HistoryEdit

On 25 December 2012 rebels from Séléka coalition took control of Kaga-Bandoro.[1] On 14 December 2015 rebels announced independence of Republic of Logone in Kaga-Bandoro. In September 2016 Kaga-Bandoro was reported to be under joint control of MPC and FPRC armed groups.[2] In December 2019 four armed groups were reportedly present in Kaga-Bandoro: MPC, FPRC, Anti-balaka and UPC.[3]

On 10 April 2021, the FACA and their Russian allies entered the city of Kaga-Bandoro.[4] This has caused the fleeing of the rebel forces previously occupying the town to the north towards Kabo and Batangafo.[4]
