Central African Republic Former deposed president Francois Bozize Sunday announced his candidacy in the December presidential elections, despite having an arrest warrant for alleged crimes against humanity.
Bozize, who is also under United Nations (UN) sanctions, announced his candidacy in the capital, Bangui, before a congress of his Kwa na Kwa party (Work, Nothing but Work).
The former president, 73, was deposed from presidency in 2013 during a rebellion waged mainly by northern Muslims.
