The sudden death of President Eyadema on February 5th, 2005, triggered a severe social and political crisis in Togo. Driven by emotions and fear, the country's leading forces decided to enforce hasty constitutional changes meant to ensure his succession. These political mistakes, made jointly by the Armed Forces, the Parliament, the Government and the leaders of radical opposition parties, had terrible consequences on the Togolese population's daily lives.
