  • Description

    Bishop Abel Muzorewa, the head of the external wing of Rhodesia's African National Council, (ANC), said it may soon call on Cuban regular troops to help it topple the white minority Rhodesian government.

    In an interview with Swedish Television filmed on Saturday (20 March), he said nationalist guerrillas would soon begin using sophisticated antiaircraft weapons against the Rhodesian Air Force.

    The Bishop said there was a growing tendency in the Council to involve mercenaries, as he called them, in its efforts to bring down the Rhodesian administration.

    Meanwhile, attempts to revive the talks between Prime Minister Ian Smith and the leader of the A.N.C.'s internal wing continued in both London and Salisbury on Tuesday (23 March).
