Mia Farrow, world renowned American actress and Goodwill Ambassador for the UN Children's Fund (UNICEF) visited the Central African Republic recently.

She travelled to one of the villages in the north-western region of the country where more than 40,000 people have been displaced by recent violence.

Although there is a transitional government entrusted with restoring law and order and paving the way for democratic elections, armed clashes have increased in that part of the country.

Self-defence units have been fighting with former members of a coalition of rebels, known as Séléka which launched a series of attacks in December last year and seized power in March forcing President François Bozizé to flee.

Derrick Mbatha reports.
