A group of concerned African leaders have issued a statement warning about Africa being re-colonised as Nato continues its support of the Libyan rebels.
Speaking to media in Johannesburg today, leaders released a letter lamenting “misuse of the United Nations Security Council to engage in militarised diplomacy to effect regime change in Libya” and the “marginalisation of the African Union”.
University of Johannesburg head of the politics department Professor Chris Landsberg spoke for the group saying Nato has violated international law.
