  • Description

    Botswana's President Sir Seretse Khama said in Nairobi on Friday (2 April) that his country would suffer more than Rhodesia if it closed its borders with the rebel British colony.

    Sir Seretse was answering journalists' questions at Nairobi's Embakassi Airport during a stop-over on his way to India for a State visit. He said Botswana would end up cutting itself off instead of cutting off the Rhodesians, and pointed out that there was a direct rail link to South Africa as well as the one running through Botswana.

    Sir Seretse is one of the four African Presidents who have been involved in a joint effort to solve the Rhodesian constitutional crisis since 1973. The others are the Presidents of Zambia, Tanzania and Mozambique.

    SYNOPSIS: Botswana's President Sir Seretse Khama spoke about the current Rhodesian crisis in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi, on Friday.

    Sir Seretse was passing through on his way to India.
