    WITH KATANGA WELL ON THE WAY TO RE-INTEGRATION WITH THE CONGO REPUBLIC AND PRESIDENT TSHOMBE AWAY IN PARIS FOR EYE TREATMENT, THOUSANDS OF BALUBAS TURNED OUT IN ELISABETHVILLE LAST SUNDAY TO GIVE AN ENTHUSIASTIC WELCOME TO MR.JASON SENDWE.

    THE NORTH KATANGA BALUBA LEADER, HOLDING OFFICE ALSO AS THE CENTRAL CONGOLESE GOVERNMENT'S DEPUTY PRIME MINISTER, BECAME THE FOCUS IN ELISABETHVILLE'S MAIN SQUARE OF THE FIRST PUBLIC BALUBA CELEBRATION IN SOUTH KATANGA SINCE MR.TSHOMBE DECLARED THE PROVINCE INDEPENDENT IN JULY 1960.

    MEN AND WOMEN, THEIR FACES PAINTED WHITE AS A SIGN OF JOY, SANG AND DANCED FOR HOURS UNDER THE EYES OF UNITED NATIONS AND KATANGESE ARMY PATROLS.MR.SENDWE WAS CARRIED ALOFT BY HIS SUPPORTERS ON A WOODEN THRONE.BALUBA BANNERS IN THE CROWD ATTACKED THE PROVINCE'S RULING CONAKAT PARTY AND CALLED FOR "DEATH TO THE SECESSIONIST ASSASSINS".

    THIS OPEN PLEDGE OF SUPPORT FOR THE BALUBA LEADER, WHO HAS LONG REMAINED IN THE BACKGROUND OF THE CONGO'S POLITICAL DEVELOPMENTS, CAME FIVE WEEKS AFTER A FIRST TENTATIVE BALUBA DEMONSTRATION IN ELISABETHVILLE, WHICH PASSED ALMOST UNNOTICED.
