Buthelezi also is chief minister of

lost a court challenge yesterday to the
setting of the election date. The Pretoria

charges that negotiators improperly
approved the election date over the pro-
tests of KwaZulu, Inkatha and the pro-
apartheid Conservative Party. Those
groups have since boycotted the talks.
