Dismas Nkunda: Why Gaddafi mattered for Africa

The Observer "With the conflicting news coming out of Tripoli that Africa’s strong man was about to fall I could not but worry what we as a continent will miss.

Forget about the kings and queens who must be moaning the loss of free monies from the most magnanimous individual the continent has known for the last 42 years, but rather what we as Africa will lose. Even when you hate Gaddafi with all the trappings of his ego, there was simply no African person who had the same courage as Gaddafi."
