  • Description

    The same forces that disposed of Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler could dislodge Rhodesian Prime Minister, Ian Smith, according to the Zambian President, Dr. Kenneth Kaunda. Dr. Kaunda expressed this view to a panel of journalists on Zambian television on Sunday (10 December), two days before the national elections in which he is seeking his fourth term in office. Dr. Kaunda said he found it hard to believe that the collective might of the major Western nations would be unable to get rid of Mr. Smith.

    Clip is from a Meet the Press style programme broadcast by Zambia Television. (ZAMBIA BROADCASTING SERVICES is correct title) on Sunday/10.

    President was invited to discuss with local journalists the way he sees things at home and abroad during the next five years - this obviously in view of today's election in which he the only candidate. (ZBS is government-run).

    Clips taken concern 1. wishy-washy bit about his priority at home -people understand what their lives are about. 2. better bit about the end of the Smith regime (says incredible that west could not oust him if wanted to - they got rid of Hitler....).

    SYNOPSIS: The panel began by asking Dr. Kaunda his priorities in the next five years for the country he has led since 1964.
