Kenya's Foreign Minister accused South Africa on Tuesday (4 October) of maiming and killing children, and he warned white South Africans that their blood could also be shed.
MV: Kenyan Foreign Minister Munyua Waiyaki addressing United Nations.
WAIYAKI: "My delegation pledges whole and unswerving support for the declaration and programmes of action of Mobuto and Lagos, and calls for their implementation without delay. In complete disregard of the opinion of the international community, the racist regime in South Africa continues to intensify the application of diabolical and inhuman policies of apartheid with greater determination. The indignation of the world community over the barbarous murders of innocent children in Soweto last year did nothing to jolt the conscience of the racists in South Africa. Instead, the racist regime continues to maim and kill innocent children whose only crime is to demand their inalienable right to dignity and equality. The barbarity of the regime has been exposed further by the murder of peaceful and young Stephen Biko. So it's obvious they have no intention to relent. We have pointed out on numerous occasions that the tree of freedom is watered with blood, and Vorster is determined to see it flow.
So let Vorster and his clique know that no amount of murder or intimidation will reverse the hand of the clock of freedom in Azania. Africans have avoided blood thus far, but let White South Africans reflect, they can only continue with their acts as their grievous peril. Their blood can also be shed too."
