    TRANSCRIPT: (SEQ. 3): MUDENDA: "We approved money for the liberation movement. There was unanimity. There was no debate at all. And it was significant that when our heads of state met, many of them felt that Africa was not doing enough to support the liberation movement. And therefore we expect during the current year to provide more funds. It's quite evident that the heads of state feel that we should do more. And I expect therefore that when we meet again, next year in February, we shall be allocating larger sums of money to support the liberation movement".
