    THE RHODESIAN GOVERNMENT HAS ERECTED A 9FT FENCE, TOPPED WITH BARBED WIRE, ON ITS BORDER WITH THE NEW AFRICAN STATE OF ZAMBIA.ACCORDING TO A RHODESIAN ANNOUNCEMENT AT THE END OF LAST YEAR, THIS SECURITY MEASURE FOLLOWS THE INCREASE OF PLANNED PENETRATION INTO THE COUNTRY OF PEOPLE WHO ARE "HOSTILE" TO RHODESIA.

    THE FENCE IS BEING DESCRIBED BY ZAMBIANS AS "THE BERLIN WALL".AT A RALLY THIS MONTH MR.KENNETH KAUNDA, THE ZAMBIAN PRESIDENT, TOLD A CHEERING CROWD THAT ANY BERLIN WALL AROUND ZAMBIA WAS OUT OF THE QUESTION.HE SAID HIS GOVERNMENT WAS TRYING TO NEGOTIATE WITH RHODESIA ON THE MATTER.

    THE OTHER GANG, THE REPORTS SAY, ATTEMPTED TO ATTACK FARMS IN THE SOUTH.BOTH GANGS WERE QUICKLY BROKEN UP BY THE POLICE.
