    "A CLEAR CUT DECISION" ON MOVES TO BE TAKEN BY AFRICAN COUNTRIES IF THE RHODESIAN GOVERNMENT SHOULD MAKE A UNILATERAL DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE WAS DEMANDED IN DAR-ES-SALAAM YESTERDAY (THURSDAY). MR OSCAR KAMBONA, TANZANIA'S MINISTER OF EXTERNAL AFFAIRS, ASKED FOR THE DECISION FROM AN EXTRAORDINARY SESSION OF THE ORGANISATION OF AFRICAN UNITY CALLED TO DISCUSS THE RHODESIAN SITUATION.

    THE MEETING HAD BEEN CALLED TO DEBATE THE POSSIBILITY OF A UNILATERAL DECLARATION BEING MADE BY THE RHODESIAN GOVERNMENT FOLLOWING TODAY'S ELECTION, SHOULD THIS DECLARATION BE MADE. ORGANISATION MEMBERS WERE ASKED TO OPERATE A "MASTER PLAN" PUT BEFORE THEM AT THE MEETING.
