50 African states for Bingu

The rope is tightening for Lybian leader, Muammar Gadaffi, who wants to have another go at the African Union chairmanship despite union rules indicating that positioning will be on rotational basis.
But, so far, it seems things are going on well for Malawi's Bingu wa Mutharika- who has been nominated by the Southern African Development Community to take over from Gadaffi, now that it is the bloc's turn.
Foreign Affairs Minister Ettah Banda told Zachimalawi that, so far, 50 African states have assured Sadc of the AU chairmanship.
Banda said that the countries do not want a situation where unelected leaders, such as Gadaffi, would want to cling on to power and soil Africa's good governance picture.
