A thread on why the crisis in #Togo is escalating
1- Last year the people started protesting to demand the reinstatement of a constitution that encompassed terms limit which was voted by 97% during a referendum in 1992 but Eyadema changed in 2002 #Togodebout #Fauremustgo
2- The government has to either reinstate terms limit of the president @FEGnassingbe who is serving a third term and this thanks to vote rigging and the massacre of over 500Togolese civilians when he seized power following the death of his father in 2005 #Togodebout #Fauremustgo
3- The regime then rushed to pass a new constitution which included terms limit but included a new article stating that the terms limits do not affect the current of past terms of the president. Meaning he gets two more terms plus the 3 he sever starting 2020. #Fauremustgo
