THE African Union (AU) recognised the National Transitional Council (NTC) as Libya's de facto government on Tuesday, removing another piece of diplomatic support for ousted leader Muammar Gaddafi.

The pan-African body, which has frequently been criticised for its ponderous reaction to events on its doorstep, said in a statement it was ready to support the NTC in its efforts to build an inclusive government.

It also urged the NTC to protect African migrant workers following reports of black Africans being targeted by militia units hunting down mercenaries loyal to Gaddafi.

Most European nations, the United States and Nigeria recognised the NTC from Aug. 22, while China officially acknowledged the Benghazi-based group as Libya's "ruling authority" on Sept. 12.

The AU's switch is likely to bring a modicum of pressure to bear on leaders such as Zimbabwe's Robert Mugabe, who expelled Libya's ambassador at the end of August after the envoy switched allegiance from Gaddafi to the NTC.

It also suggests South Africa, the continent's pre-eminent economic power which has a major say in AU policy, is also ready to switch sides and bring itself into line with realities on the ground, the West and regional rival Nigeria.

South African support for Gaddafi, who helped build the AU, had its roots in a long-standing relationship between the two countries based on Libya's backing for the African National Congress in its struggle against white-minority apartheid rule.

South African President Jacob Zuma has led AU delegations trying to broker a peace deal for Libya. Zuma has criticised the European Union and NATO for using force to bring about change in Libya and has called for Gaddafi's officials to be a part of a transitional government.

Ni vizuri kungojea hiyo muda wote badala ya kuwatambulisha NTC rasmi. Lakini AU ni hopeless sana kwa sababu hawawezi kuzuia chochote.:(

AU ni bendera hufuata upepo wa MAGHARIBI. Marekani walipomkubali Gadafi baada ya suala la ndege iliyoanguka Lokabi, AU walimkubali Gadafi hadi kukaribia kumfanya Raisi wa Afrika. Nenda Dodoma au Kampala ukaone Misikiti ya Gadafi. Sasa leo Marekani na Ulaya wamemgeuka Gadafi nasi pia sasa eti hatumtaki. Hivi ajenda ya AU nini? Nitawaheshimu sana kama mtaacha kuendesha AU kwa misaada ya Ulaya ama sivyo Afrika ndiyo imekwama hivyo. Leo Gadafi nani anajua ajenda yao labda kesho ni wewe. Tusishabikiye sana uvamizi huu wa bara letu, AU amkeni.

Tatizo la AU ni kutojiamini. Wana act in response to the supper powers needs. Hawawezi kuanzisha, kupinga jambo kinyume na matakwa ya mataifa makubwa ndo maana wanasikilizia mpaka wasikie msimamo wa magharib ndo nao wanajipendekeza. Waoga, wanafiki na ni vigeugeu. Kama wanajiamini viongozi wa Africa waseme kwa herufi kubwa kuwa WAKO TAYARI KUWAUNGA MKONO WAASI/NGUVU YA UMMA POPOTE ITAKAPOTOKEA AFRICA. Kwamba AU msimamo wake sasa ni kuwa wananchi wakiichoka serikali yao waingie mtaani na siraha wapigane . Does it imply that AU's MODUS OPERAND is now on violence bases when solving internal conflicts? Or hii nispecial for Libya. Na hiyo international community inayounga mkono waasi eti wanakataa udictator wa Ghadaff mbona wasihamasishe wapalestina watumie nguvu dhidi ya Israel ? Viumoja umoja hivi havina mpango kama haviwezi kutetea haki bila woga heri fijifie tu kuliko kupukutisha pesa za waafrika.
