Muammar Gaddafi: From Hero To Zero

Muammar Muhammad Abu Minyar al-Gaddafi[1] (Arabic: مُعَمَّر القَذَّافِي‎ Muʿammar al-Qaḏḏāfī (June 1942 – 20 October 2011)

The rise and fall of Muammar Gaddafi is just another classic tragedy of one of the most charismatic rulers in the history of the world since Nero Claudius Caesar Augustus Germanicus, the fifth Emperor of Rome (37 AD - 68 AD).

It is really ironic that Gaddafi who was once the hero of his people was now a villain they had to topple and kill without trial.

I don't have to write anything more than what many people have already written and reported online and offline. But I advise every literate African to read What does Gaddafi's fall mean for Africa? - Opinion - Al Jazeera English.
