    TRANSCRIPT: SEQ. 7: DR. MBURUMDA KERINA: "I HAVE ARRIVED IN FRANCISTOWN FROM THE UNITED NATIONS WHERE I HAVE WORKED FOR OUR INDEPENDENCE FOR THE PAST NINE YEARS. AND I AM NOW ON MY WAY TO SOUTH WEST AFRICA WHERE I HOPE TO JOIN OUR PEOPLE IN OUR NATIONAL STRUGGLE TO FREE OUR COUNTRY FROM SOUTH AFRICAN COLONIALISM, AND WHERE I AM NOT AFRAID TO FACE WHATEVER CONSEQUENCES THAT ARE IN OUR WAY; BE IT JAILS, OR DEPUTATIONS OR DETENTIONS BY THE SOUTH AFRICAN GOVERNMENT IN OUR COUNTRY. OUR POSITION REMAINS UNCHANGED AS FAR AS POLITICS IS CONCERNED, AND THAT IS TO FREE OUR COUNTRY FROM SOUTH AFRICA AND TO DECLARE INDEPENDENCE FOR SOUTH WEST AFRICA. AND IN SOUTH WEST AFRICA OUR POSITION IS THAT AT THE PRESENT TIME WE ARE PREPARED TO FREE OURSELVES WITH OR WITHOUT UNITED NATIONS ASSISTANCE. WE DO THIS WITH FULL REALISATION OF THE DIFFICULTIES THAT LIE AHEAD IN OUR STRUGGLE AS WE FREE OURSELVES FROM THE SOUTH AFRICAN GOVERNMENT. WE DO NOT UNDER ESTIMATE THE STRENGTH OF THE SOUTH AFRICAN GOVERNMENT NOR WE DO UNDER ESTIMATE THE EXTENT TO WHICH THE SOUTH AFRICAN GOVERNMENT GOES TO MUZZLE OUR POSITION IN OUR COUNTRY AND TO OPPRESS OUR PEOPLE IN ORDER TO CONTINUE THE OPPRESSION IN OUR COUNTRY."
