Chadian former leader, Hissene Habre, has been sentenced to life in prison for crimes against humanity, torture and sexual slavery.
A special court in Senegal was formed to handle his case, after he was arrested in Dakar in July 2013.
702's Azania Mosaka spoke to ISS consultant and analyst on Africa, Liesl Louw, regarding the issue.

It's been the first time that a former head of state has been tried in another African country. Charles Taylor was tried in a court in The Hague.— Liesl Louw, ISS consultant
It's a victory for justice and victims of Habre who fought for years to get their testimony out there. One shouldn't underestimate how difficult it was for them to have their day in court.— Liesl Louw, ISS consultant
There are still so many issues in Chad today. It's not like Hissene Habre left and it was a perfect democracy.— Liesl Louw, ISS consultant
