  • Description

    Mozambique, taken over by a revolutionary Marxist black government last year from a white-dominated colonial regime, is ideologically and racially opposed to its white-ruled neighbours -- Rhodesia and South Africa. But in order to survive, the Mozambiquan government is being forced to continue the old economic links with South Africa -- for in its colonial era the nation was strongly linked to its bigger and stronger neighbour. The old ties are proving difficult, if not impossible, to sever. There is some evidence, too, that the principal port of Maputo is being used to export Rhodesian chrome -- the most important export of all for Mr. Ian Smith's regime. A British film crew went into Mozambique to find out just how many trading links still exist between the widely-diverse nations, and came back with this report.
