    DURING HIS WELCOMING SPEECH, MR. OSCAR KAMBONA RECALLED THAT THE FIRST CONFERENCE OF ORGANISATIONS FIGHTING AGAINST PORTUGUESE 'COLONIALISM' IN AFRICA MET AT CASABLANCA IN 1961. HE WENT ON: "MUCH PROGRESS HAS BEEN REALISED IN THESE INTERVENING THREE YEARS, AND IT IS A MEASURE OF THE PROGRESS YOU HAVE ACHIEVED IN THE STRUGGLE, THAT YOU ARE MEETING IN TERRITORY NEARER THE SEAT OF THE PORTUGUESE COLONIAL AUTHORITIES. I AM CONFIDENT THAT IN ANOTHER THREE YEARS YOU WILL BE MEETING IN A LIBERATED FORMER PORTUGUESE COLONY".
