  • Description

    President Julius Nyerere of Tanzania arrived in Brazzaville, The People's Republic of the Congo, on Monday (26 August) for the summit of Heads of State from East and Central African countries. President Nyerere is chairman of the unofficial 16-nation group which meets annually to discuss common problems and regional cooperation.

    He planed to spend five days in Brazzaville before the Heads of State meeting which begins on Saturday (31 August).

    Foreign Ministers of the member countries were meeting as President Nyerere arrived, to formulate the agenda for the Heads of State meeting. At the opening of the preparatory session, the President of the Congo, Marien Ngouabi, called on the Foreign Ministers to adopt "realistic resolutions" so that Africa could move on to action.

    Thirteen Heads of State are expected to attend the summit. Only Presidents Jomo Kenyatta of Kenya, Kamuzu Banda of Malawi, and Emperor Haile Selassie of Ethiopia have indicated they'll be unable to attend.

    Leaders of a number of African nationalist organisations will also be at the summit, which will concentrate on discussing the future decolonisation of the continent.

    The Heads of State Conference will continue until 2 September.
