During a phone interview, Sultan Kakuba, an administrative expert at Kyambogo University in Uganda, updated Anadolu Agency that “Gaddafi had a vision and strong belief of uniting Africans.”

“He believed a united Africa would speak with one voice at international fora such as the United Nations and manage to bargain and be seen as an equal partner.”

Kakuba added “Gaddafi believed this was the only way that Africa could develop without Western interference.”
