Zuma's Role In Congo & The Central African Republic
Still trying to figure out, as so many others I suppose, why intervention in CAR went into high gear just a few weeks ago. Still believe it has something to do with South Africa & Tanzania's involvement in Congo.
In october Francois Hollande paid a visit to Jacob Zuma and planned the conference that will take place in Paris in a few days.
In the meantime the #m23 has been defeated by the Congolese army with the help of the South African army. Jacob Zuma visited Kinshasa the day the crisis ended to send a clear message to foreign nations that backed #m23.
The role of the Burundian army in Somalia, Mali and now the Central African Republic indicates a strategic alliance is emerging between the South African and the French African blocks inside the African Union.
Burundi indicated it's readiness to send troops to the Central African Republic in july.
