  • Description

    Mr Joshua Nkomo, co-leader of the Patriotic Front warned on Tuesday (September 5) that the six-year-old Rhodesian bush war will intensify unless Prime Minister Ian Smith hands over power to the guerilla alliance. This follows his claim last week that he had ben offered a transfer of power by Mr Smith during secret talks in Zambia. Reuters says some African states have expressed concern that Mr Smith arranged the talks to bring about a rift between Mr Nkomo and Patriotic Front co-leader Mr Robert Mugabe. But Tanzanian President Julius Nyerere told newsmen this week that Mr. Nkomo was warned of Mr Smith's possible motives before the talks were held.
