  • Description

    Bishop Abel Muzorewa has strengthened his chances of leading a future black ruled Rhodesia by attracting an estimated one hundred and twenty thousand people to a post referendum, political rally in Salisbury on Sunday, (4 February)
    SYNOPSIS: The rally at the Zimbabwe soccer ground was organised by Bishop Muzorewa's United African National Council (UNAC). It served to launch the party's campaign for the planned April elections and to demonstrate the support the Bishop and the UANC have throughout Rhodesia.

    An election organiser for the UANC told reporters that if people were prepared to travel up to five hundred kilometres (300 miles) to attend the rally then those people would not be intimidated by guerrilla forces not to vote in the planned elections.

    Bishop Muzorewa said guerrilla leaders Joshua Nkomo and Robert Mugabe were murdering, extorting raping and expropriating property of the Zimbabwe masses at gun-point.
