MWALE: " The United Nations must call for an immediate end to all collaboration with South Africa in the nuclear field. We urge all the western countries which supply nuclear materials to South Africa to publicly renounce this treacherous state. In this respect we once again implore the international community to seriously implement the recent arms embargo imposed against South Africa by the United Nations Security Council. If the racist regimes in Southern Africa were not armed to the present levels the current conflict in the region would not have reached its present alarming proportions. The international community would have greatly contributed to the ideals of disarmament and the relaxation of international sanctions if it were to halt the supply of more arms to racist South Africa, a country which has amassed the largest arsenal of weapons on the African continent for repressive and aggressive purposes."
