    Background: JOSHUA NKOMO, THE SOUTHERN RHODESIAN NATIONALIST LEADER, APPEARED IN COURT AGAIN YESTERDAY (FRIDAY) TO ANSWER CHARGES THAT HE HAD ENTERED CERTAIN RESTRICTED AREAS, IN DEFIANCE OF A GOVERNMENT BAN. (NKOMO IS BANNED FROM GOING ANYWHERE WITHIN A 15 MILES RADIUS OF THE CAPITAL, SALISBURY AND FROM CERTAIN TRIBAL AREAS.)
    HIS APPEARANCE IN COURT AT SINOIA PASSED OFF WITHOUT INCIDENT. IN CONTRAST TO HIS FIRST APPEARANCE TO ANSWER CHARGES AT HARTLEY LAST MONDAY, THERE WERE ONLY A FEW SUPPORTERS OUTSIDE THE CORRUGATED IRON COURTHOUSE.

    NKOMO'S APPEARANCE IN COURT COINCIDES WITH THE SOUTHERN RHODESIAN GOVERNMENT'S MOVE TO THWART HIS PLAN TO HOLD A DAY-LONG REGISTRATION CAMPAIGN OF ALL HIS FOLLOWERS THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY ON SUNDAY. SECURITY POLICE CARRIED OUT A SERIES OF DAWN RAIDS ON LEADING MEMBERS OF HIS PARTY, AND THE GOVERNMENT HAS DECLARED THE SO-CALLED "ZIMBABWE REGISTRATION CARDS" PROHIBITED PUBLICATIONS. NKOMO HAD PLANNED TO ESTABLISH REGISTRATION CENTRES THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY, AIMED AT COLLECTING NAMES OF "ALL THE TRUE SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF ZIMBABWE" PREPARED TO FIGHT FOR THE ESTABLISHMENT OF MAJORITY RULE, IN A "BOOK OF LIFE".
