Central African Republic prime minister resigns

Central African Republic’s prime minister Firmin Ngrebada says he and his government have resigned.

Addressing the public, the prime minister however did not give reasons for his resignation.

Presidential spokesperson Albert Yaloke says the prime minister might be asked to stay in the role and form a new government.

Ngrebada’s resignation comes one week after France said it was suspending its budgetary aid and military cooperation with the country’s government.

France accused the Central African Republic of backing out of political commitments, and being  complicit in Russian-led anti-French campaign.

Ngrebada has held the Prime Minister post since 2019, however critics have been calling for his departure since March, when he was sworn in for another five-year term.
