Gaddafi flees to refuge in Zimbabwe?

Libya’s ousted strong man, Col Muammar Gaddafi is reported to have fled to Zimbabwe where is being given refuge by President Robert Mugabe.

A report by the Daily Mail of the UK said Sunday it was claimed that Gaddafi has fled Libya to Zimbabwe on a jet provided by Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe, as rebels began the march on his home town.

According to the report President Mugabe’s political opponents claim their spies saw Gaddafi arrive in the country on a Zimbabwe Air Force jet in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

They say the Libyan dictator was taken to a mansion in Harare’s Gunninghill suburb, where agents from his all-female bodyguard were apparently seen patrolling the grounds, it says.

The 69-year-old Col. Gaddafi who had ruled Libya for 42 years faced the biggest challenge ever to his rule when six months ago a civil protest against him turned into military conflict when NATO joined forces with protestors to remove him from power by force.

The Arab world has seen unprecedented social and civil protests following the popular uprisings that toppled dictatorial regimes in Tunisia and Egypt.
