1965 - White–only rule

Prime Minister Ian Smith of the Rhodesian Front (RF) declared independence of Rhodesia and subsequently withdrew the country from the British Commonwealth.

His governance heralded 15 years of white-only rule in Rhodesia. He also ordered the arrests of Robert Mugabe and Joshua Nkomo. They would both spend 10 years in jail.
