  • Description

    African nationalist leader Bishop Abel Muzorewa has said he trusts that the Commonwealth Conference in Kingston, Jamaica, will see the end of the Rhodesian constitutional problem.

    Bishop Muzorewa was speaking to newsmen on his arrival at Kingston on Tuesday (29 April) for the conference where he had been invited to address an informal meeting to brief delegates on the latest situation in Rhodesia.

    The President of the African National Council (ANC) told newsmen that he felt the time had come for a serious effort, such as mandatory sanctions by the Commonwealth countries, to enable them to meet the Rhodesian Prime Minister, Mr. Ian Smith, at a negotiation table with "a degree of seriousness".

    The invitation from the conference chairman, Prime Minister Michael Manley of Jamaica, was decided by leaders of the 33 Commonwealth nations in private talks.
