An official of Chad’s opposition “Transformers” party says party leader Success Masra and other officials are pleased to be back home in Chad from exile. Ndolembai Njesada, Transformers’ Vice President for Political Affairs and the Diaspora, says Masra, who returned to Chad last Friday, belongs in Chad to carry on his fight for democracy. His return was aided by Democratic Republic of Congo President Felix Tshisekedi following an agreement with Chad’s transitional government. Tshisekedi is the facilitator of the Economic Community of Central African States for Chad’s transition process. Njesada tells VOA’s James Butty, the opposition is observing a 40-day mourning period for those killed during an October 20, 2022 protest.
