Central African Republic sliding back into war

Central African Republic sliding back into war

Hostilities have resumed in the Central African Republic following the breakdown of a ceasefire agreed in January this year.

Seleka rebel coalition members withdrew from the Government of National Unity this week and recommenced their campaign which had been threatening the capital before the ceasefire took effect. According to the UN, the rebels control three quarters of the Republic, including several major towns.

There may also be trouble with elements of the Ugandan group Lord’s Resistance Army as the Seleka forces move into the Republic’s southwest. LRA is known to be operating there.

Herald of War expects the losers in all this will, as usual, be the unfortunate inhabitants of this war-torn region. Whichever paramilitary strongman wins in the end is unlikely to change that.
