In a news conference at the Royal Commonwealth Society, on Thursday (11 August) a joint statement condemning the Anglo-American peace plan for Rhodesia, was made by the British representatives of the African National Congress of South Africa; the South West People's Organisation of Namibia, and the Patriotic Front of Zimbabwe. Mr Arthur Chadzimgwa of the Patriotic Front of Zimbabwe explained their opposition to reporters.

    Bishop Abel Muzorewa, leader of the United African National Council is also in Britain for talks with British and American officials. At a meeting with Dr Owen, on Thursday (11 August) Bishop Muzorewa submitted his own four point peace plan for Rhodesia. He told reporters before coming to Britain that if the Anglo-American peace plan failed, than Britain would be to blame.
