AFRICANGLOBE – Three ex-rebels shot dead by French troops in the capital of the Central African Republic on Sunday were members of the presidential guard and were “killed in cold blood”, the CAR presidency said. “They were killed in cold blood by members of Sangaris,”presidential spokesman Guy Simplice Kodegue said yesterday, referring to the French force sent this month to disarm ex-rebels sowing chaos in the country.

They are “members of the presidential guard,” he told reporters. President Michel Djotodia, who became the first Muslim leader of the majority Christian nation after a March coup, was formerly leader of the Seleka rebel coalition. He has officially disbanded Seleka, but some members went rogue, leading to months of killing, raping and pillaging — and prompting Christians to form vigilante groups in response.

The French army said its troops opened fire in Bangui on Sunday against “a group of half-a-dozen people suspected of being ex-Seleka” and who “were preparing to use their weapons”.

But the presidential spokesman said the shooting was unprovoked.

“This was not a disarmament operation and no shots were fired, contrary to what was reported in certain French media,” Kodegue added.
He said the ex-rebels were driving in a vehicle when they were stopped and executed.


  1. It is the evil Arabs now distablising Africa, no Arab and Islamic terrorist propogand decive us, we know our enemy of this century: it is the hairy Arabs and Radical Islam. Arabs and Radical Islam are slaughtering black people in Egypt, Sudan, Libya, Mali, Nigeria, Kenya, Somalia … and now CAR. WE KNEw, SHUT UP ARAB SLAVES!

  2. U don’t get it. France creates the problem in the first place. Then they come uninvited to screw it up some more. Who in invited France? Don’t you know France colonised these same countries and havent let it go yet? They just install a puppet who to steal from. And when the people get fed up and kick him out, they send their troops to take Care of it. This is usually preceded by false reports and lies by the media.and then use the in to do their dirty work . Example, Mali, ivory coast and now car. They are broke now so they want to come back and take more minerals. This is the same situation with south Sudan and the us.

  3. Its obvious that its you who needs more schooling. For you to spew your garbage, i guess its okay for france to send troops into African countries? What the hell are other so called African countries doing? What is the job of the AU? You are an ignorant ass.

  4. The situation CAR was about religion initially but was about politics. The former President François Bozizé had a lot of political opposition who eventually united to form the rebel group Selaka. Not all of the Selaka are Muslim but were just political opponents against Francois government. I think by the way people like you are reacting to the situation over there is the main reason why Chinese Troops should be deployed to the country. The Chinese are neither Christian or Muslim so they would handle the situation fairly.

  5. I wish you are a little bit carful with Islamic forces in Africa, no matter what color they have Islamic forces are middle eastern in their heart, NOT AFRICAN. Every African should support Franch soldiers.

  6. Yeah and 47 Black African nations will just sit on their azz and watch the French colonize there like they sat by and watched them recolonize Mali!

  7. Adeolu .FYI the former President was a french puppet . Obviously the people got rid of him And the french don’t like it. Same situation in Mali and ivory coast. as an African u need to do more research on these things and don’t spew nonsense. U must know the source of all major conflict in africa in from outside. Mainly France US .so please educate urself and in turn others aswell

  8. President Michel Djotodia should ask the Chinese to deployed peacekeepers because the Chinese will be completely neutral in the sectarian violence that’s currently going on. Also since Djotodia has good ties to Russia it may not be a bad idea to ask Putin for help. If the country is ever split in two, One half pro -France while the other half pro-China, I can almost guarantee that within 10years the Pro-China half will be 10X more developed than the Pro-French half.

  9. We need to not let these white people take over Africa. Every country touched by the Europeans have been used to the point of collapse of its native people. They need to be kicked out.
