  • Description

    Bishop Abel Muzorewa, President of the Rhodesian African National Council, said on Monday (4 June) in an interview that the Dean of Salisbury Cathedral banned him from the pulpit for political reasons.

    He said he accepted the Dean's assurances that there was no racial intention behind the ben.

    Bishop Muzorewa said in the interview at his home in an African suburb of Salisbury that he thought the Dean had expected he would make a political statement on the theme of the week at the Cathedral -- Christian unity.

    He also said that most Africans still reject the settlement terms for independence from Britain being pressed by the Rhodesian Government. He said he was certain Mr. Ian Smith, wanted a settlement and added that he though churches and churchmen should take a greater political role in Africa.
