  • Description

    DELEGATES TO THE LABOUR CONFERENCE OF THE ORGANISATION FOR AFRICAN UNITY ARE IN NAIROBI, KENYA, FOR A MEETING. THE MEETING IS BEING HELD IN THE CITY HALL. ON THEIR ARRIVAL ON TUESDAY THE DELEGATES WERE GREETED BY A SPEECH, READ ON BEHALF ON MR. JOMO KENYATTA, THE PRESIDENT OF KENYA.

    MR. KENYATTA SAID AT THE OPENING OF THE FOUR-DAY CONFERENCE THAT KENYA WAS NOT ALONE IN FEELING THAT OAU HAS NOT YET ATTAINED THE STRENGTH IT SHOULD POSSESS.

    "WE SHOULD DEVOTE ALL OUR ENERGIES TO BUILDING IT UP INTO AN EFFECTIVE ORGANISATION WITHIN WHICH AFRICAN PROBLEMS SHOULD BE SOLVED BY AFRICANS THEMSELVES," THE DELEGATES WERE TOLD. AFRICA'S SALVATION LAY IN UNITY -- BUT AFRICANS HAD TO BE PATIENT.

    "WE ALL RECOGNISE THAT CONTINENTAL UNITY FOR AFRICA IS STILL OUR IDEAL, BUT NOT YET A REALITY. BUT WE CAN SHOW BY COOPERATING AND CONSULTING TOGETHER THAT IT IS OUR FIRM, UNSHAKEABLE RESOLVE TO ATTAIN THAT UNITY", MR. KENYATTA SAID.

    THE TIME WAS OVERDUE FOR RECOGNITION OF AFRICA AS AN EQUAL PARTNER IN THE INTERNATIONAL LABOUR ORGANISATION AND HE HOPE MINISTERS AT THE CONFERENCE WOULD REACH FULL AGREEMENT TO ACT IN PAN AFRICAN UNITY AT THE INTERNATIONAL LABOUR CONFERENCE IN GENEVA NEXT MONTH.
