  • Description

    Anglo-American hopes of arranging an all-parties conference on the future of Rhodesia appeared on Thursday (30 November) to have suffered a further setback. The Salisbury government announced that it was deferring the introduction of total black majority rule. It said that elections in April would be followed by a government of national unity in which whites would still maintain a prominent position in the cabinet. This arrangement is expected to last until at least 194. Following the decision Prime Minister Ian Smith spoke to newsmen - and his stand was supported by black nationalist members of the transitional government, the Reverend Ndabaningi Sithole and Bishop Abel Muzorewa.
