Rival Central African Republic (CAR) groups have signed a ceasefire deal in an effort to provide the country with a political solution, according to a statement by Kenya’s State House where the agreement was signed.

Kenya’s President Uhuru Kenyatta hosted the signing of the accord on Wednesday between Anti-Balaka leader Joachim Kokate and former president and ex-Seleka leader Michel Djotodia, which included a deal “to stop hostilities” and another to “open a new chapter of political stability in their country” by adhering to the transitional roadmap, the statement said.

Al Jazeera’s Catherine Soi, reporting from Nairobi, said that the talks held in Kenya since last November have been considered “very controversial because they are peace talks [between two armed groups] that don’t have the backing of the transitional government in CAR.
