“It’s ludicrous to behave like this in a countr with so much poverty”
I received this video a few days ago. It was filmed by a local video production company. At one point, you can clearly see Zakaria Déby, who is the son of the president’s cabinet director, throwing piles of bills on the singer and on women dancing around him [at 2’48” into the video]. It’s just ludicrous to behave like this in a country with so much unemployment and poverty.The bride was chosen because she comes from a noble family; her lineage traces back to the Kanem Bornu royals. Those who leaked the video are discontent relatives who seek to denounce this union.Chadian union workers have been on strike since the month of August because the government reneged on an agreement signed during the summer of 2011 that was supposed to increase the minimum wage from 90 euros to 180 euros per month. One year later, nothing has changed, and the president keeps saying that the government doesn’t have enough money to make good on this promise. It’s really insulting to hear this, and then see how impudently those close to the president are wasting the Chadian people’s money.
