  • Description

    IN SOUTHERN RHODESIA, AT TRIANGLE, NEAR FORT VICTORIA, WHERE NOT MANY YEARS AGO LITTLE EXISTED BUT WILD GAME, A NEWLY-BUILT GIANT SUGAR FACTORY IS IN PRODUCTION, HELPING THE ECONOMY, AS ONE OF THE BIGGEST CONCERNS IN THE COUNTRY. AT PRESENT, TOBACCO IS THE LEADING INDUSTRY.

    PRIME MINISTER IAN SMITH WAS THERE TO GREET THE 700 GUESTS PRESENT AMONG THEM MANY FROM SOUTH AFRICA. IN OPENING THE FACTORY HE SAID THAT HIS GOVERNMENT WAS DETERMINED TO INTRODUCE STABILITY IN SOUTHERN RHODESIA ECONOMICALLY AND POLITICALLY. IT WAS ONLY BY DOING SO THAT INVESTORS AT HOME AND ABROAD WOULD BE WILLING TO PROVIDE THE VAST SUMS NEEDED FOR THE COUNTRY'S DEVELOPMENT.

    TRIANGLE IS NOW FLOURISHING. IT HAS AN UP-TO-DATE YOUNG TOWN WITH HOSPITAL AND SCHOOLS, AND AROUND IT THE FIELDS OF GROWING CANE, IRRIGATED BY THE HARNESSING OF RIVER WATER IN THE AREA.

    MR SMITH SAID IN A BROADCAST THAT DAY THAT IF HIS GOVERNMENT FAILED TO NEGOTIATE INDEPENDENCE WITH BRITAIN, HE WOULD LAUNCH A REFERENDUM FOR ONE.
