Gaddafi 'seen in Zimbabwe on Mugabe's private jet' as Libya rebels march on dictator's home town
Daily Mail ^ | 2:30 PM on 27th August 2011 | DAMIEN GAYLE

Colonel Muammar Gaddafi has fled Libya to Zimbabwe on a jet provided by Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe, it was claimed today, as rebels began the march on his home town.

President Mugabe's political opponents claim their spies saw Gaddafi arrive in the country on a Zimbabwe Air Force jet in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

They say the Libyan dictator was taken to a mansion in Harare's Gunninghill suburb, where agents from his all-female bodyguard were apparently seen patrolling the grounds.

'There's no doubt that Gaddafi is here as a 'unique guest' of Mugabe,' a spokesman for Zimbabwe's opposition Movement for Democratic Change told the Sun. If he has left Libya, Gaddafi could have fled from an airbase in his home town of Sirte, which has been bombarded by Nato warplanes in recent days.

I’m sure there’s a mobile phone app to keep track of him.

Thanks Pan_Yan.

I wonder if Mugabe knows about Ghaddafi telling the UN that he's the guard at the gate that keeps the “black tide” from overtaking eastern Europe. Maybe Ghaddafi told Mugabe he was only kidding, LOL.

From what we know they only ever had one in custody, Mohamed, and he got away 24 hours later. The rebels were holding him in house arrest so he either had a secret escape route out of the house (very plausible), the guards were bribed (very plausible) or his brother Said came and got him in his armored convoy (plausible).

LOL, just saying you cannot believe much of what come out of that place. Yesterday the big news was rotting bodies found and who killed them. Not one word about the fact it was probably NATO, they had to do something with the bodies out of all those flying tanks and trucks and buildings.

My brother just got back from hunting in Zimbabwe. It is truly a third world country and is about 99% black.

WEll, it's like this. Ghaddafi said this in reference to the fact that if NATO/US were allowed to continue it's unlawful war against Libya, the blacks that Ghaddaffi kept safe in his country, but who would be slaughtered by the black hating rebels, largely ruled by al Queda, would start fleeing to Europe for safety.

Puts a different light on it, eh wot?

Abdelbaset Ali al-Megrahi, the Lockerbie bomber, is with Qaddafi and probably some of the kids. They could not have flown out of Sirte, more likely they made it to Sabha in the S Sahara and flew from there with the gold.
