    Background: AFRICAN NATIONALIST LEADER MR KENNETH KAUNDA ON SUNDAY (DEC 8) GAVE A SPECTACULAR START TO HIS PARTY'S CAMPAIGN FOR THE COMING ELECTIONS IN NORTHERN RHODESIA RIDING IN A WHITE CONVERTIBLE, FLANKED BY MOTORCYCLE OUTRIDERS, HE HEADED A MOTORCADE OF 250 CARS THROUGH THE STREETS OF LUSAKA.

    THE UNITED NATIONAL INDEPENDENCE PARTY (U.N.I.P). LED BY MR KAUNDA,IS WIDELY EXPECTED TO WIN THE FIGHT AGAINST ITS THREE OPPONENTS IN NEXT MONTH'S POLLING AND IF IT WINS, HE HIMSELF WILL BECOME THE COUNTRY'S FIRST AFRICAN PREMIER, HEADING IT IN IMMEDIATE SELF GOVERNMENT TO BE FOLLOWED LATER IN THE YEAR BY FULL INDEPENDENCE. THE MINERAL-RICH BRITISH PROTECTORATE WILL THEN BE KNOWN AS ZAMBIA.

    AFRICANS WILL BOTE FOR 65 CANDIDATES ON A MAIN ROLL AND EUROPEANS FOR 10 ON A RESERVED ROLL. U.N.I.P. WILL CONTEST ALL 75 SEATS IN THE NEW LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL AND IS PUTTING FORWARD THREE EUROPEANS.

    ADDRESSING A MASS RALLY AFTER THE MOTORCADE, MR KAUNDA SAID THAT IF HIS PARTY WON, TOP JOBS WOULD GO TO MEN WITH THE NECESSARY QUALITIES AND TRAINING. HE WOULD AIM AT TRAINING EVERYONE -- BLACK, WHITE OR BROWN. THE TRADITIONAL TRIBAL CHIEFS, HE SAID, WOULD NOT BE OUSTED FROM POWER; THEIR POSITION WAS "FIRMLY ENTRENCHED".
