Be merciful to your black compatriots – Rawlings urges Libyans

Former President Jerry John Rawlings has urged the Government and citizens of Libya to treat Black African migrants humanely, saying, “We are all creations of the one Allah but disfigured by the shameless greed and corruption of man.”

Commenting on the reported atrocities being meted out to Black African migrants in Libya, Former President Rawlings stated, “How sad that events should turn out this way and the black man is being subjected to this kind of treatment in Libya of all places.

“And I say so with emphasis because whatever faults Gaddafi had, blacks were treated as equals in Libya than in most Arab countries.”

Former President Rawlings said while those frightening experiences may serve as a deterrent to the use of Libya as a gateway to Europe, ‘we must still add our voices to the call to our Libyan brothers to show a little more compassion to our vulnerable black African brothers and sisters.’
