  • It’s a crisis which should never have happened because the country has the potential to feed itself
  • I call on my children, especially the anti-balaka, to put down their arms and stop all the fighting. The same goes for the ex-Seleka - they should not have fear. I don't want to hear any more talk of murders and killings. Starting today, I am the president of all Central Africans, without exclusion.
  • Now, in the Central African Republic, is the time to break the cycle of suffering, to align this day of opportunity with tomorrow and the day after, and the way to do it … is one day and one person at a time. Changing lives so that occupants become citizens, and citizens change their countries.
