    Background: A QUIET END GENERALLY MARKED THE END OF THE TEN-YEAR-OLD CENTRAL AFRICAN FEDERATION. CONTRARY TO EXPECTATIONS THERE WERE NONE OF THE RECENT INCIDENTS BETWEEN THE TWO RIVAL POLITICAL PARTIES, THE AFRICAN NATIONAL CONGRESS AND THE UNITED NATIONAL INDEPENDENCE PARTY.

    A SIGN OF POLITICAL ACTIVITY TO COME ARE THE SLOGANS TO BE SEEN ON MANY HOUSES... ALL PART OF THE CAMPAIGN FOR THE GENERAL ELECTION DUE TO BE HELD LATER THIS MONTH.

    ALL MAY BE QUIET FOR THE CITIZEN, BUT FOR THE POLICE, VIGILANCE IS MAINTAINED IN PUBLIC MEETING PLACES LIKE THE BEER HALLS WHERE RIOTS OFTEN START FROM.

    YESTERDAY (THURSDAY) AFTER THE FIRST QUIET DAY OF THE FEDERATION'S BREAK UP, INTER-PARTY CLASHES RESUMED AND THREE PEOPLE WERE INJURED.
