Even if at the beginning of the armed conflict between the Minister of the Interior and the Territorial Administration Mr. Jean-Serge Bokassa to the Director General of the Gendarmerie President Touadera remained neutral and silent in his camp, the last three weeks, At the request of the Director General of the Gendarmerie, he ended up arbitrating by clearly choosing his camp in order to put an end to this case.
At the beginning of 2017, a serious conflict broke out between Interior Minister Jean-Serge Bokassa and the Director-General of the National Gendarmerie. In the sights, the appointment of some gendarmes to positions of responsibility operated by Minister Bokassa. For the Director-General of this gendarmerie, all these appointments are counterproductive because not only was he not consulted upstream before making these appointments, but they correlated with clientelism, thanks for services rendered And nepotism.
