  • Description

    At the United nations General Assembly on Thursday (25 September) Kenya's Foreign Minister, Munyua Waiyaki, called on South Africa to talk with its own black liberation movements before organising talks with black governments in the north.

    He said talks with the northern governments would harm the struggle of the African people for self-determination and would stamp the seal of recognition and respectability on South Africa's racist regime. Kenya would not co-operate with South Africa's plans unless it first engaged in meaningful dialogue with the African National Congress, he said.

    He said that as things stand Africans had no alternative but to continue their armed struggle for freedom. He recommended that the United Nations should be more actively involved in ensuring that effective transfer of power should be made to Africans.

    He also pledged his country's material and financial assistance to the fight against colonialism and 'racist subjugation' anywhere in Africa.

    On South Africa's involvement in Namibia in recent months Mr. Waiyaki said the situation was a harsh reminder of the nature of South Africa's colonial rule. South Africa continued to disregard the U.N. over the issue but nothing had been done to hurt its position in Namibia, (South West Africa)
