In order to persuade Governmen, separatists have closed schools, markets and have imposed a cerfew. The protest is against President Paul Birya's  Government. The government is french Speaking while the majority of the population speaks English. There is no statement from any group about the kidnappings, no group has taken responnsibilty yet. Birya is expected to take the oath for the presidential seat for the seventh consecutive time on Tuesday.
