On Wednesday evening, May 5th 2021, at Village Urugwiro, President Paul Kagame received Abdelkerim Déby Itno, the Director of Cabinet and Special Envoy of the President of the Transitional Military Council of Chad.
Abdelkerim Déby Itno, who came to Rwanda as the special envoy of his elder brother Gen Maj Mahamat Idris Deby, head of Chad, delivered a special message to the Head of State, President Paul Kagame.
Although Abdelkerim Déby Itno is still young, in 2019 he became one of the leaders of the Office of the President, the late Idris Deby Itno.
Abdelkerim Déby, who was received by President Kagame, is currently in charge of foreign affairs, where in 2020 he led a delegation to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to see if Chad could have an embassy in the country.
Chad is currently one of the countries most at risk of insecurity as it has a large number of armed groups opposed to the current regime.
Born in 1992, Abdelkerim graduated from the United States Military Academy (USMA) in West Point in 2015.
