  • Description

    In South Africa, Chief Gatsha Buthelezi, leader of the predominantly Zulu Inkatha Organisation has launched his election campaign for the forthcoming Kwazulu elections with giant rally at Kwa Mashu outside Durban. He repeated his call for the black community to reject the policy of separate black homelands.

    SYNOPSIS: Hundreds of supporters turned out to dance or simply cheer at the rally where Chief Buthelezi was to canvass support for the forthcoming elections. The Chief, who has become one of the black community's most vocal critics of apartheid, has been urging all black tribes and movements in South Africa to unite in fighting apartheid.

    The renewed call from the Chief comes soon after South Africa's new Minister for Bantu Affairs, Mr Connie Mulder, said that, in time there should be no blacks living outside the independent homeland areas. Chief Buthelezi has said that if the Inkatha Party scores significant successes in the election, it would signify the black majority's total rejection of apartheid. He advocates rejection by black groups of the idea of separate homelands. He has refused independence for the Kwazulu homeland and said it is treachery for blacks to accept independence from the white-ruled republic.

    Opposing separate homelands is rejecting the idea blacks are foreigners in any part of South Africa, he says.
