  • Description

    Zimbabwe Rhodesian Prime Minister Bishop Abel Muzorewa is in the United States on a private visit as guest of Republican Senator Jesse Williams. It is the Bishop's first overseas trip since becoming Prime Minister and on his arrival in Washington, on Monday (9 July) he promised a 'bombshell of truth' on Zimbabwe Rhodesia for all Americans who would listen.

    SYNOPSIS: After greetings at the airport, Bishop Muzorewa embarked on a busy schedule of engagements. He described his trip as an effort to make progress towards international recognition for the new multi-racial government in Zimbabwe Rhodesia. He is also pressing for the removal of trade sanctions. The Bishop is seeing secretary of state, Cyrus Vance, talking to members of Congress, meeting newspaper editors and appearing on television during his stay. At the airport he spoke to newsmen.

    The White House says it's uncertain whether President Carter -- who is holding crucial talks at Camp David, will be able to meet Bishop Muzorewa.
