  • Description

    Political leaders of all races met in Salisbury, Nov 1, for a meeting to "thrash out problems facing Southern Rhodesia". It was organised by Sir Charles Cumings, a Southern Rhodesian MP, who got the idea from the "Indaba" Cecil Rhodes had with the Matabele in 1896.

    In the opening speech Sir John Kennedy, former Governor of the country, said that he believed the different races in the country could work together and form a great nation. He thought it was up to the people of Southern Rhodesia to make a success of working and living together.

    Also present was Southern Rhodesia Premier Sir Edgar Whitehead and members of his cabinet. The meeting has no official backing but is a multi-racial gathering of political leaders who are ready to hear the views of their opponents.
