be white or black . . . and it shall continue to be that way."

says she does not anticipate any special diffi-

tasks as increasing bilateral trade and pro-
moting tourism to Uganda. At the Vatican, she
will represent Africa's largest Catholic group-

Roman Catholic, including Olowo. j
The embassador will be formally received in'
Rome this week by Pope Paul VI, an event

Olowo says she has no special instructions,
for her Vatican job but she will convey a con-

President Idi Amin.
OLOWO SAID she does not know Amin per-
