Wakit Tama’s Leadership Under Fire Over Alleged Support Of Chad’s TMC

The political parties betraying the Wakit Tamma movement have allegedly been excommunicated according to Wakit Tamma.

The decision by some political parties affiliated to the Citizens Coalition, Wakit Tamma, to accompany the Chadian Transitional Military Council (TMC) has been described by the Front Nouveau pour le Changement (FNC) –  New Front for Change – as a “theatrical scene in bad taste,”

“Without taking into account the pertinent resolutions of the credible opposition, some political parties of Wakit Tamma have decided to accompany the junta, thus dissociating themselves from the dynamics of the movement,” said Yaya Dillo, the Coordinator of the FNC, during a press briefing in the Chadian capital, N’Djamena on Monday, Aug.16.

This vault face by some affiliates of Wakit Tamma has been described by the FNC as “a blow of dishonesty which was cleverly dressed by the Prime Ministerial arete on the putting in place of the Organising Committee of the Inclusive National Dialogue” through the appointment of some leaders of the said political parties into the committee.

Wakit Tamma has on its part declared that the political parties that the FNC accused of taking sides with the TMC already quit the Wakit Tamma platform.

The FNC has rejected the Organising Committee of the Inclusive National Dialogue as announced by the Prime Minister and reiterated the conditions posed by the living forces of the nation to the TMC.

These conditions, the FNC declared, are among others, the suspension of the putting in place of the National Transitional Council (NTC) which should only come as a product of dialogue, the revision of the transitional charter and the annulment of the decree on the creation of a Committee for the Organisation of a National Dialogue to permit the putting in place of a new joint, credible and transparent Committee.

The FNC has also demanded that the Wakit Tamma platform should urgently organise a general assembly which would “permit the imposition of new rules for the fight in order to avoid playing the game of a particular party or group of parties and thus come up with a synergy of inclusive citizen actions.”
