  • Description

    Rhodesian Africa Nationalist leader Bishop Abel Muzorewa told the United Nations Security Council in New York Wednesday (16 February) that 99 per cent of Rhodesian Africans were opposed to the Anglo-Rhodesian settlement proposals.

    Bishop Muzorewa had arrived earlier in the day from London, where he had been attempting to rally opinion against the proposals for the settlement issue. He told the Security Council that the proposals were based on what he termed "the illegal and racist 1969 Rhodesian Front Constitution".

    Britain's delegate to the Security Council, Sir Colin Crowe, defended the counting inquiry of the Pearce commission -- in Rhodesia to test reaction to the proposals -- and repeated his opinion that the commission should be allowed to finish its investigations. He also pointed out that Bishop Muzorewa was a member of the African Nationalist movement, founded expressly to oppose the settlement terms.
