Highlights:

• In Bangui, the security situation remains volatile with ex-Seleka elements in Beal camp in Bangui threatening to detonate the site if their demands are not met by the transitional Government.

• On 28 November, transitional President Samba-Panza presided over the official ceremonies at Ngaraba School to commemorate the reopening of schools in CAR.

• On 24 November, a MINUSCA convoy was attacked close to Kabo village, 20 km from Boali, and as a result, an anti-Balaka element was killed during the exchange of gunfire while two MINUSCA soldiers were wounded.

• Fourteen cholera cases have been confirmed along the CAR-Cameroon border. WHO also reported six measles cases in Yongoro-Mbolaye in Nana Mambéré Province, and two suspected cases of measles were detected on the ‘S’ site in Bambari. Also of concern, in the enclaved community of Yaloke, 42 suspected tuberculosis cases were reported.

• The current fund utilisation rate stands at 87 per cent. Without additional resources, UNICEF will not be in a position to meet its annual targets and provide the needed assistance to affected women and children.
