The Transitional National Council has won the war but has a lot on its sleeve to win the peace.

The editorial board of War Against Corruption in Africa, a website devoted to fighting corruption in Africa through intellectual discourse, gives its reaction to the happenings in Libya and the palpable apprehension about what becomes of the country after the death of Gaddafi.

War Against Corruption in Africa is inclined to issue this statement in view of the socio-economic and political challenges in Libya following the uprising there. The Editorial Board's concern is "the palpable apprehension about what becomes of Libya; what the National Transitional Council who have taken over from Gaddafi are up to; and if they will be able to pull the country together; as well as how they intend to go about the reconstruction and rehabilitation process in the North African nation."

"Another fundamental issue is how the transitional government intends to disarm an average Libyan in possession of arms. And more importantly is the question of if the pedigree of the rebel leaders is anything credible that a better replacement of Gaddafi in Libya and of a restoration of political stability and of offering a better deal for the Libyan people can be ascertained."

According to War Against Corruption CEO, Winston Doherty, "the wave of discordant tunes emanating from the rank of the Transitional National Council does not give the expected ray of hope. In fact, the Transitional National Council must shun all Gaddafi's idiosyncrasies and maintain a clean break with the past for them to be taken seriously, which his extrajudicial death did not seem to indicate.

"The emerging political schism and the consequent possibility of the North African nation degenerating into another Afghanistan, Iraq or Ivory Coast makes it imperative for the new leadership to put their acts together, reconcile their differences and forge a new direction for their nation."

“The Transitional National Council has won the war but has a lot on its sleeve to win the peace,” Mr. Doherty asserted.
