    MR ALPHONSE MASSAMBA-DEBAT, PRESIDENT OF CONGO-BRAZZAVILLE, REPEATED HIS OBJECTIONS TO NATIONALISATION WHEN HE ADDRESSED A MAY DAY RALLY IN THE COUNTRY'S CAPITAL ON TUESDAY. THE SPEECH WAS FOLLOWED BY A PARADE OF WORKERS.

    THE PRESIDENT ASKED HIS AUDIENCE: "DO YOU KNOW THE POST NATIONALISATION?" AND, MENTIONING THE WISH OF SOME CONGOLESE LEADERS TO HAVE A NATIONAL BANK ISSUING ITS OWN CURRENCY, HE ADDED: "ONE MUST NOT SEEK FACILE SOLUTIONS WHICH COULD ONLY LEAD US INTO HAZARDS."
