  • Description

    The Presidents of the member states of OCAMM (Organisation Commune Africaine, Malgache at Mauricienne) met in a summit conference at Fort Lamy, Chad, on the 28th and 29th January. Originally the conference was to have been held earlier but it was postponed until 28th January to coincide with the 11th anniversary of Chad's independence.

    In his opening address, President Francois Tombalbaye, re-elected President of OCAMM for another term, said that Chadians believed in cooperation and solidarity and he hoped that other African states would soon join OCAMM.

    M. Falilou Kane, Secretary General of OCAMM, in his closing session speech, deplored the increasing interference by European leaders in the internal affairs of African states. He protested against the denigration of African states by European politicians.

    In his closing speech, President Tombalbaye called upon member states to form an effective African common market.
