  • Description

    On Friday (1 June) turbulent and hitherto white-ruled Rhodesia officially became the new black-dominated nation of Zimbabwe Rhodesia. When its first black Prime Minister, Bishop Abel Muzorewa, arrived for work he told newsmen he would start in spirit of reconciliation towards the Patriotic Front guerrillas based in Mozambique and Zambia. The new leaders of Zimbabwe Rhodesia have offered a general amnesty to guerrillas who wish to return to their homes in peace, but the Front has declared that it will fight the biracial coalition government as fiercely as it did the white rulers. From Salisbury, the BBC's John Humphrys reports on the last moments of the old Rhodesia and the first of the new Zimbabwe.
