  • Description

    AT THE CLOSING SESSION OF THE ORGANISATION OF AFRICAN UNITY CONFERENCE IN CAIRO YESTERDAY (TUESDAY), LEADERS OF 33 AFRICAN STATES PASSED A RESOLUTION PUTTING INTO EFFECT THE TOTAL BOYCOTT OF SOUTH AFRICA AND THE PORTUGUESE TERRITORIES OF MOZAMBIQUE AND ANGOLA.

    THEY HAVE AGREED TO REFUSE OVER-FLYING RIGHTS AND PORT FACILITIES TO ANY SHIP OR AIRCRAFT GOING TO OR FROM SOUTH AFRICA. A SPECIAL BUREAU IS TO BE SET UP AT THE O.A.U. HEADQUARTERS IN ADDIS TECH TO CO-ORDINATE THE BOYCOTT.

    THIS RESOLUTION TAKES THE BOYCOTT MUCH FURTHER THAN THE RESOLUTION PASSED LAST YEAR, WHICH MERELY CALLED ON MEMBER STATES TO BOYCOTT SOUTH AFRICAN GOODS AND PLANES.

    AT THE FINAL SESSION IN THE ARAB LEAGUE BUILDING, PRESIDENT NASSER, THE HOST, THANKED DELEGATES FOR COMING; WHILE ON BEHALF OF THE VARIOUS DELEGATIONS, DR. BANDA, PRIME MINISTER OF MALAWI THANKED PRESIDENT NASSER FOR HIS COUNTRY'S HOSPITALITY. FINALLY THE PROTOCOL BOOK WAS PASSED ROUND FOR THE VARIOUS HEADS OF STATE TO SIGN.
