He once said: 'I don't believe in black majority rule in Rhodesia, not in a thousand years.' The Hon Ian Smith was the country's Prime Minister for 16 years until it became independent Zimbabwe five years ago. One day the priorities were white, capitalist and discriminatory. The following morning they were Marxist-Leninist, populist and multiracial.
Today Ian Smith is a minority leader in the Zimbabwe parliament. The Prime
Minister, Robert Mugabe, has refused to speak to him for over three years. Where is Zimbabwe going? What does the future hold for its white population?
Tonight Ian Smith is open to the questions of young people from all over Britain.
