BANGUI, Central African Republic (AP) — The rebel leader-turned-president in Central African Republic has fired his information minister, the latest in a series of fallouts with the allies who brought him to power.

The announcement of Christophe Gazam Betty's departure was carried Wednesday on national radio. No reason was given for his termination and no replacement was named.

The move, though, comes after a number of other terminations in Michel Djotodia's government at a time he is seeking to distance himself from the very rebels who brought him to power in March.

Already Djotodia has removed Cabinet ministers Nouredine Adam and Mohamed Moussa Dhaffane, both former prominent rebel leaders.

Last month Djotodia formally dissolved the rebel coalition known as Seleka, although the rebels are continuing to commit atrocities against civilians.
