A dictatorship is good, as long as it is approved by the west.
First of all, let me just put this disclaimer out there: I have no problem with a dictatorship, as long as the president looks out for the best interest of his people and the development of his country.
Having said that, I know I’m running the risk of being barred from ever entering Rwanda again. I need to mention that I love the work that Paul Kagame is doing in Rwanda as a president, on the surface at least. The country is clean, and the economy seems to be thriving in a way that I have not noticed in other African countries that I’ve visited. As a dictator, maybe Kagame should hold training sessions for the other dictators across Africa to teach them a thing or two about patriotism, and the love for the African people. I understand that Kagame came from a rebellion background, where he fought for his position as president after defeating the Hutu rebels in Rwanda.That seems to be the case across Africa. Most of the presidents in African countries emerged from rebellious fighting against other groups or tribes. Too often these rebellions are financed by the west on both sides. There’s nothing white people enjoy more than a civil war that they created in Africa. They like to handout guns and money to both sides, because African genocides only benefit the west. The current president of Uganda is also a former rebel leader who came into power 32 years ago, without having accomplished shit for the country since he took over. Poverty is rampant and the infrastructure is nonexistent. My visitor’s pass across Africa may very well get revoked everywhere, but I’m not going to allow anybody to silence my voice, especially when they are corrupted leaders. Though I didn’t spend a month or two in Uganda and Rwanda, I was able to spend enough time in both countries to compare and contrast the two governments and their societies.
In Rwanda, Kagame runs a tight ship. On my very first night out, I was questioned by two detectives who work for his regime, and they wanted to know everything about my background, but most of all, they wanted to make sure I was not Nigerian. For some reason, Nigerians seems to be hated everywhere I have visited in Africa. Anyway, the detectives were polite, and they weren’t as inconspicuous as they thought they were. My driver knew right away they were cops, and he alerted me. After engaging them in a conversation for a few minutes, I also figured out they were undercover police officers working for a regime that keeps a tight lid on any movement across the nation. Everyone in Rwanda is a spy, so a person must be careful how they speak about the president and how they act around other people. A lot of people have lost their voices under the leadership of Paul Kagame. Much like any other dictatorship anywhere, African leaders want to take away the rights and voices of their people. They don’t seem to value feedback and opinions of their constituents. In Rwanda, everyone lives in fear, and nobody dares say anything about the government. My big mouth could’ve gotten me killed, but that story is for another day. I did explore the city of Kigali, and I found it to be a beautiful and clean city, being developed nicely and offering amenities that I have not found in other parts of Africa. Kagame has also made a commitment to finance 80% of the country’s projects with the country’s own money, which is commendable, given the fact that China is throwing money around all over Africa, in order to re-establish a new form of colonization through debt. China’s promise to build infrastructure around Africa is shoddy at best. Bridges less than 5 years old are already crumbling, and highways are falling apart across Africa. It’s a sham and a scam on the part of the Chinese. In addition, the Chinese are moving to Africa with unskilled laborers and criminals who act racist toward the African natives. Africa needs to kick them the fuck out quick! Zambia is already feeling the wrath of China’s fake philanthropy in Africa. They’ve taken over many industries due to defaulted loans.These black leaders are gonna learn that nothing in life is free.The promises made by China to these African presidents only benefit the personal pockets of these leaders and their family, not their country and people. The Chinese understand this, and they know it’s a matter of time before they own what’s left of Africa. China is positioning itself to be the global leader in commerce and defense around the world, so Africa will be a pawn in their chess game. Few leaders in Africa are smart enough to negotiate deals with China that will benefit their country in a way that will uplift their people from the abyss. The Chinese understand the history of corruption, dictatorship and poor leadership across Africa. They are taking full advantage of that! I give Kagame credit to a certain degree, but he’s still a dictator who’s trying to rule with an iron fist. A little feedback from the people might serve him well, because he seems to be well intended.
While the US and their allies are quick to assassinate many dictators around the world under the false pretense of installing democracy, they also allowed the Duvalier regime in Haiti to thrive under two different leaders for decades, because those dictators received their blessings and looked out for US interests. Meanwhile, they tried to assassinate Castro over 90 times without much success, because Castro undermined the imperialist ideals. I’m sure they played a role in Hugo Chavez’s death in Venezuela, just as the US government played a role in the death of Johnny Cochran, after he announced he was planning to put a team of lawyers together to sue the government for reparation on behalf of the descendants of former slaves. The case would’ve been catastrophic to the US economy, and they knew that Cochran would’ve won. The answer is always cancer. These people know how to get that poison in anybody’s system. The sinister ways of white people have infested the world, and no leader is safe unless they get the approval of the white imperialists. President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe was made a “sir” in England, until he decided to stand up against white tyranny and imperialism. They undermined him with embargoes and crumbled his economy. The Chinese are now taking advantage of Zimbabwe. I’m hoping that president Paul Kagame is smart enough to understand the chess game he’s gotten himself involved in. These damn imperialists are only good for one thing, and one thing only, the exploitation of other people. Kagame is no more powerful than the former leader of Libya, Qaddafi. He seems to have taken a page from Qaddafi, based on what I’ve seen in Rwanda, as far as his leadership and the progress of his country. However, I don’t see how he can maintain power, unless he’s willing to allow the west to exploit his people to a certain degree. I understand that dictatorship has been a staple in Africa for decades now, but few African leaders understand that their limited power is determined by the west. They are only as strong as white people allow them to be. It’s a false sense of empowerment and security assured by America and its European allies for their own self-interest. These people also know how to crumble economies, suffocate a people, and bring their wrath onto a nation with impunity. These civil wars across Africa are well-orchestrated by the west. The fall of every regime is determined by them, and they are there to make sure only African blood is shed with every regime change that takes place. While I enjoyed the beauty of Rwanda and everything the country has to offer to a visiting American citizen tourist like myself, I must not be blinded to the fact that some Rwandans feel powerless and voiceless under the dictatorship of president Kagame. I was told many things by people on the hush hush. I gloated a little too much on behalf of Kagame. The picture is not always what it seems. Kagame is a great magician for now, creating an illusion that all other African leaders should follow. His country is clean and thriving…for now.
African leaders need to learn how to become moderate dictators, in order for their country to thrive in a way that will empower them as leaders, and allow their young generation a better future. When a government feels the need to take away the voices of people, those people will never maximize their potential, because they understand that any achievement can be wiped away without a moment’s notice for saying the wrong thing, and livelihoods can be destroyed. These leaders consciously act as the enforcers for white imperialism and supremacy against their own people. They don’t value the lives of their African citizens, and the absolute power they believe they have, is controlled by the superpowers who stand by to remove them at will, the minute they go against their interest. While I applaud president Kagame for the great work he has done with the city of Kigali and the development of his country, I also have a problem with him as a dictator who came into power through a rebellion, but now he’s acting like the very people he rebelled against.
