A protest march by the Chadian citizen coalition, Wakit Tama, scheduled to take place in N’Djamena, the capital of the country, on Saturday, Dec. 4, 2021 has been moved to Saturday, Dec. 11.

A communique issued  by Wakit Tama on Friday, Dec. 3, revealed that the demonstration has been postponed due to the late delivery of the authorisation for the march and the alteration of the itinerary by the security authorities.

Wakit Tama called on Chadians to prepare for the Saturday, Dec. 11 demonstrations.

Wakit Tama had on Nov.18, made a request for authorisation to stage a peaceful protest march today Saturday, Dec. 4, starting from the Double Lane roundabout to the Idriss Mahamat Ouya stadium.

In reply, the military authorities in the country sent a note to the organisers modifying the itinerary of the march and indicating that the demonstration should start from Festafrica to the Idriss Mahamat Ouya stadium.

The military authorities drew the attention of the Wakit Tama leadership to the fact that in case of “destruction, theft, effraction or any other disorder, the organsers of the demonstration would be held responsible before the judicial authorities.”
