  • Description

    In an attempt to mollify the English speaking section of the community Premier Verwoerd has appointed two English types to the Cabinet, one is Trollip who was the Administrator of Natal and was sworn in about three weeks ago, the other is Frank Waring, one time United Party politician who has changed boats and joined the Nationalist party and has now been sworn is Minister of Information by the State President Swart at his Pretoria residence. This would seem to be the beginning of a big indoctrination campaign both internal and external. This has the effect of pushing Piet Meiring, who has bossed the state information office for as many years as the Nationalists have been in power, into the background, perhaps he has not satisfied, considering the bad overseas results achieved.

    The film is of the Pta ceremony of swearing in a minister but the actual ceremony is kept private.
