Central African Republic: Former President Michel Djotodia decorated with jewelry in fake!

Far from the pomp of the coronation of Emperor Bokassa 1.

         In Bangui, at an auspicious ceremony, inspired by the coronation of Napoleon I, President Jean-Bedel Bokassa was crowned Emperor of the Central African Empire on December 4, 1977. More than 3,500 guests from forty countries are present, but no head of state moves for the occasion. The cost of the lavish coronation as emperor is estimated at 20 million U.S.D.. On September 20, 1979, when Bokassa I was visiting Libya, a non-violent coup led by former President David Dacko and backed by the French special forces, overthrew the emperor. David Dacko (the former President) restored the republic on September 21, 1979. This is the famous "Operation Barracuda".
         When Bokassa Ist died of a heart attack in 1996, his gold medals, his crowns of gold and diamonds, his precious jewels that should have belonged to the Central African state have disappeared. The Central African Republic becomes a bum State. The richness of Bokassa rest his descendants: 39 children recognized, given to him by 17 women of all nationalities.

Fake medals for an interim president, former rebel.

         Last former president of Central African Republic, Michel Djotodia, was the victim of a hoax. At his swearing in, 36 years after the Bokassa coronation, he wore fake ornaments.
         The Director of Treasury, Judes Alex Ketté, was accused of embezzling money ornaments. He was arrested by the authorities.
         The Director General of the Central Treasury, Judes Alex Ketté, was arrested for fraud after authorities have discovered that the decorations worn by President Michel Djotodia during his swearing-in, on Augustus 18, 2013, were false, according to investigators. On the instructions of the public prosecutor, Judes Alex Ketté was taken into custody to view the gendarmerie. He was accused of stealing some of the money for the purchase of jewelry to adorn by President Michel Djotodia, at the ceremony of swearing.
The dream of a former official: Restoring the splendor of the empire!

         On March 23, 2013, former civil servant of ministry finance and the Plan, Michel Djotodia proclaimed himself president of the Central African Republic after a rebellion that now pits Christians to Muslims. He still led the splendor of the coronation of Bokassa I to access the presidency: jewelry, medals, gances and golden cords. To ensure his safety, he called on French mercenary, fromRoussel G-Sécurité” a french company to the chagrin of the Elysee. He is knighted president by a national transitional council. He decided to be sworn on August 18, 2013.
         But this is one of his former colleagues of finances Ministry play him a dirty trick. A president of a banana republic, must wear fake jewels and medals!

To him the jewelry in CFA francs to me their value in Euros!

           According to a source in the Central police, the director of the Treasury pocketed a portion of the amount for the ornaments to the tune of 600 million CFA francs (910,000 euros), with the complicity of a Senegalese jeweler, a man 'Central business and responsible of the Chancellery. Upon his arrest, he was sacked. Furthermore, it was also within the scope of prosecution for embezzlement and forgery.
This is not the first time that Jules Ketté Alex finds himself embroiled in a case of misappropriation. Indeed, it was previously arrested in 2011 in connection with the investigation into a scandal of misuse of more than two billion CFA (3.05 million euros) at the expense of National Urban Transport Company (SO.NA.T.U.), a public company created thanks to funding from India.

 Djotodia Nondokro Am-Michel: A Muslim unbaptized who bears a Christian name.

         Djotodia Nondokro Am-Michel was born in 1949 into a Muslim family of Goula ethnic group in the region of Vakaga where he was called Deya, named after his father, former fighter of the French army.          Very young, he left his village to live as Gordil at Birao the capital of Vakaga, where his father touched a military pension from France.
         He is enrolled in primary school in Birao and in the college at Bambari where a Christian teacher assigns him the name "Michel", presumably so he can more easily obtain a scholarship in order to study abroad. Indeed, after the end of his secondary school, he flew to the Soviet Union, where he will live for some fourteen years.
         Upon his return, Djotodia lives between Vakaga, where he started a family and created a business, and Bangui, the capital, where he held various positions in Government: at ministry of Finance and Plan.
         In 1998, he entered politics by running for election to Birao under the banner of the Movement for Democracy and Development (M.D.D.) of former president David Dacko (1930-2003), but fails against the candidate of President Ange Félix Patassé (1937-2011).
         Official polyglot (he speaks Angalis Arabic, French and Russian) to request the position of consular representative in the Darfur town of Nyala escapes him somewhat, but he ends up getting it in 2005 in favor of a change of government. Indeed, after the coming to power of François Bozizé in 2003, Djotodia approaches the new regime through Yakite Levy and Jean-François Bozizé, the son of the head of state.

A treacherous and dishonest politician like Rabah
Rabah Fadl Allah (1845-1900)!

