From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Anti-balaka is a name for a group of Christian militias in the Central African Republic. They are the main militias fighting the Seleka rebels.[1] Anti-balaka means "anti- machete" or "anti-sword" in the local Sango and Mandja languages.[2]

In September 2021, Eugène Ngaïkosset, anti-balaka leader and former member of President François Bozizé's close guard, was arrested. Eugène Ngaïkosset is accused of numerous crimes in the CAR.[3]
