The situation in Chad following the death of Idriss Deby Itno was the focus of an exchange between Denis Sassou N’Guesso, current president of the Economic Community of Central African States (ECCAS), and Moussa Faki Mahatma, president of the African Union Commission, on 1 May in Oyo, north of Brazaville.
The meeting between Denis Sassou N’Guesso, current President of the Economic Community of Central African States (ECCAS) and Moussa Faki Mahatma, President of the African Union Commission, revolved around the crisis in Chad after the death of Idriss Deby Itno. According to sources on the spot, during their tête-à-tête, the two personalities emphasised the transition and stabilisation of this state plagued by terrorism.
In front of the press, the Chairperson of the African Union Commission said that the African Union has deployed a fact-finding and evaluation mission to Chad. The findings of this commission will enable the Security Council to take possible decisions. Faced with the situation, the African Union has « put in place a mechanism to gradually return the country to constitutional legality », he said.
Chad is facing a cycle of deadly violence after the death of Idriss Deby Itno. This Saturday, the Prime Minister of the transition, Albert Padacké, called for calm and sacred union.
« To those who are in the street, those who express anger, exasperation that we can understand, to those who shout that we all want to push, I invite you now to play the game of transition. This transition is an opportunity to prepare together the ground for a healthy competition for the peaceful expression of personal and collective ambitions. These words were reported by the local media.
