The execution of former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi creates an uneasy feeling about the situation in that country, President Jacob Zuma said on Tuesday.
Zuma told a business breakfast meeting in Cape Town it would have been better for Libyans if Gaddafi had been arrested and tried so that questions could be answered about how he had run the country for 41 years.
“In (the) world of human rights today there are courts to try those who are committing certain kinds of crime,” Zuma said.
“Those pursuing him were supposed to arrest him… Unfortunately he was killed.
“It has created an uneasy feeling about the situation in Libya.”
Zuma said he hoped Libya's National Transitional Council would “pull the country together”.
Gaddafi had responded to the Libyan uprising in a particular way which had brought the situation on him.
“Even when (the) situation got graver and graver he seemed to be thinking he could still defend his system,” Zuma said. – Sapa

I'm not surprised he feels uneasy! :D
Anytime you have the leader of a country who is suspected of enriching himself by taking a salary that is disproportionate to the norm and lines his own pockets through graft and corruption you should feel uneasy.
Anytime you have a president who ignores blatant corruption in his government and party, and not only sweeps it under the carpet, but keeps the same corrupt people around by simply re-deploying them to other positions you should feel uneasy.
Anytime you have a president who puts his own family first and re-directs government tenders and jobs to his own companies and family members you should feel uneasy.
Anytime you have a president who uses his own position of power and the police and army to carry out his own will and to target any potential opponents you should feel uneasy.

the trial would have just stated the obvious.You cant get back the 41 years of oppression and dictatorship.The visuals we saw just made the inevitable look dramatic and tragic but ultimately he could have gone down in any one of the air strikes or rebel shootouts.

Zuma just sad that Gaddaffi's own people killed him. He would have much more preffered it if it was one of NATO's bomb that killed Gaddafi.
Then Zuma and the ANCYL could have spew more propaganda filth regarding the evil emperialist west while at the same time asking for bigger handouts.

Zuma should reflect on the fact that he was sodomised before he was executed & then ask himself how's that sphincter feeling now?
Calling for him to have been brought before the law when you showed us how easy it was for the politically connected to dodge 700+ corruption charges.
Please.

Yeah, strange how Zim-style farm invasions starting in his own country doesn't make him feel uneasy, but the execution of a tyrant far away does.

Whatever you might say about whether it was right or not, Gaddafi dying the way he did should be a far more serious warning to those who'd follow in his footsteps rather than a civilised trial. They'd like it to be that easy.
