Chad has been rocked by a political crisis since President Idriss Deby was killed while visiting front-line troops. Mahamat Idriss Deby, his 38-year-old son, was then installed by the military as interim president. He had initially promised not to take part in elections that would follow an 18-month transition to civilian rule but as the deadline neared, a nationwide forum staged by Deby reset the clock. On October 1, it approved a new “maximum” 24-month timeframe for holding elections. Deby was sworn in on October 10 and later appointed a so-called government of national union headed by Prime Minister Saleh Kebzabo. Hundreds of people took to the streets to mark the date when the military initially promised to hand over power. Pray for the return of civilian rule in Chad and for the continuing violations of human rights to end. Pray for Chadians to submit to God’s rule and hope for a good future
