  • Description

    THE BISHOP OF MASAI, THE RIGHT REVEREND TREVOR HUDDLESTON, LED MORE THAN FIVE-HUNDRED PEOPLE IN A MEMORIAL SERVICE TO THE LATE CHIEF ALBERT LUTULI IN DAR-ES-SALAAM YESTERDAY (SUNDAY).

    THE SERVICE, AT THE ARNAUTOGLU HALL, WAS ATTENDED BY AFRICAN LEADERS, POLITICIANS, DIPLOMATS AND ACADEMICS. CHIEF LUTULI, A SCHOLAR, WINNER OF THE NOBEL PEACE PRIZE, AND LIFE-LONG OPPONENT OF RACIAL SEGREGATION, WAS KILLED WHEN STRUCK BY A TRAIN ON A BRIDGE IN NATAL PROVINCE ON JULY 21.

    IN HIS ADDRESS DURING THE SERVICE, BISHOP HUDDLESTON SAID CHIEF LUTULI WAS AN IDEALIST WITHOUT ILLUSIONS.

    BISHOP HUDDLESTON, HIMSELF AN OUTSPOKEN CRITIC OF RACIAL SEGREGATION, SAID CHIEF LUTULI HAD DEMONSTRATED THE COSTLINESS OF ACHIEVING TRUE PEACE. LUTULI, SAID BISHOP HUDDLESTON, BELIEVED PASSIONATELY THAT INTER-RACIAL STRIFE WAS EVIL, DESTRUCTIVE AND TOTALLY WASTEFUL.

    (CHIEF LUTULI, WHO WAS 69, WAS BURIED IN GROUTVILLE, NATAL YESTERDAY. FIVE-THOUSAND PEOPLE, EUROPEANS AND AFRICANS ATTENDED THE FUNERAL. APARTHEID LAWS WERE RELAXED FOR THE CEREMONY SO WHITE AND COLOURED MOURNERS COULD MIX).
