Wakit Tamma Calls On Chadian TMC To Resign Ahead Of Mass Protest

Wakit Tamma is calling on the TMC to resign based on two recent decrees which it signed in Chad.

Wakit Tamma, the Chadian citizens platform has called on the Transitional Military Council (TMC) to resign as it plans massive protests on Saturday, Aug. 21.

Max Loalngar, the Coordinator of Wakit Tamma, told the Chadian people on Thursday that “the different messages on your placards and banderoles sent to the transitional authorities seem to have fallen on deaf ears.”

According to the movement, the decree putting in place the ‘Organising Committee of an Inclusive National Dialogue’ and that appointing a committee for negotiations with politicians and the military “are insults to the collective intelligence of Chadians,” noting that “it is a notorious irresponsibility in the conduct of state affairs.”

Based on these two reasons, Wakit Tamma has called on the transitional government to resign and also called for peaceful demonstrations throughout the country on Saturday. 

“Since they are not listening to us, we call on all the social groups namely students, civil servants, employees of the private sector, militants of political parties, the civil society, clergymen and women, retired persons, the unemployed, clandomen, youths, women, lovers of justice, peace, freedom and democracy to this Saturday go to the Hamama roundabout from 6 a.m. for the beginning of the grand protest march for sanctions against the TMC, the transitional government and their accomplices,” Wakit Tamma declared.

Organisers of the protest  are demanding “the immediate halt to the current transitional process, which is ‘badly engaged, badly led, badly managed, and which would inevitably and inexorably lead us to chaos and an uncertain tomorrow.”

“The revision of the transitional charter to introduce all the preoccupations consigned by the African Union and other organizations in the management organs and follow-up of the transition.”

“Involve the sons and daughters of the nation in the preparation, management and follow-up of the transition by annulling the decrees putting in place the non-consensual organs.”
