  • Description

    APART FROM SMALL ISOLATED INSTANCES THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY, RHODESIA WAS QUIET TODAY, AND UP TO THE TIME OF WRITING THIS NOTHING HAD DEVELOPED IN THE WAY OF TROUBLE. NORMAL LIFE WENT ON IN THE TOWNSHIPS, AND THE POLICE AND ARMY HAD NOTHING TO DO, EXCEPT PATROL AND KEEP THEIR EYES ON THINGS...

    AT HARARI POLICE STATION, WHICH ADJOINS THE AFRICAN TOWNSHIP OF HARARI, A CONSIDERABLE COLLECTION OF WEAPONS HAVE BEEN SEIZED FROM AFRICAN HOMES IN THE TOWNSHIP, WEAPONS MADE FROM BICYCLE CHAINS, BOWS AND ARROWS, WITH VERY LETHAL TIPS, OTHER CRUEL SLASHER TYPES MADE FROM STEEL THAT WOULD CUT A PERSON TO THE BONE WITH A SWIPE...POLICE EXAMINE THE COLLECTION...NEARBY A CANTEEN DOES ITS USUAL TRADE WITH THOSE OFF DUTY.

    IN HIGHFIELD AFRICAN TOWNSHIP A HELICOPTER FROM THE ROYAL RHODESIAN AIR FORCE HOVERS OVERHEAD AS IT SHOWERS LEAFLETS ON THE AFRICANS IN THE TOWN, WISHING THEM A PEACEFUL WEEK-END. MOST OF THEM ARE TORN UP...A POLICE PATROL PASSES THROUGH...AND TO FINISH AN ARMY PATROL LEAVE THEIR MEETING PLACE AS EVENING FALLS TO BEGIN THEIR NIGHT OF DUTY IN THE AFRICAN TOWNSHIP...
