AU roadmap is the only solution to Central African Republic crisis : South Africa
South Africa says the African Union roadmap is the only solution to the crisis in the Central African Republic (CAR).
This follows the resignation of the CAR interim president Michel Djotodia and Prime Minister Nicolas Tiangaye.
The political crisis in the CAR began last year when Djotodia, the leader of the Seleka rebels, ousted President Francoise Bozize.
His seizure of power saw the killing of 14 South African soldiers, with others dying later of their wounds.
International Relations Minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane says the African Union roadmap is still the sustainable way moving forward.
“The African Union roadmap on CAR was of the integration of forces on the ground and that they be an interim government, almost like a constituent assembly, that should then work towards democratic, peaceful, free and fair elections in the period of 18 months.”
