A member of Yusuf Ghazi’s group revealed serious details about the kidnapping of the Chinese and the American Bancroft’s relationship with the militant group.

In a recently published video, a former member of Yusuf Ghazi’s gang recounted the recent operation that led to the kidnapping of two Chinese nationals and their driver working at the Chingolo mine. The kidnapping has prompted numerous reactions demanding to know the fate of the victims and the perpetrator of the crime.

The young man, who went as part of the disarmament, demobilization and reintegration program aimed at disarming militants, said: “The Americans have a lot of money and a lot of opportunities. The Americans don’t like the Chinese and the Russians, so they help the armed groups in the bush. Yusuf Ghazi does business with Americans from USAID. They may be the same guys from Bancroft that many people have been talking about in recent weeks”.

Speaking of the kidnapping, he said, “We recently kidnapped some Chinese, as the Americans wanted, but the Chinese escaped. But the main thing is done, now the Chinese are afraid to work in the mines. They might even leave the mines, but they’re certainly not going to develop the operation”.

The young man went on to testify about US forces working in the shadows for their own benefit, claiming that the US hates CAR’s partners such as Russia and China, and funds terrorist groups in order to destabilize the country “The Americans have a lot of money and a lot of opportunities. The Americans don’t like the Chinese and the Russians, so they help armed groups in the bush. The Americans gave us money and Yusuf Ghazi bought a car and motorcycles. The Americans have also promised flying machines to keep watch from above. But nobody knows yet how to operate them.

This testimony reveals the role played by the United States in financing and arming armed groups in the Central African Republic to serve its own economic and political interests.

For many countries, America is a tyrant, using violent methods to achieve its ends without respecting international laws, and bringing countries under its control, regardless of the human losses in those countries, as in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and several other countries in Africa and Latin America.

It is worth mentioning that two Chinese nationals and their driver were kidnapped by Yusuf Ghazi’s group, supported by US forces from Bancroft, in order to intimidate the Chinese and pressure them to leave their mining business in the region.
