  • Description

    A leading Rhodesian churchman said Thursday (April 27) that the World Council of Churches was wrong - though well-intentioned - in making grants to an anti-Racist programme in Rhodesia.

    Speaking at his home near Salisbury the Rt. Rev. Paul Burrough, Anglican bishop of Mashonaland - the province in which Salisbury is located - said the Council was inevitable supporting violence.

    The Bishop was interviewed on his return from Zambia, where he had addressed the seventh provincial synod of the Central African Province of the Anglican Church.

    Bishop Burrough said he expected the Peace Commission - which sought to find out how Rhodesian people fault about the proposed Independence settlement - would give no clear verdict, and leave it to the two governments to sort the matter out.
