  • Description

    The head of South Africa's Kwazulu homeland, chief Gatsha Buthelezi, returned on Monday (December 17), from a visit to four independent African states.

    Chief Buthelezi visited Ethiopia, Zambia, Tanzania and Kenya, to speak on the South African Government's homelands policy.

    The Chief said he abhorred apartheid and added that the South African Government had tried to persuade him not to visit the independent states. But he said, the Government could not stop him without jeopardising the homelands policy.

    Throughout the tour, the Chief defended his stand on non-violence for the liberation of the blacks in South Africa. He said no price was too nigh for person's human dignity and rights. But he did not believe any person had the right to precipitate suicide of a whole race."
    Chief Buthelezi attended the Fourth African-American dialogue in the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa, and visited the Organization of African Unity headquarters there.

    He later visited Dar as Salaam, Lusaka and Nairobi.

    A transcript of Chief Buthelezi's statement follows. Some of his words are indistinguishable, and could not be transcribed.
