Centrafric: International Women’s Day, melt in Jubilation, rumbling discontent and claiming

Michal Mamadou

BANGUI (LNC) — Commemoration of the International Women’s Day, celebrated throughout CAR, a certitude, but in a divided country, “the republic of BANGUI” on a side, and the “rest” on the other side, in a striking dichotomy.

If in Bangui women were joyful and demonstrative, with eases and opportunities in the Capitale, on the reverse in provinces, with crisis raging at every single level, that was the disenchantment; fuelled with women claims, and the whole sprinkled with heavy and silent anger against the absolute inaction of the political powers.

A very wide range of activities organised to animate this day, but very contrasted regarding enthusiasm. In Bangui, Faustin Touadera launched the festivities in the Lakouanga neighbourhood, precisely, at the ‘Parc du Cinquantenaire’, coloured by women’s outfits; animating activities such as conferences, debates here, sales exhibitions there, or again information campaigns.

Several women’s associations like ‘Afrique secours assistance’ (ASA) – coming there to support women migrants, refugee women and poor women – or the organisation called “Femmes en danger” (FED), was there too, taking that opportunity to point out that the situation of women in CAR is particularly tragic. Others, to increase interest of young women on matter of gender-based violence.

However, the biggest part of the party, took place in the morning in the 8th district at the UCATEX area.


At Berbérati, the celebration of this special has been filled by a silent protest march of women, heading to the regional prefecture to deliver a memorandum to the Prefet. The document enclosed a catalog of their claiming, to be send to the government: pleas for a better living, Safety, health, repair of roads, etc.. and more symptomatic, the construction of a university in Berbérati.

Higher, at the extreme North, in Birao (Vakaga), There was also same claims coming from women, but in a larger scale. Women commemorating in communion with their Zambian colleagues from Minusca, in sad enjoyment in the city, during this day which is theirs.

Pleas of women of Birao, just like somewhere else in other cities in province, were a synthesis of  recurring troubles in the Centrafric. They asked for emancipation, conditions conducive to the restoration of peace and stability in a country, a need of security, a factor of social cohesion and integration, decent work opportunities and girls’ education, among all, in this zone where schools hardly work only during a quarter of a year. So far, a region, since a while, still forgotten by the so very centralized administration of Bangui.
