Cape Town — The Central African Republic's leader Francois Bozize has reportedly had his son arrested for failing to pay a huge hotel bill.
Kevin Bozize was detained for several days for not paying U.S.$15 000 at a five-star hotel in the country's capital, according to AFP.
Included in the bill was the cost of a room along with meals and services.
According to the BBC, both the head of the hotel and the president's son were initially detained when Kevin refused to pay the bill.
The president's son is said to be one of several prominent national figures who owe money to the luxury hotel and risk being put on trial unless they settle immediately, The Guardian website reported.
