  • Description

    KENYA'S VICE-PRESIDENT, MR. OGINGA ODINGA, CALLED A NEWS CONFERENCE IN NAIROBI YESTERDAY (TUESDAY) AT WHICH HE ATTACKED THE "COLONIAL MENTALITY" OF THE WESTERN POWERS.

    MR. OGINGA ODINGA WAS COMMENTING ON A REPORT IN THE "EAST AFRICAN STANDARD" WHICH SAID THAT A DETAILED SURVEY OF COMMUNIST PENETRATION IN AFRICA BY MR. STEWART, BRITAIN'S FOREIGN SECRETARY, HAD GIVEN A "NASTY JOLT" TO A MEETING OF THE WESTERN EUROPEAN UNION IN ROME.

    IN COLONIAL TIMES, MR. ODINGA SAID, THE IMPERIALIST POWERS ENJOYED UNRESTRICTED OPPORTUNITIES FOR FIGHTING THEIR IDEOLOGICAL INTERESTS ON AFRICAN SOIL. THEY STILL APPEARED TO RETAIN THAT COLONIAL MENTALITY, HE SAID, AND CONTINUED TO ASSUME THAT THEIR ACTIVITIES COULD NOT BE CHECKED.

    AFRICA WAS NOT BLIND TO THE CAREFULLY PLANNED NEO-COLONIALIST MANOEUVRES OPERATING UNDERGROUND, MR. ODINGA CONTINUED. THE WEST WAS TRYING TO DUPE THE WORLD BY PRETENDING THAT IT WAS CONCERNED WITH COMMUNIST ACTIVITIES IN AFRICA, BUT IN REALITY IT WAS DETERMINED TO MAINTAIN THE SELFISH CAPITALIST SYSTEM, HE ADDED.

    HE SAID AFRICA WAS CONCERNED WITH THE WESTERN ARROGANT COLONIAL ATTITUDE. IT WAS AN INSULT TO AFRICA'S FRIENDLY FEELINGS TO THE WORLD. "WESTERN EUROPE MUST BE TOLD IN VERY CLEAR TERMS THAT THEIR ATTEMPT TO PERPETUATE THEIR IMPERIALIST SABOTAGE IN AFRICA WILL MEET WITH AN EVEN NASTIER JOLT FROM THE AFRICAN COUNTRIES. FOREIGN COUNTRIES HAVE NO RIGHT WHATEVER TO DECLARE THEIR DETERMINATION TO MAKE AFRICA THE BATTLEGROUND FOR THEIR IDEOLOGICAL DIFFERENCES," MR. ODINGA SAID.
