SA not facilitating Gaddafi exit
Johannesburg - South Africa is not facilitating Muammar Gaddafi's exit from Libya and knows that the Libyan leader will not seek asylum in South Africa after rebels entered the capital Tripoli, Foreign Minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane said on Monday.
Nkoana-Mashabane also denied at a media briefing in Johannesburg that South Africa had sent aircraft to Libya for Gaddafi's exit and said Gaddafi's current whereabouts are not known.
The only South African plane that was near Libya was in Tunisia to evacuate South Africans, Nkoana-Mashabane said.
This comes following claims that two South Africans planes were spotted at Tripoli airport on Sunday night.
The minister also said that it will not recognise a rebel government should Gaddafi’s regime fall.
