  • Description

    In Zambia, a spokesman for the Black Nationalist ZAPU party (Zimbabwe African People's Union) has called the elections in Rhodesia last week a fraud. Mr. Willie Musarurwa said the already-bitter war being fought on the issue of black rule in Rhodesia (Zimbabwe) will continue to be waged with "fury and ferocity". Bishop Abel Muzorewa's United African National Council (UANC) won fifty-one of the one hundred seats in the election, making him the first black Prime Minister-elect of Zimbabwe-Rhodesia. Mr. Robert Mugabe and Mr. Joshua Nkomo, the self-exiled Patriotic Front leaders, refused to take part in talks between white Prime Minister Ian Smith and the three internally-based Nationalist movements which led to the elections. And they maintain their stance that the elections will not end the war they are waging in Zimbabwe.
