Three rebel groups who have called themselves Seleka have taken six towns including a mining town. The say that President Francious Bozize has failed to agree with the 2007 peace deal that would be inclusive to the opposition groups. They say that he only cares about his ethnic group and family. Chadian soldiers have only recently left after protecting his residence in Bangui, the capital of the state.
The Central African state's military lacks funding or motivation to prevail. Some military equiptment was stolen by the Seleka group and Central African soldiers taken prisoner.
It looks as if the Central African government isn't walking down the right road to peace.
If President Bozize gets this wrong his second term which began in March 2011 could be put in jeopardy and even dismal failure. He has to wake up, and change his policy.
This is one of the four countries that had those US advisors sent in to keep a brief the situation regarding the Lord's resistance group that rampaged through those states. This country has had almost no conflict with it's neighbours or even internally, plenty of crime though for sure.
