  • Description

    President Francois Tombalbaye of the Chad addressed a mass rally in Fort-Archambault's Place de l'Independance on Monday (April 5) on the occasion of the final day of the ruling Progressive Party's (PPT) Seventh Congress.

    The choice of Fort-Archambault, and not the capital Fort-Lamy, for the Congress, is historically significant - it was there that, in 1963, President Tombalbaye brought all his country's political functions under the control of the only Party, The Parti Progressive Tchadien (PPT).

    At a press conference later, the President attacked public corruption and announced the creation of a special Court of Justice to punish any such activity in the future.
