Colonel Gaddafi or Muammar Gaddafi was a well-known Libyan politician and revolutionary. From 1969 to 1977, he ruled Libya as ‘Revolutionary Chairman’ then he switched to serve as the ‘Brotherly Leader’ from 1977 to 2011. Since an early age, he showed the signs of becoming a revolutionary despite coming from an underprivileged family. ‘National Transitional Council’ was a result of Gaddafi’s increased dominance, violation of human rights, and support to international terrorism that eventually dethroned Gaddafi and led to his untimely demise.
Libya descended into chaos since the fall of Muamar Gaddafi and western powers been scrambling over Libya’s natural resources which Gaddafi protected.
Muammar Gaddafi was assassinated in a western-backed coup to prevent the establishment of the “African Dinar” … A Pan-African Currency backed by African gold and mineral wealth that would undermine the West’s fiat monetary system and alter the global economic and financial environment. The African monetary system proposed by Gaddafi would’ve wiped out poverty from Africa, or at least reduce it’ll reduce poverty drastically across African nations.
Since Gaddafi was assassinated, no African leader speaks about his single African monetary project, a single military force and a single passport for all Africans to move freely around the continent of Africa! That was Gaddafi’s one of the greatest Pan-African goals. Its obvious that the breeds of African leaders we have today are puppets and they can’t summon the courage to challenge the West neo-colonialism and its hegemony in Africa like Gaddafi did. I shall continue to insist that our sovereign African countries work together to achieve the “United States Of Africa” with a single military force, a single currency and a passport for Africans to move freely around . Its better for an African to be hated and killed for having gut like a Lion, than to live cowardly on your knees forever like a sheep!
Muammar Al Gaddafi, your memory lives on in the hearts of Pan-Africanists.
The Lion of the Desert.
