Black faces in Parliament

Black faces in Parliament

What about compromise with Muzorewa? Even the Rhodesian press is speaking of the necessity to reach some sort of agreement and 'to put some more black faces in Parliament'. But whereas this might have worked three or four years ago, the situation is different now and political awareness and conscience have reached a stage now where the African will not be caught napping. Too much hardship, and inhumanity have been caused to him and his brothers since the Pearce Commission episode for him to trust the white regime at all. Muzorewa will seek talks, but those talks will be aimed at creating a real policy of self-determination, not a facade to appease some white consciences.
