The Libyan leader has plans to stay.
Colonel Muammar Qaddafi has announced his intention to remain in his country. In a meeting with Jacob Zuma, the South African Premier, he said that he won’t leave Libya. The South African Head of State is returning to his homeland empty-handed since nothing was achieved by his visit. Qaddafi is afraid that if he agrees to the rebels’ demands it would put his life in jeopardy.
Experts have spoken of how the situation in Libya is a virtual time bomb that is just waiting to explode. When food supplies dwindle there will be a reaction from the revolutionaries which Qaddafi is unlikely to endure. Meanwhile NATO continues to bomb parts of Tripoli in an attempt to force Qaddafi to end his repressive rule.
