Chad’s interim Foreign Affairs Minister, Cherif Mahamat Zene has resigned over disagreements with senior politicians, opposition factions, and rebel forces.
Zene resigned amid talks in Qatar’s capital Doha with various rebel and opposition groups to find common grounds to hold elections after the military seized power last year.
He disclosed his resignation through a letter he addressed to the President of the Transitional Military Council Mahamat Deby and later posted on his Twitter account.
Part of the letter reads, “My willingness to serve my country finds itself at odds with parallel actions and initiatives of certain members of your cabinet and the government”.
Recall that Chad’s transitional authorities signed a peace pact with more than 30 rebel and opposition factions last month in which they agreed to join a national dialogue after years of turmoil.
