    (FOR FOUR YEARS, THE CONGOLESE GOVERNMENT HAD BEEN TAKEN IN BY WHAT THE EGYPTIAN GOVERNMENT HAD BEEN CONSTANTLY PREACHING ABOUT FRIENDSHIP AND SOLIDARITY AMONG THE PEOPLES OF AFRICA. BUT WE'VE NOT BEEN LONG IN REALISING THAT WHAT ALONE HAS BEEN GUIDING THE PRESIDENT OF THE UAR HAS BEEN FEELINGS OF DOMINATION OVER THE MEMBER NATION OF BLACK AFRICA...WHAT PRESIDENT NASSER WANTS IS A CONGO LOST, DISORGANISED AND IN A STATE OF ANARCHY BECAUSE HE PROFITS BY IT.)

    Background: MR. TSHOMBE, THE CONGOLESE PRIME MINISTER IS IN PARIS AFTER HIS DETENTION IN CAIRO. HE FLEW IN TONIGHT (FRIDAY) AND TOLD A PRESS CONFERENCE AT THE AIRPORT THAT PRESIDENT NASSER OF EGYPT WAS "MOTIVATED ONLY BY A FEELING OF DOMINATION CONCERNING THE CONGO AND BLACK AFRICA."
    HE SAID THE UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC HAD LAID A TRAP FOR HIM IN CAIRO A THING UNHEARD OF IN MODERN DIPLOMACY.

    MR. TSHOMBE'S DETENTION ON TUESDAY FOLLOWED THE ANNOUNCEMENT BY NON-ALIGNED CONFERENCE OFFICIALS MEETING IN CAIRO THAT HIS ATTENDANCE AT THE SUMMIT WOULD BE INOPPORTUNE.

    THE HEADS OF MEMBER STATES OF THE ORGANISATION OF AFRICAN UNITY TONIGHT IN CAIRO DISMISSED A COMPLAINT BY THE CONGOLESE PREMIER AGAINST THE UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC GOVERNMENT. THE COMPLAINT WAS UNANIMOUSLY REJECTED ON THE GROUNDS THAT THE RESOLUTION BARRING HIM FROM THE CONFERENCE WAS PASSED BY THE NON-ALIGNMENT CONFERENCE AND APPROVED BY PARTICIPANT AFRICAN COUNTRIES.

    MEANWHILE THERE'S A MYSTERY ABOUT SOME CONGOLESE GOLD IN CAIRO. MR. TSHOMBE SAYS TWO TONS OF IT ARE BEING ILLEGALLY HELD BY THE EGYPTIAN GOVERNMENT.
