ABSTRACT
The article questions the objective of an international mediation to install a black majority rule in Rhodesia in Geneva, Switzerland in 1976. Under the influence of U.S. State Secretary Henry Kissinger, Rhodesian Premier Ian Smith agreed to a program to allow the ascendancy of blacks. But there is doubt as to the unity and therefore, the goal of all the black representatives in the Geneva meeting. For one, Robert Mugabe would prefer liberation through terrorist activity. For the whites in Rhodesia, majority rule would mean a state deprived of minority rights.
