  • Description

    Splits between Rhodesia's black political parties have emerged since the one-man, one-vote elections ended in a major victory for Bishop Abel Muzorewa. His United African National Council (UANC) won fifty-one of the seventy-two black seats in the majority rule Parliament, and, in May, Bishop Muzorewa will be sworn in as Rhodesia's first black prime minister. The election, and the ability of the new government to take over, has been seriously challenged by the Reverend Ndabaningi Sithole, leader of the Zimbabwe National Union (ZANU). At a news conference in Salisbury on Saturday (28 April), he described the bi-racial election as "a big cheat".
