  • Description

    INDEPENDENCE - THAT IS THE NEXT AIM OF DR. KENNETH KAUNDA, FIRST PRIME MINISTER OF MINERAL-RICH NORTHERN RHODESIA. HE WAS BORN IN AS PRIME MINISTER ON WEDNESDAY AFTER HIS PARTY HAD ESTABLISHED A COMFORTABLE MAJORITY IN THIS WEEK'S ELECTIONS.

    HOWEVER, SEVERAL SUPPORTERS OF THE RIVAL AFRICAN NATIONAL CONGRESS SAID THE POLL WAS "CROOKED". THEY STAGED A SMALL DEMONSTRATION OUTSIDE THE CONGRESS HEADQUARTERS IN LUSAKA, BUT POLICE BROKE IT UP WITH TEARGAS AND LATER PATROLLED THE AREA.

    MEANWHILE, DR. KAUNDA WAS AT GOVERNMENT HOUSE FOR THE SWEARING--IN CEREMONY BY THE GOVERNOR, SIR EVELYN HONE. INTERNAL SELF-GOVERNMENT COMES AFTER 73 YEARS OF ABSOLUTE BRITISH RULE.

    HE SAID HE HAD BEEN "HURT" AT THE REJECTION BY WHITE VOTERS OF HIS UNITED NATIONAL INDEPENDENCE PARTY CANDIDATES. HE SAID HE INTENDED ABOLISHING THE SPECIAL ELECTORAL ROLL WHICH VIRTUALLY GUARANTEED 10 SEATS GOING TO WHITE CANDIDATES.
