    Background: MR. OSCAR KAMBONA, THE FOREIGN MINISTER OF THE UNITED REPUBLIC OF TANGANYIKA AND ZANZIBAR, AND MR. KANTAMA CHIUME, HIS MALAWI COUNTERPART, HAVE BEEN MEETING IN LUSAKA TO DISCUSS THE FORMATION OF A UNITED FRONT BETWEEN SOUTHERN RHODESIA'S TWO RIVAL AFRICAN NATIONALIST PARTIES.

    WHEN THE TWO MINISTERS ARRIVED AT LUSAKA AIRPORT THEY WERE GREETED BY MR. KENNETH KAUNDA, THE NORTHERN RHODESIAN PRIME MINISTER.

    WHEN THEY BEGAN THEIR TALKS THE TWO MINISTERS SAID THAT DURING THEIR THREE-DAY MEETING THEY NOPED TO SEE REPRESENTATIVES OF BOTH MR. NKOMO'S ZIMBABWE AFRICAN PEOPLES'S PARTY (ZAPU) AND OF THE REV. SITHOLE'S ZIMBABWE AFRICAN NATIONAL UNION (ZANU). MR. KAMBONA AND MR. CHIUME WERE ASKED TO HOLD THE TALKS BY THE JULY MEETING OF THE ORGANISATION FOR AFRICAN UNITY WHICH HAD EXPRESSED CONCERN ABOUT THE LACK OF A UNITED FRONT AGAINST WHITE GOVERNMENT IN SOUTHERN RHODESIA.

    ON TUESDAY (AUG 18) WHEN THE TWO MINISTERS LEFT LUSAKA, IT APPEARED THAT THEIR TALKS HAD FAILED. MR. JAMES CHIKEREMA, WHO IS LEADING THE ZIMBABWE AFRICAN PEOPLE'S UNION DURING MR. NKOMO'S RESTRICTION, SAID THAT HIS PARTY WOULD NOT FORM A UNITED FRONT WITH THE REV. SITHOLE'S PARTY. ON THE SAME DAY THE ZIMBABWE AFRICAN NATIONAL UNION ISSUED A STRONGLY WORDED STATEMENT IN SALISBURY CLAIMING IT WOULD MOBILISE ITS FORCES 'TO PROTECT AFRICANS FROM SENSELESS, SHAMEFUL AND BRUTAL TREATMENT' BEING METED OUT TO THEM BY THE 'THUGS AND HOOLIGANS' OF MR. NKOMO'S PARTY. THE STATEMENT CLAIMED THAT MEN AND WOMEN HAD BEEN BEATEN AND FORCED TO CONTRIBUTE MONEY "WHICH USUALLY ENDS UP IN THE POCKETS OF THE COLLECTORS OR THEIR IMMEDIATE BOSSES."
