  • Description

    Within a week of the election landslide victory by Rhodesian Prime Minister, Ian Smith, one of the country's black nationalist leaders, Reverend Sithole, has rejected the Smith plan for a broad based government with black leaders. Reverend Sithole was speaking at a news conference in Salisbury (7 September) where he called on other black leaders to forge a united front in opposition to the present regime. However, his suggestion was dismissed by all other nationalist political parties, including those of Bishop Abel Muzorewa, Mr Joshua Nkomo and Mr Robert Mugabe. This has been interpreted by some observers to indicate that the struggle for power in the troubled country will continue at least until a national, plebiscite is held for both black and white Rhodesians.

    SYNOPSIS: Reverend Sithole called the news conference to outline his position on peace initiatives in Rhodesia:
