    The mess in Libya

    It’s a complete messed up affair in Libya. The rebels are on a rampage, as Colonel Muammar Gaddafi exhibits callousness at the bloodshed and destruction all around. NATO also seems clueless as to how to deal with the situation as the international community is seen changing its positions on the reigning civil strife in the North African country.

    The recent onslaught of rebels over the city of Brega, home to Libya’s biggest oil facilities, goes on to indicate that there is no lull in warfare, and the country is ages away from any political solution. The proliferation of small groups across its length and breadth in which all and sundry are involved in taking a sizeable pie of resources is a bad omen. Taking into account the tribal texture of landscape, one fears the absence of governmental writ will not bode well for the territorial integrity and sovereignty ?of Libya.

    South African President Jacob Zuma, who had been involved in brokering peace and to a great extent convincing Gaddafi to relinquish power, has made a valid point. Talking to visiting British Prime Minister David Cameron, Zuma said Libyans’ craving for democracy can only be achieved if they collectively settled on an equation as to how to run the affairs of the country once Gaddafi is out. This is a meaningful statement and reflects the concern that Zuma, and his like, have for the war-torn country. The lack of consensus in dealing with the affairs of the state once Gaddafi steps down is proving to be a major impediment in addressing the crisis.

    The embattled leader who had hinted at stepping down and opting for a life in exile has gone back on his pledges and wishing to go down fighting. This is so because the rebels who had successfully cornered him, and even sought international acclaim, could not carry on with their initiatives in ensuring a realistic change of equation on the ground.

    The ensuing gunfight has simply compounded the problems and had to a great extent polarised the society and world community, alike. This is why Russia says that taking sides in civil commotion would be tantamount to abetting the strife. The Brega episode, however, should not ?be allowed to derail genuine reconciliation efforts.

    What’s behind road deaths?

    Road accident fatalities in 2013 stood at 651. Mathematically speaking, a little less than two lives were lost every day. While this number is lesser than the 720 deaths in 2011, it is by no means acceptable.
