Washington, DC, United States
August 1, 1970
The newsletter notes reports around Washington that Lt. Colonel Walter Limbach, recently recalled as U. S. Naval Attache in South Africa, was an agent of the Central Intelligence Agency. The newsletter includes excerpts from a speech by Mrs. Shirley Graham DuBois prepared for delivery at the African Freedom Day commemoration at Lincoln University in Missouri that she was unable to deliver because Attorney General John Mitchell denied her a visa. Sam Nujoma, president of the South West Africa People's Organization (SWAPO), visited Washington, D.C. The newsletter reports that FRELIMO says Charles Robert Moore, Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs, made a secret trip to Mozambique in November 1969 and visited Tete province where Portugal plans to build the largest hydroelectric dam in Africa at Cahora Bassa. Contents: Report Missing U.S. Attache was CIA Man in South Africa • The Banned Speech of Mrs. Shirley Graham DuBois • Visitors • Rep. Friedel Stalls South Africa Airways Hearings • Ghana-Ivory Coast Cooperation • Who's Who at State
