The President of the Association of Peace and Reconciliation in the Central African Republic, Ismaïla Famby Mandjo, said he was satisfied with the first festival organized For young people and street children, on Wednesday 23 August 2017, in Bangui.
Organized around the theme “holidays in peace and reconciliation”, this great music festival aims to offer young people and street children moments of rejoicing.
Ismaïla Famby Mandjo regretted the fact that these children “are left behind and live in utter destitution”.
He cited as an example the lack of beds for these children, the lack of access to health care, the lack of schooling and even the lack of access to food.
In order to better conduct the activity, three orchestras were invited. It is Zokéla Hiti Maïti from Dibaba to La Gomme; Of New Scripture of Ozaguin and Sapéké Mother House of Losséba Ngoutiwa.
The comic group “Les Perroquets” was also part of the game.
It should be noted that this festival was marked by games and contests, including interpretations and dances.
The winners received prizes ranging from 5,000 to 50,000 CFA francs.
After this festival, the Peace and Reconciliation Association proposes to set out on Bria, the capital of the Prefecture of Haute Kotto, with a view to providing medical assistance to the displaced persons of the PK3 site.
Recall that the Peace and Reconciliation Association is an initiative that was launched in 2013. Its ambition is to promote peace and reconciliation in the Central African Republic, a peace and reconciliation put to a severe test as a result of the perverse effects of The great crisis that arose in the country as a result of the Rebellion of the Seleka coalition and which has as a corollary the massacres of the populations, looting and destruction of private and public property.
Ismaïla Famby Mandjo persists and expects that the Central Africans of the diaspora will return to their country to both participate in its construction and to help their compatriots in distress.
