ALINDAO [LNC] – For weeks, attacks, counter-attacks and reprisals were bloody increasing in the Basse-Kotto, between the Ali DARASSA’s UPC militiamen and Anti-Balaka’s gunmen mixed with other ‘Self-defences’. A catastrophic situation, which led to the dire humanitarian situation in the Strip. 

In its monthly report published last May, the ‘Commission Mouvement de Populations’ (CMP) feeds by UN OCHA stated that 503,600 persons are displaced (IDPs) within the CAR. An increase of 14% over April. This, because of an unprecedented outbreak of violence in the country.


Fights in this Sub-prefecture took place in municipalities and villages of BAKOU, BELINGOUA, ZANGBA or again YABANGO, plus in addition ALINDAO and MOBAYE. Said a recent report in those zones of conflict in constant expansion and propensity.

Combats killed more than 28 people and wounded at least 60. Again a provisional death toll, not taking in account corpses remaining hidden in bush. Insecurity in the zone is so high that would be taking a big risks to venture over there for macabre countings. 

MINUSCA said they sent troops on ground, to patrol the conflict zone, located in the triangle of Alindao-Bangassou-Mobaye. Anyway, local elected representatives declared not having seen yet these peacekeepers.

One of them, Jérémie GOKORI-NDORO II, Deputy of ZANGBA stated: Sadly, the future appears worse.”

Power in Bangui always turned a deaf ear to his desperate calls.

  1. We are a group of volunteers and starting a new scheme in our
    community. Your site provided us with valuable
    information to work on. You’ve done an impressive job and our entire community will be grateful to you.

  2. I think that what you said was very reasonable. However, consider this, what
    if you wrote a catchier post title? I am not saying your content isn’t solid., however what if you added
    a title to maybe get folk’s attention? I mean CAR: Basse-Kotto
    still Under Siege! – Le Nouveau Centrafrique is a little boring.

    You could look at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create post titles to get viewers
    to click. You might add a video or a pic or two to get readers interested about
    everything’ve got to say. In my opinion, it could make
    your website a little bit more interesting.

  3. Hmm is anyone else encountering problems with the pictures on this blog loading?
    I’m trying to determine if its a problem on my end or
    if it’s the blog. Any feed-back would be greatly appreciated.

    as smartly as with the layout for your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you
