The increasingly fragile political and security situation has not only worsened the economic outlook for 2013, it has also made it highly uncertain. Despite the peace deal signed in Libreville on 11 January 2013, resulting in a national unity government, the Seleka rebels launched an offensive on the capital, Bangui, on 22 March 2013, setting up a new regime. Chief rebel Michel Djotodia proclaimed himself president, while former president François Bozizé was forced into exile. The events also sparked extensive looting and the destruction of public and private property in Bangui.
