  • Description

    HEADS OF STATE OF THREE EAST AFRICAN MAINLAND TERRITORIES, PLUS ZANZIBAR GOVERNMENT REPRESENTATIVES, BEGAN TALKS YESTERDAY (FRIDAY) IN THE NAIROBI. THE MEETING IS EXPECTED TO REACH A DECISION ON THE CONCEPT OF THE FORMATION OF AN EAST AFRICAN FEDERATION TO WHICH THE LEADERS OF KENYA, UGANDA AND TANGANYIKA LAST YEAR COMMITTED THEMSELVES. A WORKING PARTY WHICH WAS APPOINTED TO SETTLE THE DETAILS FAILED TO REACH AGREEMENT AND SINCE THEN FEDERATION PROSPECTS HAVE RECEDED.

    THE PRESENT MEETING IS REGARDED AS THE LAST HOPE FOR THE CREATION OF A FEDERATION. PRESIDENT NYERERE OF TANGANYIKA HAS ALREADY SPOKEN OF STRONG PRESSURES FOR TANGANYIKA TO GO ITS OWN WAY ECONOMICALLY AND THE ZANZIBAR GOVERNMENT WILL NOT COMMIT ITSELF. THE UGANDA GOVERNMENT HAS BEEN LESS THAT ENTHUSIASTIC AND MUCH OF THE INITIATIVE HAS BEEN LEFT TO KENYA.
