A recent book review in The Economist held that publicity-wise, the term “Heart of Darkness” should go to the Central African Republic (CAR) instead of the Congo. Yes. This reader knows of few serious studies about CAR in English other than this great book. The CAR attracted, briefly, worldwide attention in 1977 when its then president Bokassa (r. 1966-79) crowned himself emperor. Today, the CAR is news because of an ongoing, cruel and bloody conflict between its Muslims and Christians. Is this the full explanation? The full extent of the carnage may never be known. What explains the current mayhem and religious hatred?

(1) Memories of a long tradition of slavery across much of the African Sahel, particularly in Sudan and Chad, have poisoned relations between Muslims and non-Muslims, and internal north-south relations to the present day: Chad has miraculously remained one nation. But Sudan split in July 2011 into two disaster-prone, separate entities. In the CAR Muslims and non-Muslims appear to have co-existed peacefully from colonial times onwards and continued doing so since independence. For generations resident Muslim Sudanese merchants and traders bought and sold products in the CAR and worked in other capacities, often as citizens.
(2) What upset this peaceful co-existence is due, again, to dynamics and events north in Sudan and Chad. Heavily armed, highly mobile, foreign, mostly Arab forces called “Seleka” recently invaded the CAR, grabbed control of its capital and installed a puppet head of state and cabinet. After months of chaos and lawlessness with impunity, CAR’s first Muslim president was forced by a conference of regional leaders gathered in Ndjaména, to step down. The CAR is currently the scene of revenge killings of Muslims.
