Zuma attending AU meeting on Libya
Johannesburg - President Jacob Zuma will attend an African Union Peace and Security Council meeting on Libya, the presidency said on Thursday.
Spokesperson Clayson Monyela said Zuma left for Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on Thursday for the meeting on Friday.
The council will discuss the unfolding revolution in Libya, as well as the ramifications of leader Muammar Gaddafi's possible capture.
Zuma is accompanied by State Security Minister Siyabonga Cwele.
Gaddafi's rule has been teetering on the brink of collapse after months of Nato airstrikes caused most of his forces to flee and rebel forces to take control of the capital Tripoli.
President Jacob Zuma earlier this week said that powerful nations had abused UN resolutions "to further interests other than to protect civilians and assist the Libyan people".
The future of Libya had to be determined by its people, Zuma said.
