  • Description

    The British Foreign Secretary, Dr. David Owen will be leaving London on Sunday (April 10) for a week's visit to southern Africa. He will be seeing all the leaders who were concerned in last year's attempts to get a settlement for the future of Rhodesia. But he has said he is making the visit to inform himself, rather than to propose any specific new moves to break the present deadlock.

    SYNOPSIS: Mr. Ivor Richard, chairman of the Geneva conference, was the last British government representative to cover much the same ground. In January, he met President Nyerere of Tanzania and the other "front-line" African Presidents. Mr. Richard went to Salisbury, which Dr. Owen is not scheduled to do. He will meet both Mr. Vorster of South Africa, and the Rhodesian Prime Minister, Mr. Ian Smith, in Cape Town.

    Mr. Richard with President Machel in Mozambique. After all these meetings, he went to Kenya. There he spoke of the dangers if the guerrilla warfare being waged by the nationalists in Rhodesia got out of control.
