Top 3 African Leaders Who Were Anti Muammar Gaddafi And Cut Short His Dreams Of United States Of Africa

In 2010, when Muammar Gaddafi was stepping down as chairman of the African Union, he gave a speech. In the speech, he referenced the many African leaders that opposed his dreams of a United States of Africa. These leaders opposed Muammar Gaddafi’s dreams on the basis that Africa not too long ago emerged from colonization. These leaders also noted that they would rather maintain their individual sovereignty for decades to come. Muammar Gaddafi said, at the African Union event in 2010, “The world’s engine is turning into 7 or 10 countries and we are not aware of that. We have to get united to be united. Let’s be united today.” The following are the top 3 African leaders who vehemently opposed Muammar Gaddafi’s dreams of a United Africa:
