  • Description

    IN NORTHERN RHODESIA - WHICH BECOMES ZAMBIA ON INDEPENDENCE NEST MONTH - THE UNITED NATIONAL INDEPENDENCE PARTY ENDED ITS ANNUAL TWO-DAY CONFERENCE YESTERDAY (SEPTEMBER 13) AT MULUNGUSHI.

    THE CONFERENCE ENDED WITH A SPEECH BY DR. KAUNDA, THE PARTY'S PRESIDENT AND PRIME MINISTER OF NORTHERN RHODESIA.

    IN HIS SPEECH DR. KAUNDA EMPHASISED THAT, IN ITS INTERNATIONAL POLICY, THE REPUBLIC OF ZAMBIA WOULD BE POLITICALLY NON-ALIGNED, AND ADDED: "I DO NOT PERSONALLY BELIEVE IN ANY OTHER 'ISM' APART FROM ZAMBIANISM."
    DEFINING HIS INTERPRETATION OF NON-ALIGNMENT, DR. KAUNDA SAID: "OUR UNDERSTANDING OF THIS NON-ALIGNED POLICY DOES NOT MEAN, AS SOME PEOPLE WOULD HAVE US BELIEVE, THE EXPLOITATION OF THE WEST TO OUR OWN ECONOMIC ADVANTAGE. THIS SIMPLY MEANS WE DO NOT TIE OURSELVES TO ANY NATION'S CHARIOT OR ANY BLOCKS CHARIOT."
    DR. KAUNDA SAID THAT MORE IMPORTANT THAN NATIONAL UNITY OR AFRICAN UNITY, OR ANY OTHER UNITY, WAS THE UNITY OF MANKIND.

    HE SAID: "I HOLD THE VIEW THAT YOU DO NOT LOVE MAN SINCERELY IF YOU DECLARE YOU LOVE YOUR PEOPLE BUT HAT RUSSIANS OR AMERICANS, CHINESE OF FRENCH - FOR MAN IS THE SAME AND INDIVISIBLE THE WORLD OVER."
    THE PRIME MINISTER TOLD THE BIG CROWD OF DELEGATES AND VISITORS AT THE CONFERENCE THAT HE HAD RECENTLY DECLINED REQUESTS OF THE PEOPLE TO BECOME LIFE PRESIDENT OF THE INDEPENDENCE PARTY BECAUSE HE WAS NOT INFALLIBLE.

    DR. KAUNDA SAID: "I MIGHT FIND MYSELF SPENDING MORE TIME DEFENDING AND SAFEGUARDING MY POSITION AS LIFE PRESIDENT OF THE PARTY THAN ON MAKING EFFORTS TO SERVER MY COUNTRY AND PEOPLE."
