Top Chadian officials have resigned after scandals related to two separate sex tapes purporting to show the men were shared widely on social media.
An administration spokesman confirmed that the officials—defence minister and the government’s general secretary— resigned on Wednesday.
The resignations of the general secretary of the government, Haliki Choua Mahamat, and the defence minister, Daoud Yaya Brahim, were accepted by Prime Minister Saleh Kebzabo, according to a statement from Kebzabo’s spokesperson.
The males were allegedly seen in the films, which went viral on Sunday and Monday, doing sexual acts with other people.
In Chad, a nation that is primarily Muslim and has traditional social mores, sexual scandals are uncommon. None of the officials have commented on the development.
