Remark Upsets
Zimbabwe Jews

New York (JTA) —
Leaders of the Jewish com-
munity of Zimbabwe have
written to President Robert
Mugabe, protesting a
"derogatory statement
about Jews" he is reported to
have made last Friday, the
World Jewish Congress re-
ported.
Muriel Rosin, president of
the Central African Jewish
Board of Deputies, the WJC
national affiliate in Zim-
babwe, said the letter asked
for clarification from
Mugabe and requested a
meeting with him.
According to published
reports, Mr. Mugabe's
remarks were made during a
visit to peasant farming re-
gions in western Zimbabwe.
The peasants apparently
complained that white ran-
chers were refusing to allow
their livestock to graze on
private lands, despite
drought conditions in the
area.
"Commercial farmers are
hard-hearted people — you
would think they were
Jews," local newspapers
quoted Mr. Mugabe as say-
ing.
Mr. Rosin told the WJC
that the Jewish community
was "horrified and
distressed" by the reported
remark.
Zimbabwe has a Jewish
population of under 1,200,
divided between the cities of
Harare, the capital, and
Bulawayo.

Vaclav Havel
Resigns Post

Prague (JTA) — A golden
era for Jews in
Czechoslovakia may have
ended this week as President
Vaclav Havel stepped down
from office after a tenure
that lasted only 935 days.
Mr. Havel resigned on the
eve of the imminent dissolu-
tion of a 74-year-old union
between Czechs and Slovaks
and the collapse of the fed-
eral government that ruled
over the federation.
A majority of Slovak
members of the new federal
parliament refused earlier
this month to re-elect Mr.
Havel and the Slovak Na-
tional Council, Slovakia's
parliament, declared the re-
public's independence.
The playwright-president
led his country's "Velvet
Revolution" against Com-
munist rule in 1989, and left
the presidential palace with
promises not to be gone from
public life for too long.
