CAR interim President Michel Djotodia resigns

BANGUI - Central Africa Republic's interim President Michel Djotodia has resigned at a regional summit aimed at ending violence that has engulfed the country.

CAR's entire transitional assembly is attending the meeting in Chad organised by regional leaders.

Mr Djotodia, CAR's first Muslim leader, had been resisting pressure to go.

His seizure of power last year has led to 20% of the population fleeing their homes amid fighting between Christian and Muslim militias.

The ICC should be getting out its warrant for this guy given all the murders committed by his people in his name. While at it Mrs Zuma the AU chair should apologise to the ICC over the accusation that it targets Africans...The same Zuma should promise not to stand in the way of Salvir Kiir and his deputy when they are called to the same ICC to account for the murder of the children of the South Sudan. In fact she should facilitate their immediate handover to this body for the drums of blood they have shed unnecessarily for their unbridled greed..yah, Madam..get these two unrepentent vampires to the ICC YESTERDAY!!!!

If there were still thsoe who doubted the world is changing and Africa with it look no further than this brute imbecile who tried his hand at pulling a 70s whodunit? The world is moving far too fast and this must be a good lesson to those other African despots who are still living in the ark..Now he should take his medicine at the ICC like a man. Idiot!
