    Mr. Sam Nujoma, President of the South West Africa People's Organisation (SWAPO), held a press?

  • Description

    Mr. Sam Nujoma, President of the South West Africa People's Organisation (SWAPO), held a press conference in Algiers on Thursday (26th November) during a visit to Algeria, and condemned the suggestion of some African leaders for a better dialogue with South Africa.

    Referring to a recent speech by President Houphouet-Boign of the Ivory coast, Mr. Nujoma said that "any dialogue which is not based on the principle of the recognition of independence for an oppressed people, is a surrender to the enemy". He added that a country which failed to take its responsibilities towards liberation struggles in Africa, could not pretend to act as spokesman for struggling peoples. Mr. Nujoma indicated that any such country should rather keep quiet in its surrender to the "imperialists".

    Mr. Nujoma, who was accompanied by other officials of SWAPO, paid tribute to President Boumedienne, the Algerian Government, and the "heroic people of Algeria" for the generous moral and material assistance which they had rendered his liberation movement and people.
