Retired U-S General Colin Powell has ended months of speculation by announcing his decision not to run for the White House.

Powell said the time was not yet right for him to take on the tough task of running for the U-S presidency.

The former top American general confirmed 1996 would not be the year for Colin Powell to seek the presidency.

The surprise announcement came after days of seclusion for Powell, who had huddled with family and close advisors pondering what many had urged him to do.

But on Wednesday, he said it would have to wait.

SOUNDBITE:

"To offer myself as a candidate for president requires a commitment and a passion to run the race and succeed in the quest. The kind of passion and the kind of commitment I felt every day of my 35 years as a soldier. A passion and commitment that despite my every effort I do not yet have for political life. Because such a life requires a calling that I do not yet hear. And for me to pretend otherwise would not be honest to myself and would not be honest to the American people, and I would break that bond of trust. And therefore, I cannot go forward. I will not be candidate for president or for any other elective office in 1996."

SUPER CAPTION: Colin Powell

Powell's decision is good news for key Republican candidate Bob Dole.

Dole had trailed Powell in opinion polls in recent weeks, as the former general charged ahead in a national tour promoting his new book.

Powell's pledge to help Republicans now stands to boost Dole.

SOUNDBITE:

"I will continue to speak out forcefully in the future on the issues of the day, as I have been doing in recent weeks. I will do so as a member of the Republican party. And I will try to assist the party in broadening its appeal. I believe I can help the party of Lincoln move once again close to the spirit of Lincoln."

SUPER CAPTION: Colin Powell

Some Powell insiders say the pressures of an unrelenting campaign, and the impact on his family, were key in the decision not to run.

SOUNDBITE:

"I have spent long hours talking with my wife and children, the most important people in my life, about the impact an entry into political life would have on us. It would require sacrifices and changes in our lives that would be difficult for us to make at this time."

SUPER CAPTION: Colin Powell

For Powell and his family, the battle for president would mean paying a price they weren't yet ready to pay.

Nation of Islam organisers say a (m) million African Americans have joined the Million Man March in Washington D-C although police have not yet given an official count.

The marchers have gathered at the Capitol to affirm their self-respect and protest the conditions besetting much of black America.

The controversial organiser of the march, Nation of Islam leader, Louis Farrakhan, defended his stand and said he was led by God .

Tens of thousands of African Americans, from all over the U-S, have joined the massive march on Capitol Hill.

The marchers came with one message - unity among black men.

They waved dollar bills to emphasise the economic power of black people.

The crowd was asked to reflect on the status of African Americans, to renew the same sense of purpose that sparked the civil rights movement more than 30 years ago.

But there was no doubting the centre of attention, the man who organised the march, Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.

He made his way to the stage to thunderous applause but despite the welcome, the lead up to the march has been rife with criticism for what some have labelled his racism.

Farrakhan has called Judaism a "gutter religion" and recently defended his use of the term "bloodsuckers" to describe Jews,

He addressed these issues in his speech.

SOUNDBITE:

So today, whether you like it or not, God brought the idea through me. And he didn't bring it through me because my heart was dark with hatred and anti-Semitism. He didn't bring it through me because my heart was dark and I'm filled with hatred for white people and for the human family of the planet.

SUPER CAPTION: Louis Farrakhan, Nation of Islam Leader

Farrakhan displayed his skills as an orator in front of the huge crowd, calling on them to look at each other and realise what a triumph it was that they were all there.

SOUNDBITE:

We responded to a call and look at what is present here today. We have here those brothers with means and those who have no means. Those who are light and those who are dark, those who are educated, those who are uneducated.

SUPER CAPTION:Louis Farrakhan, Nation of Islam Leader

He called on them to be proud of their skin colour and rejoice in being 'new Americans'.

SOUNDBITE:

There's a new black man in America today, a new black woman in America today.

SUPER CAPTION:Louis Farrakhan, Nation of Islam Leader

But many marchers stress that the Million Man March is about much more than Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.

They say they're in Washington - not to support Farrakhan but to save the idea of black brotherhood and to create a new movement.

SOUNDBITE:

"This isn't about Farrakhan, this is about respect, unity and love for the brothers. And we're trying to get something out of this, out of life. We're tired of being behind everything, we want to be in charge sometime. We want to unify and that's what this is about - unity. Look at all these brothers around here."

SUPER CAPTION: Marcher

Black leader Jesse Jackson led the crowd in chanting to exalt the diversity of the human race.

SOUNDBITE:

JJ: 'Olive, gold'

Crowd: 'Olive, gold'

JJ: 'Red and yellow'

A key witness at the O.J. Simpson murder trial in Los Angeles,

Police Detective Mark Fuhrman, returns to the witness box on

Friday (10/3), and is likely to face questions that he is a liar

and a racist. On Thursday (9/3) in front of a predominantly black

jury, Fuhrman -- a key investigator in the double-murder case --

flatly denied ever having met a woman, kathleen bell, who has

publicly accused him of making racial slurs and advocating

genocide for blacks. Former football star and actor, O J Simpson is charged with the double murder of his ex-wife, Nicole, and a male acquaintance.
