South Africa denies Gaddafi's family relocated to the country

10-26-2011 21:59 BJT Special Report:Libya’s Muammar Gaddafi dies |

PRETORIA, Oct. 26 (Xinhua) -- South African Department of International Relations and Cooperation on Wednesday denied that former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi's family was heading to South Africa.

Media citing Algerian's Al-Shuruk reported that all Gaddafi's surviving relatives planned to travel to South Africa.

"It is not true," the Department of International Relations and Cooperation department's spokesman Clayson Monyela told Xinhua in a telephonic interview.

On Oct. 21, Zuma said in Pretoria that instead of being killed, Gaddafi should have been captured and tried at the International Court of Justice when he addressed a joint media briefing with visiting Equatorial Guinea president Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo.

Zuma undertook two trips to Libya in 2011, on behalf of a high- level AU ad hoc committee, to try to help find a solution in Libya.
