Opinion: CHOGM gave Kagame all the political capital he ever wanted

This here was served on a silver platter. The speeches, the interviews and the publicity is a wet dream for any sort of Head of State. The 26th Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in Kigali in Rwanda was just to perfect. It was a spectacle and a show worthy of anyone watching politics. Though the usage and the means of it won’t amount to much.

However, President Paul Kagame got exactly what he wanted. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson speaking well of Rwanda and other Heads of State doing the same. People seeing all smiles and the glory. That’s a propaganda victory of the ages. Just like the Olympics or Sporting events. This was just that sort of story and making the regime of Kigali look good.

We know that critics of Kagame goes missing, gets abducted, arrested or is inevitably silenced. The same with the opposition or anyone who really opposes him. That’s why he wins over 90% at every single election. His party is supreme and his words are decreed. Whatever Kagame decides is the law and order of the Republic. That’s how things are run… and what you not got to see.

People got to see a polished “statesman” though Kagame is as brutal as it gets. He kills his detractors and has earned fortunes on the plights of the people of Kivu Provinces since the 1990s in the Democratic Republic of Congo. So, while the M23 is ravaging in the DRC with the support of Kigali.

Kagame got to bash in glory. Got to get the spotlight on the clean-streets and the positivity of Kigali. Where things are correct and smooth. However, it is just perfecting things and making it look organized.

This will be shilled to the press and whatever sort of international media houses who reported on it. The Commonwealth was now a the sort of operation that skims over what the regime does. That’s the beauty of it and the United Kingdom is willing to be the supervisor of it all. Which is very ironic, because Rwanda has distanced itself from much of the relics of the colonial past. Nevertheless, they signed up for the Commonwealth and his now the Chairman of it.

That is saying something. Kagame is getting a title and a world stage in an organization, which is only reflecting good on him. Just like he used the year 2018 to be the Chair of African Union (AU) to spearhead himself and his own vision across the board. The same will now be done by giving him the honour of being recognized by the Commonwealth.

Certainly, it is like his past or present doesn’t matter. The ones who dares to defy him in Rwanda. Either ends up in jail or stops breathing. Therefore, this isn’t the sort of man you hire to get better governance. Unless, you prefer oppression and a full blown military dictatorship. Which uses all means to silence critics. The state uses various techniques to make it happen and it all happens simultaneously. People just end up dead and there is all sorts of excuses for it.

Kagame won’t state it and we know. We know that Kigali will not take any blame, but blame the victims. That’s just what it does and the same for the ones lingering in prison. The prisoners of conscience and political prisoners who defied him. They are there because they spoke out, made a cartoon or fielded their candidacy without him recognizing them. Because, no real opponent of him would get his blessing.

This CHOGM22 gave Kagame just what he wanted. It gave him positivity and it looked futuristic. The facade and the play of the guards. Where everything just looked amazing. However, the dark-side of this regime wasn’t spoken off. Neither was it addressed. Instead, Kagame down-played and acted like no one could give him any lessons. We have seen that before, but now at a grander stage and without any real push-back.

He shouldn’t get away with it. We know that he most likely will. This man is a warlord and a tyrant. It is just the way he wants to play things to get away from that. He wants to act like a natural leader, but we know that if he didn’t have the guns or the power of the army. Kagame wouldn’t get far either .That’s why anyone who opposes him gets into danger.

This man isn’t a gentleman, but a calculated killer and if you don’t believe me. Read up on why they nicknamed him: ‘Pilato’. Peace.

Opinion: Patel would have blocked her own parents from entering the United Kingdom

Home Secretary Priti Patel and her Home Office would with today’s rules and laws blocked her own parents from entering the United Kingdom. This means, if the rules that she has set fourth and made into law would make it impossible for her to become a Member of Parliament and Minister. That says something about how draconian the laws has become.

The newest Immigration Bill will make it impossible and illegal for refugees and asylum-seekers, which doesn’t come through resettlement schemes. That means the ones who flee war, famine and political prosecution faces not only lack of protection and neither able to re-unit with their families. The ones helping the refugees and asylum-seekers are also facing the law.

We also know that the United Kingdom, the Tories and Patel has in addition signed an agreement for “offshore” operation in Rwanda. This is all in combination and shows the viciousness towards immigrants in the United Kingdom. The UK who has at one point colonized nations, islands and whatnot across the world. Is now blocking the world from coming home.

Patel and the Conservative Party of the UK is showing it’s lack of tolerance, respect and value of life. As they are so openly cruel, inhumane and so deeply flawed. This is really an attack on immigration, the rights of asylum-seekers and refugees.

That is the plan and aims of this, as they are wanting to have laws to ensure the asylum-seekers and the ones coming can be detained, returned or sent to a Third-Country instead of getting visa or become naturalised into the United Kingdom. Because, with this sort of laws, the UK is legitimately only allow the ones with paper or ability to file it really. Unless, they are allowed through the processing of the United Nations. While the rest can be sent away or be destined to uncertainty in Rwanda. This is how it seems and what they are willing to do.

The United Kingdom is clearly becoming unfriendly and an island fortress. Because, it is really rich to know that the parents of Patel wouldn’t have gotten through this system. She is basically targeting her own and the kind who came before. This would have blocked the Windrush Generation and others who has come to the UK.

That is just showing how the UK has become. This a result of the independence after Brexit, as the European Union (EU) wouldn’t have accepted these rules and neither would the EU organizations. It is just bound to happen and would have become hostile between Brussels and London. Now, it is just London against the world. While the UK has to adhere to the Withdrawal Agreement with the EU. Nevertheless, the UK and the Tories shows how heartless they are.

People thought the UK-Rwanda deal was a just a one-time thing. No, it is a part of system and legality of which the Tories are changing things. Patel and her Home Office just shows what they are willing to do. This is people in need, fleeing and trying to get away to a safe place. The UK isn’t that place, but a new hostile environment.

The Tories, Patel and everyone who aides the London Government right now. Just shows their insincerity and how they are not concerned about the plights of the asylum-seekers or refugees. The UK is showing the world what sort of state it is, as they want to ensure only the allocated or the ones they are abided to keep after international law is getting there. The rest is after own needs and not if people need protection. Because, they can be easily banished or blocked from entry, possibly even arrested or arrest the one giving them shelter. Also, ensuring the asylum-seeker doesn’t try to or is able to bring his-or-her family to re-unite in the UK.

If that isn’t telling and showing what sort of government there is in London right now. Nothing is and its vicious, brutal and inhumane. That’s who is ruling and running the Home Office right now. A sort of person that is making laws, which her own family and parents would have become qualified to enter. If that isn’t saying something. Nothing is… remember that. Patel’s own family wouldn’t get entry or get visa to the UK in 2022. Yes, they came before these laws and such, but it sets a precedence. Peace.
