  • Description

    President Sangoule Lamizana of Upper Volta addressed a large public meeting on April 25th at Bobo Dioulasso -- to the west of the capital, Ouagadougou -- on the aims of his recently established 'Government of National Renewal.

    On February 8, President Lamizana suspended the Constitution and dissolved the National Assembly. He explained that his action was necessary because political squabbles and rivalries had blocked solutions to the country's urgent problems -- especially the drought and rising prices.

    The President, who was accompanied by members of his new Cabinet, also opened an oil refinery in Bobo Dioulasso. It is the commercial capital of Upper Volta.
