Africa KAMPALA (AP) President Milton Obote of Uganada Friday his country will have no alternative but to withdraw from the Commonwealth if Brit- ain decides to sell arms to South Africa. In a speech to the National Assembly, Obole said the sales would create an arms race in Africa and implications of the sale would extend beyond the bonds of British interests in safeguarding the Cape of Good Hope sea routes. He said, that with British arms, South Africa would not only become more powerful but also more arrogant toward the liberation movements to which "Free Africa" was committed toough the Organization of Af- rican Unity. Obote said the arms sales Would imply that Britain was not concerned with apartheid policies. The president said that to pol- icing the sea routes for Britain, South Africa also could effec- tively control traffic to East and Central Africa and strangle states in those areas to which she was hostile.
