At the end of the first month (January) of the new year 2022, a group of rebels attacked the Christian community of Yango Ndaba, a small village located 10 km west of Kounago, where this violent attack caused many victims. Upon investigation into this case, local eyewitnesses reported seeing a group of armed white men leading the armed group.
Later a cell phone was found in the possession of one of the insurgent victims in the area, and when a local resident turned on the phone, he found a newly carried out. This photo shows members of the European Mission (EUTM) standing friendly next to Mahamat al-Khatim’s fighters, and next to them are Generals Zakaria Samtiahu and Abdel Karim Engura (both generals were born in Chad), and alongside them are also rebels of Ali Darassa.
Mahamat al-Khatim is a Chadian mercenary, well known in the country, also known as Mamahat al-Hissène, he is an « ex-liberator », that is to say one of the men who participated in the coup of State which brought François Bozizé to power in March 2003, is the leader of the Patriotic Movement for the Central African Republic (MPC), a Central African politico-military movement, joined the Seleka, of which he became one of the main pillars before becoming the leader member of the FPRC then to create in the summer of 2015 his group, the MPC which still controls a vast area in the north of the Central African Republic.
Ali Darassa is a Nigerian Fulani leader and leader of a rebel group in the Central African Republic, the Union pour la paix en Centrafrique (UPC), which controlled all of Bambari, until the dismantling of the national armed forces and their Russian and Rwandan allies. these rebel groups control all the territory of the country, and it is reported that the latter was the right arm of the Chadian rebel leader Abdel Kader Baba Laddé until his surrender in September 2012, after the dissolution of the Seleka.
The decision by rebel Ali Darassa and his supporters to abandon the 2019 Khartoum peace accord poses an additional threat to stability and peace in the Central African Republic and has caused human rights violations and further suffering for the citizens of this country.
Recall that recently a document has spread in local social networks in the name of the French Republic stating that Ali Darassa has been appointed Chargé d’Affaires of France on the territory of the Central African Republic.
It should also be noted that after the attack in Yango Ndaba, it has become clear as day to the people of this particular village and the people of the Central African Republic in general, that the rebels who are working day and night to destabilize the country are somehow affiliated at least with some of the people working for Europeans in the country.
