  • Description

    PRESIDENT MOISE TSHOMBE OF KATANGA MADE HIS FIRST PUBLIC APPEARANCE FOR SOME WEEKS IN ELISABETHVILLE ON SATURDAY. A CROWD OF 20,000 GAVE HIM A DELIRIOUS WELCOME.

    HE TOLD THEM: "MY VISIT TODAY WAS NECESSARY TO PROVE I'M STILL HERE; THAT I STILL THINK OF YOU AND THE WHOLE OF KATANGA; AND THAT IT IS FALSE TO SAY I KEEP AWAY FROM POLITICAL EVENTS."
    HE SAID THE CENTRAL CONGOLESE PLAN FOR A NEW PROVINCE FOR LUALABA TRIBESMEN WOULD ONLY CREATE MISERY AND POVERTY. HE SCORNED AT ANY HOPE OF ITS SUCCESS. KATANGA MUST NOT BE SPLIT UP, HE SAID. ALL KATANGESE MUST UNITE.
