  • Description

    THE ORGANISATION OF AFRICAN UNITY'S LIBERATION COMMITTEE IS MEETING IN DAR-ES-SALAAM TO REVIEW THE WORK BY FREEDOM MOVEMENTS IN THE CONTINENT.

    IT IS THE FOURTEENTH REGULAR SESSION OF THE COMMITTEE. IN HIS FAREWELL SPEECH, COMMANDANT HOFFMAN SHARPLY CRITICISED AFRICAN STATES WHO WITHHELD MORAL AND FINANCIAL SUPPORT FOR THE FREEDOM MOVEMENTS. ONE OF THE TASKS OF THE MEETING, HE ADDED, WOULD BE TO BRING THESE COUNTRIES TO BOOK. HE DID NOT NAME THE COUNTRIES CONCERNED.

    THE MEETING, WHICH IS SCHEDULED TO LAST FIVE DAYS, IS BEING ATTENDED BY DELEGATIONS, OBSERVERS AND DIPLOMATS FROM ALGERIA, CONGO-KINSHASA, ETHIOPIA, GUINEA, SENEGAL, SOMALIA, TANZANIA, UGANDA, UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC, ZAMBIA, LIBERIA, MAURITANIA AND MOROCCO.

    DR. MHANDO SAID FREEDOM FIGHTERS COULD NOT BE EXPECTED TO LIVE OR FIGHT ON RESOLUTIONS. "IF EVERY AFRICAN STATE HAD CONTRIBUTED THE BAREST MINIMUM REQUIRED OF IT TO THE SPECIAL FUND," HE SAID, "THE PICTURE NOW WOULD BE DIFFERENT."
