To all the many fans of Bleach,
I have loved being a part of the Bleach universe and voicing Chad. It was a difficult decision to say no to coming back for TYBW. But I no longer audition for roles of people of color.

Representation matters.
Access matters.
I have had access to a very wide variety of roles in my career. Actors use their imaginations and their experience to breathe life into the characters we portray. We get to walk in someone else's skin for a time. We practice empathy. We feel. And we learn.
Access to opportunity in Anime has not been equal. But that has changed. By stepping aside now I open the door of Access and give opportunity to an actor who can represent Yasutora Sado with the same love and pride and imagination but with more life experience than I have.

JUST IN: #BNNChad Reports.

During demonstrations against the military ruler of Chad's plan to retain power for another two years on Thursday, the OMCT, a Geneva-based NGO, cited "severe human rights breaches." #Crime #Chad Image
The OMCT statement noted that classrooms at the Abena Communal high school in the city had been converted into prisons and that bodies of dead demonstrators had been found in the Chari River in N'Djamena over the weekend.
The statement added that hundreds had been detained, some of whom had been subjected to torture, and that "young people were reportedly summarily executed there this morning (Monday)".

WATCH: #BNNChad Reports.

Hundreds of residents of Chad's capital, N'Djamena, have evacuated their houses as a result of major flooding that has devastated the city since Thursday, making portions of the city only passable by boat. #Chad #Flood #environment
United Nations officials have reported that as of early October more than 977,000 people nationwide have been affected by flooding since the rainy season began in July.
The floods have destroyed many hectares of crops and tens of thousands of people are stranded in need of assistance. The damage caused to crops and pools of stagnant floodwaters will likely also exacerbate the food insecurity and health challenges ongoing across many areas.

On #FreshlyPressed981 with @SopeMartins and @monsieurceee this morning, we'll be asking how the NNPC came to the conclusion that petrol will sell for ₦462/litre without the subsidy.

@Smooth981FM in 15 minutes...
The NNPC is just involved in unnecessary fear-mongering.

Our neighbours, who are poorer, pay a lot more than we do for petrol. What I see in all this is people committed to maintaining their cushy subsidy scam going on.
Consider the attached chart, published in February.

As of February, based on the exchange rate, we were paying 40 cents per litre of petrol. In #Benin it was 95 cents, in #Niger it was 97 cents, in #Chad it was 89 cents, and in #Cameroun, it was $1.09. Image

This feels like more theatrics from the AU, which from the start when Hemedti convinced Faki to demand a seat at the mediation table, has been subtly and not so subtly using its seat to rebalance talks to give added support to military-Islamist forces. This has imperiled the
credibility of the entire process. The fact that only the military and its supporters are truly lamenting the AU's withdrawal demonstrates this point.
No doubt there should be AU representation at the table, but what role exactly? Perhaps as part of a
"technical" track that seems to be emerging, but ultimately another influential political role would likely be looked at suspiciously by pro-democracy forces. Many continue to allege a quid pro quo between Hemedti and Faki, who need each other to advance their personal objectives

The number of 👥 in need in Burkina Faso, Northern Cameroon,Chad,Mali,Niger, and North-Eastern Nigeria 📈 from 24M in 2018 to over 30M in 2022 due to the combined effect of:

Despite this, WHO and partners continued to work in the Sahel region to prevent the humanitarian situation from getting worse.

The coup attempt in #GuineaBissau yesterday came weeks after the military takeover in Burkina Faso and follows last year’s coups in Chad, Guinea, Sudan and Mali.

What drives these more frequent power grabs? The answer is:

it is complicated 🧵…
As most of these countries are situated in West Africa, it would be easy to think the drivers of these coups are the same across the board, but the reality is more complex:
The January 2022 coup in #BurkinaFaso followed a growing insecurity in the country, a rise in #jihadist militancy and an increasingly frustrated army, especially after a deadly attack on 14 November 2021 left 53 soldiers dead, the highest death toll ever in one single attack.

@RadioDabanga report:
Translation of the report below:
Thousands of Sudanese refugees who fled to eastern #Chad from Jebel Moon in West #Darfur state as a result of armed attacks on their villages, are calling for urgent humanitarian intervention to save their lives.
One of the refugees told Radio Dabanga that they lost all their property after armed men burned their villages, looted their properties and destroyed their farms.
He explained that they are now without shelter, food or even cover, especially with the severe cold waves these days.

1. Last night, #IS published a new statement from its spokesman Abu Hamza al-Qurashi in which, among other things, he lauded the recent exploits of #ISWAP#IS’s West Africa Province—in #Nigeria, alluding to Abubakar #Shekau's group, #JAS, as "khawarij."
2. #Qurashi said #IS was “pleased to hear the news of the bay’a” of former #Shekau followers.

This wasn't rhetoric. In the last two weeks, #ISWAP has been claiming attacks in parts of Borno in which it was previously inactive, places in which #JAS had previously been dominant.
3. After its victory over #JAS in May, many #JAS fighters joined #ISWAP, which consolidated these gains and began launching attacks in former #JAS areas quicker than many had anticipated it would.

The first such attack took place on 13 June southeast of #Maiduguri, near #Bama.
