World IN BRIEF : SOUTH AFRICA : Zulu Leader Accuses ANC of Power Grab

From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Zulu leader Mangosuthu Gatsha Buthelezi said Nelson Mandela’s African National Congress is seeking monopolistic power as the white National Party is giving it up. “We do not want any future head of state of South Africa to have the kind of power that (Iraq’s) Saddam Hussein has over everything that lives and breathes in his land,” Buthelezi told the inaugural conference of his Inkatha Freedom Party. Inkatha supporters and pro-ANC Zulus are in a power struggle that has claimed about 4,000 lives.
