  • Description

    The Fourth African Summit opened in Kinshasa yesterday (Monday) with urgent calls for an end to inter-African disputes. The conference was formally opened by Emperor Haile Selassie of Ethiopia, who then vacated the president's chair in favour of President Mobutu, who has taken over leadership of the Organisation of African Unity - OAU.

    The conference is being attended by sixteen Chiefs of State, two heads of government and 19 senior representatives.

    The meeting, being held in the Congolese Parliament will continue for four days. The only country of the OAU not represented is Malawi, which is boycotting the meeting.

    During his opening address, President Mobutu spoke of attempts from organisations outside the OAU to disrupt the work of the organisation, and create divisions between African nations. However these outside forces were unsuccessful in hampering the progress of Africa.
