  • Description

    Sir Humphrey Gibbs, Rhodesia's Governor for the last ten years has resigned. His act closes not only another episode in the Rhodesian affair, but also marks the end of British Colonial rule in the African continent.

    Rhodesia House is the Smith regime's London office. The British counterpart in Salisbury is to close in the wake of the Rhodesian decision to declare a Republic. The Governor, Sir Humphrey Gibbs has lived in siege-like conditions in Government House Rhodesia since the Unilateral Declaration of Independence (UDI) over three-and-a-half years ago. Yet despite the recent referendum and the events since UDI, Sir Humphrey has not been without support from Rhodesians. His former Aide-De-Camp, Captain Christopher Owen, spoke of the Governor:
    Sir Humphrey's son is an undergraduate at the University of Reading. He gave his view of the situation:
    Sir Humphrey is expected to come to London soon.