         Before the 2005 presidential elections, he pretends to support Bozizé with the Coordination frameworks to support the candidacy of the latter for the coveted post of consul of the Central African Republic in Nyala few weeks later. He soon began to conspire against Bozizé who reminds Bangui.
         The Muslim Sudan prefers to deport him to Cotonou, Benin where he family. At the head of the Union of Democratic Forces for Unity (U.F.D.R.), it triggers the first civil war.
         But Benin refuses to support his rebellion against the regime of François Bozizé. On November 20, 2007, he was arrested (with his colleague and spokesperson Abakar Sabon) by the Benin authorities on request of President François Bozizé. In February  2008, after eighteen months of imprisonment without trial, Djotodia is released on condition to participate in the peace agreements with the regime increasingly unpopular François Bozizé. While his colleague joins the government, he remains for 4 years in Cotonou,  where he remarried a businesswoman.

His imprisonment won him the aura of a martyr and leader of the rebellion.

         In December 2012, Djotodia returned to Central  Africa and joined the underground to found Séléka, a coalition of political parties and rebel forces opposed to the C.A.R. president. He became the key figure and head of 20,000 Chadian mercenaries, Libyan and Sudanese, quickly captured a large part of the country.
         Despite the awkward support of the South African army, Bozizé losing the war accepts peace agreements Libreville in January 2013, appoints a prime minister from the opposition and the rebels incorporated into the national unity government led by counsel Nicolas Tiangaye.
         Djotodia occupies the key post of Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of National Defence from February 2, 2013, but these agreements are violated by Seleka Bozizé who  hunt Bozize from power in March 2013. The latter fled to Cameroon then wanders between Paris, Kampala to permanently exile in Bujumbura, Burundi. Djotodia proclaimed himself president of the Republic March 25, 2013, he  tried unsuccessfully to dissolve Seleka.

The country descended from bad to worse.

         After the peace agreement in Libreville, Gabon in January 2013, he was appointed Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of National Defence in the national unity government headed by Nicolas Siangaye. At the head of the Seleka, he removed President François Bozizé from power on March 24, 2013 and became president of the Republic. On April 13, 2013, a National Transitional Council confirmed him to his post.
         On August 18, 2013, he took the oath as president of transition adorned with false ornaments and fake medals ... with swindling the General Manager of the Treasury and a Senegalese jeweler!

The most tumultuous presidency and the shortest of CAR.

         He resigned at the same time that Prime Minister Nicolas January 10, 2014 request of Heads of States of the Economic Community of Central Africa (C.E.M.A.C.). He was replaced by Catherine Samba-Panza, after a very short acting parliament speaker Alexander Ferdinand N'Guendet. He took refuge in Benin. His regime lasted just 18 months. With the chaos sparked by his accession to power, the Central African Republic was definitely disorganized.

The French remember the head and the hand "trenches" of Commander Francois-Joseph-Amédée Lamy!

Before the Central African anarchy, France remembers with bitterness of his bloody colonial adventure and terrible complex of Facoda. Indeed, on August 29, 1899, Commander Robillot of the Decornet company had run violently at Kouno against Muslim troops from another Muslim Oubangui-Chari named Rabah Fadl Allah (1845-1900), a vassal of the Mahdi of Sudan, Muhammad Ahmad ibn Abd Allah Al-Mahdi (1844-1885). On 21 and 22 March 1900, the troops of Commander François-Joseph-Amedée Lamy (whose name will be given to the capital of Chad, Fort-Lamy now N’Djaména), had been crushed to Kousseri (now Cameroon) by Muslim hordes of Rabah, despite the support of Sultan Gaourang's cavalry from Baguirmi. During the decisive battle of April 22, 1900, the commander Lamy was killed, his head and his right hand trenches and sent to the French admnistrator Emile Gentil.

The Cinderella of the Empire wakes!

         For France of Francois Hollande even without the necessary resources, it was necessary to intervene in Central Africa to prevent the repetition of colonial history, never ended. Even create an African coalition under the aegis of the United Nations. A Muslim power in Bangui is a Sword of Damocles on the edge of the Francophonie and of Christianity in Africa South of the Sahara (Congo, D.R.C., Burundi, Rwanda, Uganda ...) did not hesitate to send troops to the aid of French soldiers have threatened open Bangui. The episode of President Giscard Valery hunting elephant in N'Gbaka country with his cousin Bokassa followed by the Operation Barracuda had lived. The myth of the superiority of the white color had been replaced by the fear of Muslim genocide in the minds of anti-barakas face the atrocity of Seleka. That's the price of a bad decolonization pays dearly country of Abbot Barthelemy Boganda, whose motto was "Kwe Zo Zo" ("every human being is a person" or "a man as good as another").
The former Oubangui-Chari nicknamed "The Cinderella of the Empire" by Jean-Joël Brégeon, a former French administrator finally just woke up, but what will be the price of contempt long maintained by France against her?
