In N’Djamena, everyone knows Koulamallah. “There is Allah in his name”, ironically one of his relatives. It is true that, since May 2, 2021, Abderaman Koulamallah has been in charge of the Communication portfolio, most also to carry the (good) word of the transitional government. A cantor of consensus, he was part of the first teams of the National Transitional Council (CNT), which, in mid-March 2022, were sent to Doha, Qatar, to engage in inclusive pre-dialogue with the eternal rebels in exile, in Libya or elsewhere.
“I still have many friends among the politico-military. We call each other regularly. I have no problem with anyone. Dialog inclusive and sovereign is a chance for definitive reconciliation between Chadians, beyond ethnic quarrels”, specifies the one whom some consider as one of the key actors of a lasting peace in Chad. A few days after the announcement by the Malian government that the country was withdrawing from the G5 Sahel, it was also him that Mahamat Idriss Déby Itno chose, on May 20, to be its emissary and to meet Assimi Goïta in Bamako.
