  • Description

    The Rhodesian Premier, Ian Smith, has told white Rhodesians that they cannot defeat black nationalist guerrillas without world support. And without that support there isn't really much hope of survival. Rhodesia, he said, did not have enough men to indefinitely hold off the guerrilla based in Zambia and Mozambique. Mr Smith was speaking in Umtali on Thursday (11 January) at the beginning of his campaign for the referendum on the 30th of January, on the transitional government's proposed constitution for a predominantly black ruled Zimbabwe (Rhodesia).
