  • Description

    SENATOR ROBERT KENNEDY RECEIVED AN ENTHUSIASTIC WELCOME WHEN HE FLEW INTO DA-ES-SALAAM AT THE START OF A FOUR-DAY PRIVATE VISIT TO TANZANIA. LATER HE VISITED THE STATE HOUSE AND HAD A TWO-AND-HALF HOUR TALK WITH PRESIDENT NYERERE.

    ON HIS ARRIVAL, SENATOR KENNEDY TOLD A PRESS CONFERENCE THAT A BACKGROUND OF RACIAL DISCRIMINATION HAD MADE HIS SOUTH AFRICAN VISIT SAD. THERE WERE HOWEVER SIGNS OF HOPE AS SOME GROUPS OF PEOPLE FELT THERE WAS SOMETHING WRONG AND KNEW SOMETHING HAD TO BE ONE, HE SAID. SENATOR KENNEDY SPOKE OF A SPECIAL BOND OF FRIENDSHIP BETWEEN THE UNITED STATES AND TANZANIA WHICH, HE SAID, WAS PARTLY DUE TO A COMMON COMMITMENT TO WORK FOR HUMAN JUSTICE AND EQUALITY.

    PRESIDENT NYERERE, EXPLAINING HIS POLICY OF NON-ALIGNMENT TO JOURNALISTS ACCOMPANYING SENATOR KENNEDY, SAID THAT THIS POLICY WAS FREEDOM TO SUPPORT THE WEST BECAUSE IT HAD A CASE AND BACK TO THE EAST WHEN IT HAD A CASE. WHEN PEOPLE CLAIMED THAT CHINESE INFLUENCE ON AFRICA WAS GREAT, HE WOULD ASK FOR AN EXAMPLE AND BE GIVEN TANZANIA. IF TANZANIA WAS THE MAXIMUM THEN IT CANNOT BE VERY GREAT, SAID THE PRESIDENT. PRESIDENT NYERERE SAID THAT ALTHOUGH NOT MUCH AID WAS COMING FROM CHINA, PEKING HAD OFFERED MORE THAN TANZANIA COULD USE.

    TODAY (SATURDAY) SENATOR KENNEDY IS TO FLY TO THE SOUTHERN HIGHLANDS FOR A QUICK INSPECTION OF THE US PEACE CORPS AND AGENCY FOR INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS.
