Chad’s Prime Minister, Saleh Kebzabo, Wednesday accepted the resignation of the country’s defense minister and the government’s general secretary after two separate tapes purporting to show the men were shared widely on social media. According to Reuters the videos reportedly showed the men engaging in intimate acts with other people. Clement Abaifouta, president of the Chadian Association of Victims of Political Repression and Crime – which investigates abuses committed by then President Hissene Habre, tells VOA’s James Butty, it's a good thing the minister resigned because talking publicly about sex is a taboo in Chadian society.
