  • Description

    A call was made at the United Nations on Friday (23 May) for the international community to exert pressure on minority (while) regimes to transfer power to the indigenous majorities.

    The President of the United Nations Council for Namibia, Mr. Rupiah Banda, from Zambia, made the call at a speech in an African Liberation Day meeting.

    Mr. Banda said nothing short of handing over power to the Africans could be acceptable.

    He added that the end of the long road to total freedom for people in Zimbabwe (Rhodesia), Namibia (South West Africa) and South Africa has been brought " measurably nearer" by the "stalwart" struggle of liberation movements.

    Chairman of the Committee on Apartheid, Edwin Ogebe Ogbu, a Nigerian, also addressed U.N. delegates on Friday. He paid tribute to the Africans who had died in the struggle for freedom.

    Mr. Ogbu thanked governments, organisations and individuals for showing solidarity with the "oppressed people of Africa".
