    THE LEADER OF THE ILLEGAL RHODESIAN REGIME, MR. IAN SMITH, IN A NEWS CONFERENCE IN?

  • Description

    THE LEADER OF THE ILLEGAL RHODESIAN REGIME, MR. IAN SMITH, IN A NEWS CONFERENCE IN SALISBURY YESTERDAY (THURSDAY) SAID HE BELIEVED THAT 'LIKE IT OR NOT' RHODESIA HAD BECOME A REPUBLIC.

    MR. SMITH MADE HIS COMMENTS ON THE FUTURE OF RHODESIA IN A STATEMENT PRECEDING A GENERAL NEWS CONFERENCE. HE MADE IT CLEAR, HOWEVER, THAT HE WAS SPEAKING WITHOUT HAVING LEARNED THE ADVICE OF GOVERNMENT LEGAL ADVISERS.

    MR. SMITH'S REFERENCES TO RHODESIAN REPUBLICANISM HAVE NOT MET WITH ANY VISIBLE SIGNS OF JUBILATION AMONG THE RHODESIAN PEOPLE. THE REBEL LEADER SAID THAT HIS REGIME WOULD POSSIBLY SEEK A MANDATE FROM THE RHODESIAN ELECTORATE BEFORE A REPUBLIC WAS DECLARED.
