The guerrillas' immediate problem is
accepting a draft that runs contrary to
some of their fundamental beliefs and
insists that enmities of a seven-year-old
war be forgotten. The guerrillas began
their war against Smith's white gover-
nment and continue it against
Muzorewa, saying he perpetuates white
rule behind a black facade.
British Foreign Secretary Lord
Carrington, chairman of the con'-
stitutional conference that convened
Sept. 1, handed the two sides the 34-
page draft on Wednesday and asked for
responses by Monday.
SATURDAY HE called Muzorewa's
acceptance "a major step forward"
and said he hoped to get a positive
response on Monday from the Patriotic
"We have spent many hours
discussing the constitution," he said in
a statement released to reporters. "But
what is at stake is not the language of
lawyers but the life of a people."
Robert Mugabe, the Patriotic Front's
co-leader, gave notice Friday that the

guerrillas will not give a final answer
on Monday, but will seek continued
"I AM SURE Lord Carrington is not
going to insist that we take it or leave t
unless he wants a deadlock,"
Mugabe told reporters.
Britain has said the draft is as far as
it can go in accommodating both sides.
But Carrington probably will permit
more constitutional talk while he gets
past this week's annual convention of
the governing Conservative Party,
where right-wing lawmakers will press
for quick recognition of Muzorewa and
an end to 14-year-old trade embargoes.
It remains clear that within a week
the conference appears to be set for a
make-or-break crisis.
If the Patriotic Front rejects the con-
stitution, the embattled Muzorewa will
come out looking good. The bishop's
pleas that his government deserves
recognition and an end to sanctions, if
not outright military aid, would carry
new force.
