What Qadaffi understood was embracing the African revolution was kissing Arab Privilege goodbye. Instead of going to Cuba, Venezuela or Zimbabwe to live in exile, which may have preserved his life, he stayed to defend Libya and Africa. Mother Africa will be better off because the way he died left Africans everywhere grappling with a very crucial question.
