HE TOLD THE MEETING THAT TANZANIA HAD NO QUARREL WITH THE MALAWI PEOPLE, BUT THAT THE BORDER DISPUTE WAS ENGINEERED BY ENEMIES OF AFRICA, TO GET AFRICANS FIGHTING AFRICANS AS IN THE CONGO AND NIGERIA. "IF WE HAVE TO FIGHT, IT WILL NOT BE WITH BANDA BUT WITH HIS PAYMASTERS," MR. KAWAWA TOLD THE CROWD, "WE ARE PREPARED TO FIGHT."
