In fact, the nature of weapons that are currently in the rebel?s hands are too sophisticated and expensive that the cost may run into hundreds of millions of US dollars. Is it a wonder that these rebels were able to recently capture many towns and cities in the Central African Republic, where they ordered many government forces to surrender? Rebels in the Central African Republic, with a population of about five million, is notorious for unrest including coups, army mutinies and rebellions. ?But how could the rebel fighters, many of whom are often wanted for prosecution get the ability to buy those expensive weapons in such large quantities with impunity? No matter how rich the rebel leaders might be at any point, their continues ability to afford the weapons in large quantities for such a very long period of time would be impossible to imagine, if they have no form of foreign sponsorship and the corporation of a few puppet politicians here in Africa.
