Rulers of Oubangui-Chari (Ubangi-Shari)
by Juan Fandos-Rius
(UPDATED: 21 August 2016)
Created in 1903 Ubangi-Shari (Oubangui-Chari) was ruled by a Governor until 1960. After 1957 Ubangi-Shari achieved autonomous status and a local government was formed by Abel Goumba, Barthélemy Boganda's right-hand man. Boganda replaced Goumba as head of government (President of the Government) on 1 December 1958 and initiated the Central African Republic's way to independence, but David Dacko succeeded Boganda after his death in March 1959.
