Gaddafi death creates 'uneasy feeling'
Cape Town - 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.
