Atrocities against supporters of Joshua Nkomo allegedly committed by Zimbabwe's President Mugabe are examined. Rhodesia, a symbol of white racism, has become Zimbabwe and white minority rule has given way to black majority rule. However, the end of the guerrilla war may not mean an end to fighting. Correspondent Charlie Cobb finds a rift between the nation's two black leaders that threatens to split the country along tribal lines.
