‘The West killed Gaddafi so they must deal with immigrants’ – Zuma

South Africa’s President Jacob Zuma has lambasted NATO for undermining security in Africa and triggering the current migrant crisis that now faces Europe.

South Africa’s President Jacob Zuma has lain the blame for the current surge of refugees crossing the Mediterranean Sea into Europe at the feet of the Europeans themselves, reported Eyewitness News.

He says the migrant crisis was triggered by the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (Nato) forces, attacking Libya after the Arab Spring, leading to the assassination of Muammar Gaddafi in 2011.


“…actions taken in the bombarding of Libya and killing of its leader that opened the floodgates … today those who were part of destabilising that part of the world, they do not want to accept the refugees. It is their responsibility. They caused it, they must address it.” said Zuma.

“And today those who are part of destabilising that part of the world they won’t want to accept the refugees. It’s their responsibility, they caused it, they must address it.”

Zuma did not, however, mention that South Africa voted in favour of Resolution 1973 which authorised military intervention in Libya.

  1. The article writer casually mentions that SA voted in 1973 for a Lybian invasion, but omited to mention that SA was then under appartite and controlled by a white government decended from Europe. However Zuma is correct.

  2. He’s a hypocrite! SA was on the UN Security Council as a non permanent member at the time of the UNSC Resolution 1973 and they agreed to the No-Fly zone. Anyone with half a brain knew that the purpose of the No Fly Zone was to aid in the overthrow of the Libyan Government, A simple vote “No’ By SA would have stopped the No Fly Zone and the eventual overthrow of Libya. The responsibility is just as much his as it is NATO
