Mahamat Idriss Déby

The leader of the Chadian transition, Mahamat Idriss Déby, says he never imagines becoming head of state. In an interview with Jeune Afrique, the son of the late Marshal tells all about the management of post-Déby Chad.

At the helm of Chad for several months, Mahamat Idriss Déby Kaka, who succeeded his late father, says he never thought he would become Chad’s head of state. The army general who saw his life turned upside down in a lapse of time is now part of a dynamic to defend the territorial integrity of his country and the preservation of peace.

For the Chadian president, “God decides everything, fate as well as power“. “I never imagined being head of state one day,” he told Jeune Afrique. Mahamat Idriss Déby Kaka also assures us that the Transitional Military Council will not stay in power forever.

The CMT that I chair is not about confiscating power. Its mission, I repeat, is to preserve the gains of peace, unity and sovereignty of Chad and then, once the elections are done, to retire to the barracks “, reiterated the soldier.

Son of Idriss Déby Itno, Mahamat Déby Kaka took the reins of Chad after the unexpected death of his father in combat against rebels from the Front for Alternation and Concorde in Chad (FACT). Several opponents and civil society actors still oppose his regime and call for the return of an inclusive and democratic transition.
