What Happened2

 

 

 

 

 

On This Day in 1979 saw the end of white rule in Rhodesia

Ian Smith

Rhodesia formally ended nearly 90 years of white minority rule and declared it will now be known as Zimbabwe-Rhodesia.
In the absence of any official ceremony crowds of revellers, mainly black, gathered in the streets of Salisbury and surrounding townships at midnight to mark the change.
Although the name may have changed and there are 12 black faces in the cabinet under a new, black prime minister — Bishop Muzorewa — much will stay the same.
The man in overall command of the military will remain in his post, as will those in charge of the army, air force and police.
The jobs of top civil servants — all white — are protected under the new constitution.
Ed:" This didn't last long!"

Wood joined The Rolling Stones in 1975 after the departure of Mick Taylor.
Ed:"Also known for his many paintings of the Stones!"

 

On This Day in 2005, Crazy Frog was at No.1 on the UK singles chart with 'Axel F'!
