his time as a Head of Administration at the Military Intelligence at Basiima House.

Just as Kagame was heading and being a high ranking commander during the regime overthrow between 1990 to 1994. Where he participated in massacres and murders. As his RPF was doing whatever it could to take power from exile. This was done with support and help by his ally in Kampala, Museveni.

So, we know that Kagame and the RPA was part of the deaths in Luweero Triangle and also part of the genocide in Rwanda. Kagame has been vital part of these violations, horrific atrocities and murders to get power in Uganda and Rwanda. This continued by the forged alliance between Kigali and Kampala who together overthrow the leadership in Zaire/Democratic Republic of Congo twice. Where they have after this also supported proxy militias and looted that Republic across its border. This is continuing to this day. Where Kagame is also responsible for vast amounts of death over decades in the DRC.

Why do I say all of this and put this out there? Well, the praises of him should stop. His a calculated killer and been trained to do this. That is why suddenly his detractors after falling and dying. They are assassinated, killed and suspiciously gone missing. The state will always state they don’t know and they will investigate the deaths, but they are never properly solved or proven. As everyone knows the state was involved in the demise of these people.

While that is happening. The state have PR exercises and trying to forge another narrative. The state is willing to sell other stories and selling Kagame as a saint. The state is trying together with the President to look as the greatest leader and the grandest man to ever be President. The President clearly doesn’t want to be known as ‘Pilato’.

Kagame wants to be a smooth sooth-sayer, but everyone should know the truth. His a militant and a autocrat, who is not leaving anyone behind. The ones who stands in his path gets buried. That is a tragic state of affairs, but the reality is this sinister.

The RPF and the Rwandan government never would like the truth to come out. They rather bully someone who says it and dismiss it. They are calling writers who speaks the truth all sort of names and does what it can to tarnish them. It is just tragic and the world should know. As Kagame wants to be known as a statesman, but they should know that its a lie. A big fat lie and not the truth at all.

Kagame is a killer and a calculated one. He is deceitful and dishonest. There is nothing else to it. Peace.

Rwanda: Communique du Conseil des Ministres (19.04.2021)

Rwanda: The Duclert Report re-affirms what we knew about French involvement ahead of the 1994 Genocide

Yes. This is a long time coming. It had to be several of French Presidents before they took any responsibility and taking to account their role in the Genocide of 1994 in Rwanda. The French had invested and a close relationship with the current leadership at the time in Kigali. That jaded their will and their support for it. These folks did directly trade weapons and profit on the genocide.

The French have tried people who has been involved in the Genocide in Rwanda. France have acted as a big-brother, but not acted righteous towards its own ends. They have been the paternal nation and with the current Duclert Report. The current leadership in Paris should make reconciliation and redeem its stature in Kigali. That is only fair knowing what their actions did and did assist the atrocities in Rwanda.

First dropping one statement from France24 to show what they found and what has been written in 1999 about the same thing.

French Reports states known facts:

The report tells of French decision-makers trapped in “post-colonial” thinking who supported the “racist, corrupt and violent” regime of Habyarimana as he faced a Tutsi rebellion which many considered was directed from English-speaking Uganda. Mitterrand “maintained a strong, personal and direct relationship with the Rwandan head of state”, it said” (France24 – ‘’Blind’ France bears responsibility on Rwanda genocide, historical commission reports’ 26.03.2021).

French Involvement before the Genocide:

The leaders of France and Rwanda also had very close family ties Mitterand of France and Habyarimana were friends, but their sons, Jean Christophe Mitterand and Jean Pierre Habyarirnana, were not only closer friends, but that friendship was consolidated further by business dealings. The two camps used political power in their countries in order to boost and protect their respective economic interests. The Rwanda Re-view(2:3,1993) ran a letter from Mitterand to Habyarimana, a letter that was not only both personal and official, but also talked about the interests of France in Rwanda. There is also an indication that Jean C. Mitterand was one of the biggest arms dealer in Rwanda. It was there-fore in the interest of France that there should be use for the arms France was ready to supply to Rwanda, arms that eventually ended in the arms of the hands of the extremist killers” (Joan Kakwenzire and Dixon Kamukama – ‘The Path of a Genocide – The Rwandan Crisis from Uganda to Zaire’, P.83, 1999).

With these two pieces. You see they say the same thing. They are connected. The Kakwenzire and Kamukama is also showing the benefits of the relations between the Heads of State. That the sons also had a favourable relations. They wouldn’t have done what they did. If it wasn’t beneficial and had positive outcome. These folks wouldn’t have worked together like they did.

Both Kigali and Paris had close communication. They were even trading arms ahead of the genocide. Certainly knowing what was brewing and had some foresight into the violence that could erupt. Not like they were dumb or had no knowledge.

Just as they had already done this as well ahead of the genocide:

1991; March 15: The French ambassador to Rwanda, Georges Martres, informed Juvénal Habyarimana that the French Presidency had decided to put a thirty-man DAMI (detachment of troops for military assistance and training) at the Rwandan authorities’ disposal *(Lanotte, 2007: 144). It was named DAMI-Panda and was originally intended to stay four months on location, but in fact it remained in Rwanda until December 1993 *(Lanotte, 2007: 145). This deployment was not publicized by the French political and military authorities, or by their Rwandan counterparts *(Lanotte, 2007: 148)” (Viret Emmanuel – ‘Rwanda – A Chronology (1867-1994)’ 01.03.2010, SciencePro.fr)

So with this all in mind. The Duclert Report only re-affirm what we already knew. They are only stating facts that been out there and they have finally “found” it out themselves. If they will take more accountability and actually reflect it. That is a whole different ball-game.

For some of us. We knew the French was directly involved and supported the regime who did their part in the genocide in 1994. Clearly, with that knowledge. The French could have acted differently and not participated in the exports of arms. However, they only saw money and friendship with the Heads of State. It was business and pleasure. Which in the end was helping the demise of so many innocent civilians.

Now is not the time for empty statements, but direct action of the French to act upon their own findings, which many of us already knew. Peace.
