    At the United Nations, two african Foreign Ministers made unequivocal statements on the present situation in southern Africa during a session of the General Assembly on Monday (2 October). Mr. Benjamin Mkapa, the Foreign Minister of Tanzania, fiercely attacked the Anglo-American proposals for a settlement in Rhodesia, and presented the conditions that his government would need to see enforced before accepting any resolution of the problem.

    SYNOPSIS: Several other issues were raised during the session, and Mr. Martin Bongo, the Foreign Minister of Gabon, commented upon the present situation in South Africa.

    Mr. Bongo emphasised he hoped wisdom would govern the attitudes of the South African government in the future. He described the present regime as "oppressive". He said it was imperative to quickly introduce principles of humanity and reason.
