CU: Joshua Nkomo, ZAPO chairman, speaking.
NKOMO: "We are Zimbabweans who got to live there. Not the British. Not the Americans. No plan, in our view, can be drawn up without us and nobody in this world has a right to draw up a plan for us. Whatever plan Britain has, can only be a plan for presentation to a conference of British and ourselves - and not a plan to say' this is what you must have'. No one has the right to tell us what we must have. Now the Americans. We are saying what can the Americans do? Do not forget that the United Nations in these buildings agreed to mandatory sanctions, including oil sanctions. But smith still survives. How is Smith surviving? That is the question. This country knows and Britain Knows. Smith survives because of the assistance, be it direct or indirect, is besides the point. That is besides the point. The point is this....that the western world...knowingly or knowingly...but I choose to say they know....push in aid to Smith through South Africa."
