Chad’s junta leader is promoted to five-star army general

Mahamat Idriss Déby Itno, the leader of Chad’s junta, has been promoted to the rank of general from lieutenant general.

On Wednesday, the Chadian leader wore five stars on his uniform and beret as he arrived in a five-star command car outside the presidential palace.

He was previously a lieutenant general with four stars.

On Thursday, the presidency’s head of protocol issued a press release informing state institutions and the general public of the changes.

The son of Chad’s late leader, Idriss Déby Itno, ascended to power following his father’s death in April. Since 1990, his father had served as President.

Prior to his death, only his father held the rank of five-star military general.
