Obed Katureebe, aka Robert Patrick Fati Gakwerere, is making alarmist statements as part of his smear campaign sponsored by Senile Museveni. Immediately after the Rwandan Development Board (RDB) announced new contact tracing measures to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, he launched his hostile propaganda, as usual. It has become routine, any new sensible measure is attacked by Ugandan propaganda. This is done as Senile Museveni buys some time to copy-paste the measures.
In the first place, collecting information on guests in hotels is routine worldwide. If It is not done in Uganda, it is probably because their aging administration is light years behind. Most countries immediately began tracking hotel guests and visitors as part of their anti-terrorist strategy after the world trade center attack in the US. With the current pandemic, health officials use contact tracing techniques similar to law enforcement ones. As the initial cases were announced, Airline manifests and hotel visitors’ log were used.
As the scope of infections widened worldwide, contact tracing was enhanced. In South Korea, in the US and many other countries similar measures already exist. In one case, a South Korea’s city of Itaewon sent 11,000 sms to people who went to several nightclubs telling them to go for testing after one person was found ill. These new measures save lives as they limit infections. Adding registers for contact tracing will be integral to Rwanda’s successful fight to contain the Covid-19 pandemic, and as soon as it succeeds Museveni will copy it.
Robert Patrick Fati Gakwerere better question his senile boss’s methods in dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic. He could question why Museveni prefers unleashing goons on people distributing food relief, such as MP Zaake, instead of smearing Rwanda which is doing its best to protect people against COVID-19.
