  • Description

    Rhodesia's Prime Minister, Mr Ian Smith, in holiday in South Africa, has said he will retire from politics once the transition to black majority rule in Rhodesia has been completed -- possibly by the end of this year. During his stay he has had talks with the South African Prime Minister, Mr John Vorster, and with the Foreign Minister, Mr Pik Botha. In an interview in Cape Town on Friday (26 May) he said he hoped the recent rebellion in Zaire would cause the free world countries to use their influence to curb Communist encroachment in Africa -- though he wasn't too optimistic. Mr Smith was first asked whether he thought the West should have become involved in Zaire at a sooner date.
