    Libyan leader, Col. Muammar Gadaffi, yesterday caused a scene at the African Heads of State Summit in Speke Resort Munyonyo when he slapped one of his aides in public for taking him to a wrong venue of the meeting. He was supposed to go to Meera Hall where other Presidents were waiting to start a meeting but his protocol team led him to Victoria Hall.

    Col. Gadaffi came riding across the extensive grounds of the plush resort on an electronic-powered cart as has become the normal means of conveyance for some of the leaders. He then climbed the staircase leading to the hall but midway, a presidential guard told his aides that they were taking him to a wrong venue.

    He turned to his aide and they started talking in Arabic before he swung his hand and slapped him twice on the nape of his neck. His guards shielded him from journalists who were hurrying to take this picture. He later rode back on the cart with his burly guards and presidential guards surrounding him.

    One hour later, he returned and entered the meeting where Presidents were discussing the theme of the summit; maternal, infant, child health and development. The Libyan leader’s body guards then engaged in yet another round of pushing and shoving – as they had done on Sunday- as he entered the hall.

    Hardly 30 minutes later, he strode out of the meeting, picked a plastic chair and sat in the gardens where he told his aides to call Tanzanian President Jakaya Kikwete. He then told his aides to prepare him tea on a charcoal stove.

    “What is this man doing?” asked a delegate from South Africa as many delegates crowded to see what was going on. His presence attracted the attention of delegates and journalists who started taking his pictures before he angrily lifted the chair and hid among the flowers.

    Ugandan presidential security and Gadaffi’s guards threw a security ring around the gardens as all this was taking place. By press time, Col Gadaffi was preparing to have a barbeque with other presidents.

    My Take:

    This is crazy, the guy stepped out of the meetings and asked his aides to prepare him tea on a charcoal stove. I am curious to know whether our president joined him outside; but all jokes a side,Gadaffi is plainly a ruthless dictator who is so obsessed with himself. He is a disgrace to peoples of Libya and Africa in general.

    Ever since the 1969 coup Col Qadhdhafi has never ceased to amaze the world with his antics.

    But the right perspective here, in keeping with the modal Arab mind, this is not going to be view as uncivilized in the Arab world (those people still do beheadings on public square for gods sake, what is a slap on the neck ?) .Rather it is going to play in the Colonel's favor in keeping with their "Strong Man Complex", that the aides was served right for misdirecting "Our dear leader"

    A shame.

    Na huyo Kikwete asipoangalia atakuwa errand boy wa Qadhdhafi.

    Mnaweza kumhukumu vyovyote na hata historia pia inamhukumu ndiyo maana hataki upuuzi. Una uhakika gani kiusalama na huko walikompeleka? Unajua malengo ya wasaidizi wake kumpeleka huko? Lazima wajifunze. I hope VD atakuwa amepewa picha ya jisi ya kufanya kazi na wasaidizi wazembe. Hakuwa kwenye mood tena

    Many have come, many have gone. Came Bokassa, he is gone; Later on Mobotu, he is gone; within the same time there was Kamuzu Banda, he is gone...... just to mention a few. He too will go. The time is yawning for them.

    Slap-ping is not a big issue as far as Col G is concern: He is used to it:

    But: BOLD/RED text below says a lot about who is Lt G!

    Gaddafi muscles back into AU

    By Aaron Maasho

    News - East Africa: Gaddafi muscles back into AU*(Page 1 of 2)

    Kampala - Six months after reluctantly handing over the African Union presidency, Libya's maverick leader Muammar Gaddafi has tried once again to stamp his authority and his petrodollars on the body's agenda.

    The first phase of his attempted reconquest at this week's AU summit in Kampala was the now predictable Gaddafi roadshow, comprised of a retinue of traditional kings as well as young supporters plastering the city with posters of the leader and lining the roads with welcome banners.

    "We came to meet the great leader, a leader who initiated the African Union," Sheikh Harun Ssengooba, a Ugandan representative of the Union of Muslim Councils for Eastern and Southern Africa told AFP.

    Ushered in with flags whose green colour owed more to the Libyan revolution than AU livery, Gaddafi was then flanked at the opening ceremony by some of the colourful tribal leaders who crowned him "King of Kings of Africa" in 2008.

    The notoriously extravagant leader was alone of the more than 30 heads of state staying at the Speke Munyonyo resort outside Kampala to have a tent set up on the grounds and a private entrance to the hotel.

    But while Gaddafi was once again the summit's chief entertainer, he has had his work cut out to re-assert his political clout.

    Gaddafi's tenure as AU chairman in 2009 caused some embarrassment in the organisation, with many diplomats irked by his habit of bypassing the AU Commission, its executive body.

    The veteran leader, who was never elected but has ruled Libya since 1969, tried to cling to his chairmanship of the organisation in January but eventually had to yield to Malawi's President Bingu wa Mutharika in a vote.

    This year's summit in Uganda has been dominated by the aftermath of deadly bombings in Kampala and pledges to adopt a more decisive approach to solving Somalia's woes.

    But diplomats said Gaddafi's ministers forced the inclusion in the summit's agenda of a discussion on the United States of Africa, which has been his pet project for years but remains a divisive issue among member states.

    "They (the Libyan delegation) kept us awake until 3.00 or 4.00am by insisting on the inclusion of a different issue," one diplomat told AFP.

    To counter his own agenda's loss of momentum, Gaddafi stuck to a tried and tested method.

    Senegalese President Abdoulaye Wade said Gaddafi was offering $90-billion to help achieve a continental union.

    "Now, it's a question of defining the mechanism by which we should use this money," Wade told a meeting of the Community of Sahel-Saharan States (CEN-SAD) last week in Chad.

    Gaddafi also made it clear what he thought of the summit's official theme, which focuses on maternal and child health in Africa.

    "Maternity and infants? We are not UNICEF. Those things are UNICEF's job," he said in Chad.

    CEN-SAD is a key recipient of Libyan cash but Gaddafi received a cooler reception from his peers at the AU summit.

    The meeting's host, Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni, lashed out at "terrorists from the Middle East" in his opening, causing unease in the attendance, not least among the Arab heads of state.

    "Let them go back to Asia or the Middle East where I understand some come from," said Museveni, whose regime has been coming increasingly under the influence of pentecostal Christian churches.

    As a rebel leader in the early 1980s, Museveni sent several of his top deputies to Libya for training and has publicly acknowledged that the oil-rich Libyan regime financially supported his guerrilla war.

    After Museveni took power, Gaddafi visited Kampala often and certainly left his mark in the Ugandan capital by funding a massive mosque named in his honour on a hilltop that towers over much of the city.

    But the relationship has cooled in recent years, notably because Museveni has more or less dismissed Gaddafi's United States of Africa, which foresees a single government for the entire continent.

    Uganda has instead concentrated on uniting with four of its more immediate neighbours in the East African Community, whose institutions are gradually becoming operational.

    Everybody knows that Muamar Gaddafi is an insane criminal and terrorist (and his son Hannibal a choleric thug btw. ...).
    I can't understand how officials of other nations can still take him serios?!? I hope Libya will one day get rid of its cancer - the Gaddafi family...!
