  • Description

    In Rhodesia, black nationalist leader Bishop Abel Muzorewa -- one of the leaders of the country's transitional coalition government designed to lead to a black-ruled Zimbabwe at the end of this year -- has spoken at a rally deep in an African reserve known to have been infiltrated by guerrillas.

    SYNOPSIS: The rally was organised by white farmers in the area and one of them, Tim Peech, aged 30, said they had contacted Bishop Muzorewa and asked him to speak at the request of the local people. Mr. Peech said that it had taken two weeks to plan the meeting and that tribal drums had been used to beat out the message of the coming event.

    Bishop Muzorewa attended a tea party before the rally. Speaking to newsmen Tim Peech said that attempts had been made to contact the Patriotic Front guerrillas who oppose the internal settlement -- and at the rally some young men claimed they would report on it to the guerrillas. But most of the 1,200 people who came were ??? listen to the Bishop's words.
