    The British Foreign Office announced on Monday (18 October) that the black African nationalist leader, the Reverend Ndabaningi Sithole, had been invited to attend the conference on the future of Rhodesia which is to be held in Geneva. Several of the African nationalists who will attend the conference at the end of this month, are already making their way there.

    SYNOPSIS: Now of them is Mr. Joshua Nkomo, who leads one wing of Rhodesia's African National Council Before leaving Rhodesia on Sunday (17 October), he addressed a mass rally of about eight thousand supporters - many of them from Bulawayo - who staged a farewell demonstration for him in the Salisbury township of Highfield. Mr. Nkomo was going to Geneva via Kenya and Somalia. In the Somalian capital of Mogadishu, he will attend the country's October Revolution Day celebrations. Before leaving, he reviewed the prospects for Rhodesia's future.

    After leaving Salisbury he arrived in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi, where he was to have talks with the acting Kenyan Foreign Minister, Mr. James Osogo. He arrived on Monday, the same day that reports from Britain suggested that the Government would not accept the suggestion from the nationalist leaders that Britain should assume colonial responsibilities for the administration of Rhodesia during a transitional period. Mr. Nkomo spoke to reporters no arrival.
