  • Description

    EMPEROR HAILE SELASSIE WENT UNDERGROUND YESTERDAY (FRIDAY) TO INSPECT A COPPER MINE. THE ETHIOPIAN RULER IS ON A FOUR-DAY STATE VISIT TO ZAMBIA AS THE GUEST OF PRESIDENT KENNETH KAUNDA. HE SPENT A DAY IN THE RICH COPPER-BELT TOURING THE MINE AND ITS INSTALLATIONS.

    EMPEROR SELASSIE HAD FLOWN 200 MILES (320 KMS) NORTH FROM THE CAPITAL, LUSAKA. WITH DR. KAUNDA, HE WENT 540 FEET (164.5 METRES) UNDERGROUND FOR A FIRST-HAND LOOK AT THE SOURCE OF MOST OF ZAMBIA'S WEALTH.

    HE ALSO INSPECTED AN UNDERGROUND MINING SCHOOL, WHERE TRAINEE MINERS LEARN THEIR TRADE. IT WAS THE FIRST TIME THAT TWO HEADS OF STATE HAD EVER GONE BELOW GROUND IN THE COPPER-BELT.

    BEFORE GOING ON TO A CIVIC LUNCH AT KITWE, THE EMPEROR SAW THE LAST STAGE OF PRODUCTION: THE COPPER BARS. HE ENDS THE STATE VISIT ON MONDAY MORNING.
