  • Description

    The President of the South African People's Organisation - SWAPO - has acknowledged that the organisation is receiving 'concrete', material support' from the Soviet Union. Mr. Sam Nujoma, speaking in Moscow during a visit to the Soviet Union, said the 'armed liberation struggle' in Namibia has been intensified with the support of the Soviet Union and 'other socialist countries.'
    SYNOPSIS: Mr. Nujoma, who leads SWAPO from exile in Britain, was in the Soviet capital at the invitation of the Soviet-Asian-African Solidarity Committee. His visit came shortly after a United Nations committee went to South Africa for talks on Namibia's future. South Africa intends holding an election in the territory next year, but SWAPO has refused to take part. Instead, said Mr. Nujoma it would continue its guerrilla war.
