African solidarity with Libyans

Zimbabwe has decided to throw out Libya’s ambassador. Why? Because the Libyans gave up on Gaddafi.

Zimbabwe has given Libya’s ambassador to Harare 72 hours to leave the country.

Zimbabwe’s Foreign Minister Simbarashe Mumbengegwi said Tuesday the decision was made after the Libyan embassy declared its allegiance to Libya’s Transitional National Council [TNC].

Last week during a protest, Ambassador Taher Elmagrahi and embassy staff members burned the flag used by Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi. They then raised the flag being used by the anti-Gadhafi TNC.

Mumbengegwi told reporters Zimbabwe does not recognize the TNC as Libya’s legitimate government.

As though the Zimbabwe government has any expertise in recognising a legitimate government.
