Reports reaching us says the president of Chad Idriss Deby is dead. His death which was announced today occured barely a day of his being announced as the winner of Chads presidential election which was recently concluded. Had he not died, it would have been his 6th tenure in office as the president of Chad. Popular opinions in the streets says the election was rigged as President Idris Deby intimidated his opositions and shut down the internet during the election that he won by 79.32%.

 

Before his death, he had ruled Chad for 31 years as he came into power in 1990. His son General Mahamat Idriss Deby, a 4 star General in the Chadian army, will be succeeding him according to the reports. He is just 37 years old , succeeding his father would make him the youngest president in Africa.

According to the reports, the Chadian Military has dissolved the National Assembly which should have been an opposition to General Mahammat Idriss Deby’s succession of his father as Chad’s constitution states that the president of the National Assembly is the one to come into office as leader of the nation when there is a vacancy like the case of president Idriss Deby’s death.

 

His tenure as the president of Chad has been plagued with strong oppositions from a rebel group who sees him as a dictator who should give way for democracy. It is reported that it was an encounter with the rebels that resulted in a serious exchange of fire that led to his death, as Idris Deby is known for leading his army to the battle ground himself. His most popular quotation, “the best way to be part of a battle is to smell the gun powder”, says everything about his opinion on being the Commander In Chief of the Chadian Army.

 

During Idris Deby tenure as president of Chad, the nation records a poverty rate of 47% despite the 2.3% unemployment rate it reports.
