  • Description

    President Julius Nyerere, of Tanzania, on Saturday (August 31) appealed to African Heads of State to make an increased effort to liberate the continent from foreign domination.

    The Tanzanian leader was speaking at the opening of the ninth session of the Central and East African Heads of State conference in Brazzaville, capital of The People's Republic of the Congo.

    He welcomed the forthcoming independence of Guinea-Bissau and hoped the remaining Portuguese territories would soon follow the same path.

    The conference host, President Marien Ngouabi, of the Congo, was elected president of the conference succeeding President Nyerere.

    President Ngouabi told the conference a new stage in the liberation of colonial territories should centre on southern Africa, particularly Rhodesia and Namibia (South-West Africa).

    On the second day of the conference, the delegates, who included 10 Heads of State, were reported to have discussed the formation of a permanent body to implement summit decisions.
