19-04-2009 The future of Paoua

Members of a self defense group in Paoua.
Due to the extreme shortage of police in the Central African Republic, neighborhoods organize their own security. These groups of young men patrol the streets; they settle disputes and prevent petty theft. Some groups outside Paoua are known to clash with rebels regularly.

Hope the State will come to manage.
