  • Description

    IN SALISBURY, SOUTHERN RHODESIA, YESTERDAY (MONDAY), MR.R.A.BUTLER, THE BRITISH MINISTER FOR CENTRAL AFRICAN AFFAIRS, PAID COURTESY CALLS ON SIR ROY WELENSKY, THE FEDERAL PRIME MINISTER, AND MR.WINSTON FIELD, THE NEWLY-ELECTED PRIME MINISTER OF SOUTHERN RHODESIA.

    MR.BUTLER WILL BE HAVING VITAL TALKS WITH THE TWO PRIME MINISTERS DURING HIS STAY, WHICH POLITICAL OBSERVERS SAY FORESHADOW THE END OF THE PRESENT CENTRAL AFRICAN FEDERATION.ANY RECONSTRUCTED FORM OF ASSOCIATION BETWEEN NORTHERN AND SOUTHERN RHODESIA WILL INVOLVE THE FUTURE ROLE OF SIR ROY WELENSKY AND THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT HE HEADS.MR.BUTLER HAS SAID THAT HE HAS NO SET PLANS FOR THE FUTURE OF THE FEDERATION, AND ANY DECISIONS WOULD DEPEND ON THE OUTCOME OF TALKS DURING THE NEXT TWO WEEKS.

    SIR ROY WELENSKY'S FEDERAL PARTY WAS SWEPT FROM POWER IN SOUTHERN RHODESIA LAST MONTH BY R.FIELD'S WHITE-RULE RHODESIAN FRONT PARTY.MR.FIELD BELIEVES THAT FEDERATION HAS COMPLETELY FAILED.

    THE VISIT OF MR.BUTLER HAS CREATED TENSE EXPECTANCY AMONG THE FEDERATION'S EIGHT MILLION AFRICANS AND 300,000 EUROPEANS, IT IS BELIEVED THAT HE WILL SEEK TO GET ALL THE GOVERNMENT LEADERS TOGETHER AT A ROUND TABLE CONFERENCE LATER, POSSIBLY IN LONDON, TO WORK OUT A SOLUTION.
