Letter from Abel Muzorewa

This letter was received by my wife, Mrs Heath, from Bishop Abel Muzorewa when he was the President of the short lived nation of Zimbabwe-Rhodesia and refers to a chocolate cake that she had baked for Lester Heath who was a member of a patrol unit of anti-terrorist police in the North of the country. Lester shared the cake with the Bishop when he joined the patrol for lunch that would have been just 'sadza', made from maize, the basic Zimbabwe native food in the Tribal Trust Lands and urban areas.
