BANGUI (LNC) – Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, on behalf of UN, namely warned Faustin Touadera and his government to consolidate peace, and to setting the country on the path of stability and recovery, at the risk of seeing financial goodies pledged by donors in Brussels go up in smoke. What really displeased the executive in CAR.
However, consolidating this UN’s unorthodox and non diplomatic statement, it was the observation of Touadera’s political stocktaking that was stigmatized this way. In response to numerous abuses and institutionalised slackness; with the example of the centrafrican judicial system, when, with or without Touadera, impunity is prevailing in the country in full force
On this December 14, UN again to hit the nail on the head speaking of “absolute humanitarian crisis and insecurity in CAR” – Strong words that regrettably may discourage donors, already hesitant to keep the promises of $ 2,2 billion they made.
MISCOMMUNICATION AND IMBALANCE
About the purpose of communication with media, Radio Ndeke Luka, seems now be ruled on behind directly by the power, getting its favours, to the detriment of the National Radio station, so much so that when atrocities committed by ANTI-BALAKA militiamen, it calls them “UNIDENTIFIED ARMED GROUPS“, but surprisingly Radio Ndeke Luka knows perfectly well how to identify those committed – which should be as well condemned outright – by the Seleka henchmen and its various factions.This was illustrated and reinforced by the explicit fact that Faustin Touadera, during trials of members of Anti-Balaka rebel group in Bangui, gave orders to judges to release those men guilty of crimes against humanity.
What is quite obviously an interference by the Power in the affairs of the judiciary, in principle free from the executive power and free from political pressures.
Even if the word JUSTICE in CAR is just a creation of the mind, but even so!
On the other hand, the Séléka militia is as well untouchable, suggesting that the CAR president lives in irrational fear of armed gangs. What prompted this joke of Bendounga:
“The MINUSCA withdraws at 9 am, at noon Touadera is ousted.”
Truly speaking, the big fear of the head of state, would be in being surprised by a coup, not coming from the Séléka, busy killing people in province, but coming from the ANTI-BALAKA, though he suspects in inside, two of his main ministers, of working in collusion with this anarchic militia.
Simply, all those silly games from Bangui do not enjoy the UN, furthermore, a rare thing within this organization, the UN disavows the MINUSCA, its own creature in RCA, because of its incompetence and inertia to apply the said “robust mandate” approved by the Security Council, spiking by the way, the gabonese Parfait Onanga-Anyanga, who very naively, wanted a negotiated disarmament agreement and not imposed. A formula Touadera will resume on the fly.
NO WAY FOR DDRR PROCESS WITH THOUSANDS DEAD IN THE MIDDLE
With an alarming increase of violations of human rights, specifically, more markedly since August 2016, It is difficult to defend settings of DDRR and/OR RSS processes, on the back of so many bodies in CAR; and much more for survivors and families, for whom justice has not been done, and will not be done. Worse thing, it will be on the reverse, the sanctification of mass murderers.
UNPREPARED DDRR PROCESS IS INEVITABLY CONSOLIDATION OF IMPUNITY
What the United Nations, and not the MINUSCA blames Touadera on, is to not let Justice doing its work freely, by opening inquiries in mass executions, exactions, torture and other crimes in provinces, Kaga-Bandoro, Koui, Bria, etc… And not necessary to recall what happened in Bangui, right underneath the power nose, cannibal-massacres of poor Fulani shepherds at the SEGA by Anti-Balaka militiamen, that government has never evoked in its all communications.
Celebrating the 1st of December in such a climate was simply an abjection, and even a political unconsciousness. Party on deaths whose corpses are still hot, is indecent!
The MINUSCA, refocused by its head office has admitted its incompetence, militarily speaking, even if, in social terms, it is very active. Confessions coming too late, for playing the game of the cavalry constantly late, being firefighters; when it had been necessary from the beginning, by simply implementing the mandate Justifying the presence of those international troops on the soil of Centrafric; CONSISTING IN DISARMING ALL FACTIONS AND ARMED GROUPS, IRREVOCABLY AND UNCONDITIONALLY.
Why the Sangaris before, and the MINUSCA until now, did not act like? That would prevent killing of thousands of people.
Finally, important to keep on mind that the political power in place is a figure completely insignificant, as having no effect on facts and events.
