Last week’s attempted coup of the Libyan Ambassador to Botswana by some embassy diplomats has forced the temporary closure of the mission offices in Gaborone. It is reported that Botswana security agents were mobilised nearer to the Libyan Embassy in a bid to try and contain a volatile security situation after diplomats attempted to topple the Libyan Ambassador to Botswana Abdelmatlob Buhawia. It is alleged that the attempted coup is a result of the division in line with the political groups controlling different parts of Libya since the death of its long time leader Muammar Gadhaffi. It is reported that the Libyan diplomats are of the view that Buhawia does not represent the Libyan government.
