  • Description

    Former Prime Minister, Ian Smith, says his Rhodesian Front party has rejected the latest British constitutional proposals covering security and the judiciary in Zimbabwe Rhodesia. Mr. Smith told a news conference in Salisbury on Sunday (7 October) that his party would not stand for what he termed tampering with the country's security and law and order. His statement came immediately after a three and a half hour meeting with Rhodesian Front Members of Parliament. He had just returned from the four weeks of talks at the Zimbabwe Rhodesia conference in London. He said the country's remaining white leaders would throw out the British-drafted constitution -- already agreed in principle by his government -- unless major changes were made.

    SYNOPSIS: Mr. Smith said he was speaking for the Rhodesian Front Party, which holds a veto in the Zimbabwe Rhodesian government -- now led by Bishop Abel Muzorewa.
