  • Description

    The South African cabinet was due to meet in Pretoria on Tuesday (19 September) for a crucial session. The Cabinet was expected to hear from the Prime Minister John Vorster whether he was standing down from the leadership on health grounds. It was also scheduled to formulate an answer to United Nations proposals for Namibia (South West Africa). The leader of the South West Africa People's Organisation, Mr Sam Nujoma, has written to the United Nations Secretary General, Dr. Kurt Waldheim, accepting proposals for a UN supervised transition to independence, but calling for a larger police contingent and a new voter registration scheme - two demands which South Africa opposes. On Sunday (17 September) the South African Foreign Minister Pik Botha was interviewed by Cliff Saunders about South Africa's reaction to the SWAPO moves.
