Muammar Gaddafi
Johannesburg - Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi is headed for Zimbabwean or Angolan exile following a deal brokered by SA, Al Jazeera reported on Monday.
Gaddafi, it appears, is not on his way to SA itself.
If Gaddafi is to go to Zimbabwe, he would not be the lone African leader in exile there. Former Ethiopian president Mengistu Haile Mariam, referred to in some parts as the "Butcher of Addis", has been in exile in Harare since being driven from power in 1991
Earlier, the department of international relations and co-operation said it had not made an offer of asylum to the Libyan dictator who might flee his country at any time.
It was reported by AFP that the sound of heavy fighting had been heard on Monday near Gaddafi's residence in central Tripoli after rebel forces surged into the capital on Sunday, taking over many districts.
"The strongman's whereabouts are unknown although he broadcast three audio messages on Sunday as rebel forces were sweeping through the capital and taking over the symbolic Green Square in the heart of the city," AFP added.
