§ 53. Mr. Biggs-Davison
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department (Central African Office) if he is aware that the home and tea-room in Ndola of Mr. Isaiah Nakalonga have been repeatedly stoned and he himself threatened with death by supporters of the United National Independence Party; and, as this is one of many instances of intimidation of Africans opposed to the United National Independence Party, what new measures are now to be taken to check political violence in Northern Rhodesia.
§ The Prime Minister
Mr. Nakalonga's tea-room was stoned both during the weekend 7th-8th April and the Easter weekend. These incidents appear to have taken place as the result of rivalry between the United National Independence Party and the African National Congress. The Governor has assumed additional powers under the Preservation of Public Security Regulations and this, together with increased police patrolling, appears to have checked the tendency to violence on the part of the adherents of these parties.
