  • The forgotten crisis: What is going on in the Central African Republic? - Truthloader

    In the middle of Africa there lies a remote and little known country called the Central African Republic, or CAR. Not only is CAR one of the least developed and poorest countries in the world with the world's joint lowest life expectancy, but for the past nine months it has been embroiled in a conflict and state of lawlessness described by many news outlets and commentators as "the worst crisis you've never heard of". On 5 December the United Nations issued a mandate to restore order in CAR "by all necessary means" following a surge of violence in which 394 people were killed in the capital Bangui in just three days of fighting. And many of these people were children. We explain exactly what's going on in CAR and how the conflict reached this point. Watch our interview with the Internatio...

According to the world body, the fighting that began on May 7 has so far left nearly one thousand civilians without shelter. Scores of people have also sustained injuries during fierce clashes.

    The Central African Republic rarely makes headlines, yet remains one of the world’s worst humanitarian crises. Following more than three years of war, instability and outbreaks of violence continue. Even with a fragile peace taking hold after presidential elections, nearly 900,000 people remain displaced. About half are refugees, who’ve sought safety in neighbouring countries.

Shortly afterwards, Michel Djotodia was recognized as the head of the government. However, Djotodia resigned in January 2014 and was replaced by current interim President Catherine Samba-Panza.

The present-day capital of CAR, Bangui, rests beside the River Ubangi. Places of interest include the colourful Central Market, the Boganda Museum, the Arts and Crafts School, the cathedral and the Saint Paul Mission. 2. At Bouar, in the east of the country, see burial mounds thought to be thousands of years old, studded with tanjunu (upright megaliths). About 2,500 years ago local farmers set up megaliths weighing several tons each near Bouar. The cooperation necessary to make and position these monuments suggests that they were built by large social units. 3. Boali is a town located in the Central African Republic prefecture of Ombella-M’Poko. Situated on the Mbali River, Boali is noted for its waterfalls and for the nearby hydroelectric dam. The Falls of Boali are 250 m wide and 50 m high. 4. The population of the Central African Republic has almost quadrupled since independence. In 1960, the population was 1,232,000; as of 2014, it is approximately 4,709,000. The nation is divided into over 80 ethnic groups, each with its own language. The 2 official languages are French and Sango, CAR being one of the few African countries to have an African language as their official language. 5. From the 16th to 19th century, the people of this region were ravaged by slave traders. The French occupied the region in 1894. After World War II a rebellion forced the French to grant self-government and in 1960 it became independent. 6. The three most important parks are Manovo-Gounda St Floris, known for its high concentration of hippos; Bamingui-Bangoran in the north; and Dzanga-Sangha in the southwest. The game population of these national parks is impressive. It is also possible to view gorillas in Bayanga. 7. Despite its significant mineral deposits and other resources, such as uranium reserves, oil, gold, diamonds, cobalt, lumber, and hydropower, as well as significant quantities of arable land, the Central African Republic is among the ten poorest countries in the world. As of 2014, the country had the second lowest level of human development, ranking 187th out of 188 countries.

Armed groups in the Central African Republic have killed civilians with wholesale impunity, spurring more violence in the war-torn country. Human Rights Watch documented war crimes committed in three central provinces since late 2014, including more than 560 civilian deaths and the destruction of more than 4,200 homes. The crimes fall under the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court (ICC) and the Special Criminal Court (SCC), a new judicial body that, when operational, will investigate and prosecute grave human rights violations and war crimes in the country since 2003.

The United Nations says clashes between rival armed factions have killed at least 100 people in the Central African Republic. According to the world body, the fighting that began on May 7 has so far left nearly one thousand civilians without shelter. Scores of people have also sustained injuries during fierce clashes. The fresh round of violence erupted between the armed militia groups of Seleka and anti-Balaka in the town of Bria, northeast of the capital Bangui. The impoverished African country plunged into chaos in 20-13 when the anti-Balaka militia began coordinated attacks against the Seleka group.

The Central African Republic rarely makes headlines, yet remains one of the world’s worst humanitarian crises. Following more than three years of war, instability and outbreaks of violence continue. Even with a fragile peace taking hold after presidential elections, nearly 900,000 people remain displaced. About half are refugees, who’ve sought safety in neighbouring countries. Despite funding shortages, humanitarian agencies work hard to provide basic necessities such as food, water, shelter and medical care to hundreds of thousands of refugees affected by a crisis, largely forgotten by the world.

The escalating violence in the Central African Republic (CAR) sparked by the murder of a motorcycle taxi driver at the end of September is threatening elections scheduled for later in October. The CAR’s foreign minister appealed to the UN as the spiraling violence continues to make it difficult for relief organizations to work. The CAR plunged into crisis in December 2013, when Christian anti-balaka militia began coordinated attacks against the country’s mostly Muslim Seleka group, which had toppled the government of President Francois Bozize in March that year. Shortly afterwards, Michel Djotodia was recognized as the head of the government. However, Djotodia resigned in January 2014 and was replaced by current interim President Catherine Samba-Panza. The CAR government is blaming anti-election elements for the violence. Rich in diamonds, gold and other minerals, the CAR has long been a highly exploited and prized arena for Western powers. It is classified as one of the world’s poorest areas.
