    Background: ADDIS ABABA, ETHIOPIA

    African heads of state and governments gathered in Ethiopia on April 28 were praised by President Kenneth Kaunda of Zambia for their efforts in the struggle against poverty. Dr Kaunda was speaking in Addis Ababa on the second day of the Silver Jubilee celebrations of the United Nations' Economic Commission for Africa (ECA). Before the speech, delegates wished Dr Kaunda a happy 59th birthday with a gift of flowers. After paying tribute to their host, Ethiopia's Head of State Mengistu Haile Mariam, Dr Kaunda reminded delegates of the ECA's achievements. He said the ECA had paved the way for the establishment of the Organisation of African Unity (OAU). He also said that both organisations were pledged to continue the struggle against hunger, ignorance, disease, crime, and above all, the exploitation of the poor by the rich.
