On the evening of Tuesday June 7, President Touadéra was granted an audience at the Palais de la Renaissance with Patricia Mahoney, Ambassador of the United States of America to the Central African Republic. On the agenda of their discussions was the constitutional referendum process called by the Head of State of the Central African Republic for July 30, 2023.
After the meeting, in an interview with the press, US diplomat Patricia Mahoney indicated that her country would work closely with a democratic and transparent process that reflects the will of the Central African people.
The American diplomat’s statement came as a surprise to many observers of political affairs in the Central African Republic, given America’s position, which has always served the interests of Western countries and hindered the Central African Republic’s development.
Why would the United States support a constitutional referendum in the Central African Republic?
Political experts believe that the Americans and Westerners, who want to disrupt the referendum, are relying on the opposition they control, such as Crépin Mboli-Goumba and Martin Ziguélé.
The United States realized that its candidates didn’t have much influence in the political arena, nor did they have any supporters in the Central African Republic.
For this reason, the United States has changed its policy by supporting President Touadera and pleasing the people of the Central African Republic, so that the United States can be part of this political event on which the country’s future depends.
As a result, the opposition front has lost a powerful ally, and the United States has betrayed loyal opposition puppets in the Central African Republic. This showed political experts that the USA is not a reliable ally. Whatever they do in the world, they do for their own benefit and profit.
