Example text

Thatcher agreed to convene a constitutional conference in London. Question How did a combination of internal and external pressures force the Smith government into negotiations? At the same time, there were increasing pressures on the Rhodesian government and on the Patriotic Front. By late 1979, with over 20,000 guerrillas active within the country, Smith saw the futility of his position and agreed to negotiate a settlement. Mozambique and Zambia, both of which had suffered heavy damage as a result of raids by Rhodesian security forces, and needed peace to rebuild their own economies, put pressure on the nationalist leaders to negotiate.

His education brought him into contact with many future African leaders, including Julius Nyerere and Kenneth Kaunda. In the late 1950s, Mugabe taught in Ghana, where he was influenced and inspired by Kwame Nkrumah. These early years influenced his political thinking, pushing him towards the left and Marxism. Robert Mugabe (left) with Georges Silundika (centre) and Joshua Nkomo (right) in a photograph taken around 1960 Methods of achieving independence Fact A song by the Jamaican reggae singer Bob Marley called ‘Zimbabwe’ had been an inspiration to guerrilla fighters during the nationalist struggle.

As Leaver states: ‘To African nationalist movements of the 1960s and 1970s, Great Zimbabwe proved what most whites sought to deny – that blacks had, could, and would create a great nation. ’ What was the role of armed struggle in achieving independence? ZAPU, ZANU and the move to guerrilla warfare As seen in Unit 1, ZAPU was formed in 1961 after the National Democratic Party (NDP) had been banned. ZAPU’s first president was Joshua Nkomo (see page 30) with the Reverend Ndabaningi Sithole as chairman and Robert Mugabe (see page 30) as secretary.
