  • Description

    A South West African Executive Councillor, Mr. Dirk Mudge, has said the constitutional problem with South Africa, which now rules the territory "illegally", can be solved peacefully and he'd "prove it very soon".

    Mr. Mudge said in an interview on Friday (30 May) in Windhoek that it was not necessary to use force. And he discredited what he called "people from the outside" for indoctrinating and influencing the people to fight for freedom.

    He also claimed that they had been doing away with racial discrimination gradually.

    Mr. Mudge is one of the two SWA Executive Councillors appointed to negotiate with the leaders of all national groups in the territory on the proposed round-table conference on the territory's future.

    He has said he was confident that such a conference would be held sooner than expected, even if the Damaras -- the second biggest tribal community -- had asked for international supervision at the talks.
