this morning The House of Parliament voted in favour of repealing the land apportionment act with 90 MPs - 10 in opposition. Prime Minister Parrish released a statement applauding parliament for the decision to repeal the racially motivated and illiberal legislation credited with giving 97% of land in Rhodesia to a minority of just 3% while 97% of the native population was deprived of their land and restricted to a harsh existence on poor and infertile land. Tribal chieftains have expressed their graditude to Parrish.

this morning in parliament National Democratic MP, Richard Clyde purposed a bill calling for the adaptation of a new national flag in order to capture the essence of Rhodesia free of the imperial birth pains and attachments.

Clyde is quoted as having stated the following - "our country has been nominally independent since 1965 by what reason have we to keep a flag which demonstrates to the world an almist insane and fierce devotion to a dead empire which betrayed us almost half a century ago? Let us face facts and for the sake of future generations render our national identity anew with fresh air."

Mr. Clyde has faced fierce criticism from MPs representing the interests of the ruling Rhodesian Front and the hardliners of The Rhodesian Action Party.

this morning at around two gunfire erupted near the border with Mozambique as communist insurgents overran a border checkpoint after a three hour firefight with thirty lightly armed security guards who's bodies were found in the middle of the road.

At around nine in the morning four bombs went off in the city center of Bulawayo killing 45 and wounding roughly 100+ commuters on their way to work

The afternoon brought little respite as insurgents killed a white farmer and his family near Umtali. prior to the farmers death at the hands of an AK wielding terrorist a radio call was sent to the local BSAP task force which arrived long after the farmer was killed, his wife raped and the killed along with their teenaged daughter of 17 years. The House was reportedly set alight along with a small portion of the Tobacco crop

The Security Forces will lay minds along the border and has been given orders to shoot on sight of encroachment upon Rhodesian soil.

In parliament today the Rhodesian Action Party launched a sweepingly fierce attack upon the government calling Mr. Parrish's administration to be "weak and devoid of competence as Rhodesians are butchered by kaffirs trained and financed by the Marxist regime in Mozambique."

This morning crowds gathered in the city center of Salisbury to commemorate the allied victory over the forces of Nazi Germany as well as the Rhodesian contribution to the cause of liberty between 1939 amd 1945. All flags were placed at half staff and the playing of the last post heard. At noon the Royal Rhodesian Air Force conducted a fly pass which was cheered on by Rhodesians of all races. Prime Minister Kawari announced the issue of a commemorative medal for those who fought for Rhodesia and lived. At 11:10 pm the 1964 sky blue ensign which had adorned the country since independence was replaced with a flag of black, white, red, and green bearing a Zimbabwe bird.

Black for The African Majority,
White for The European Minority and Reconciliation,
Red for the bloodshed by all Rhodesians during the civil war,
Green for the fertile soil and argicultural industry,
The Zimbabwe Bird symbolizes the historical past of Rhodesia as well as its African identity.

The Union Jack shall only be flown on Pioneer Column Day and The Monarch's Birthday as well as Royal visits and Commonwealth meetings on Rhodesian Soil.

Rhodesia remains loyal to the crown and constitution, God Save The Queen!
