    MR. CYRILLE ADOULA, THE FORMER CONGOLESE PRIME MINISTER, ARRIVED UNEXPECTEDLY WHAT HE DESCRIBED AS AN AFRICAN PLAN FOR THE CONGO.

    MR. ADOULA TOLD JOURNALISTS AT THE AIRPORT HIS STAY WOULD BE SHORT. BUT HE SAID HE WAS WILLING TO MEET THE CONGOLESE PRIME MINISTER, MR. TSHOMBE, DUE IN BRUSSELS ON TUESDAY FOR TALKS WITH THE BELGIAN FOREIGN MINISTER, M. PAUL-HENCY SPAAK.

    WRITING IN THE WEEKLY 'JEUNE AFRIQUE' YESTERDAY, MR. ADOULA SUGGESTED A TRANSITIONAL CONGOLESE GOVERNMENT TO INCLUDE MEMBERS OF THE INSURRECTION AND EXCLUDING MR. TSHOMBE. MR. ADOULA SAID: "MR. TSHOMBE HAS DELIBERATELY PLACED HIMSELF OUTSIDE THE FRAMEWORK OF NATIONAL RECONCILIATION AND BEARS RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE PRESENT SITUATION.

    "HE HAS BROUGHT SOUTH AFRICAN AND PORTUGUESE MERCENARIES INTO OUR COUNTRY AND FOLLOWED A POLICY WHICH CAUSED THOUSANDS OF VICTIMS...WE CANNOT FORGET AND STILL LESS FORGIVE THIS...TSHOMBE SOUGHT THE SUPPORT OF CUR OPPONENTS - WE MUST FIGHT HIM AS IF HE WERE VERWOERD OF A SALAZAR".

    PRIME MINISTER TSHOMBE TODAY REJECTED THE FOUR-POINT RECONCILIATION PLAN OFFERED BY MR. ADOULA.IN A NEWSPAPER INTERVIEW HE SAID NEGOTIATIONS WITH THE CONGO REBELS WERE NOT POSSIBLE. HE DENIED MR. ADOULA'S ALLEGATIONS THAT HE HAD MADE THE SITUATION WORSE.

    (MR. TSHOMBE IS GOING TO BRUSSELS TO CONFER ON HIS GOVERNMENT'S PLANS TO TAKE OVER ALL MINING CONCESSION RIGHTS NOW HELD BY BELGIAN COMPANIES. PRELIMINARY TALKS WITHOUT AGREEMENT WERE HELD LAST MONTH WHEN THE CONGOLESE LEADER VISITED THE CAPITAL. BUT MR. TSHOMBE WAS ALSO EXPECTED TO DISCUSS HIS GOVERNMENT'S ATTITUDE TO THE CONTINUING CAMPAIGN AGAINST THE INSURGENTS.)
