(Submitted to the Rhodesia Herald by JL but rejected for publication, i.e. censored)
I believe it is called ‘Journalistic Licence’ when a newspaper does what the Sunday Herald did to the M’kudu story on Sunday last (see also yesterday’s Rhodesia Herald) – slipping in to headlines and text inflammatory words like “Mau Mau” which excite interest. I think it stinks and, significantly, I am reminded of the infamous Rhodesian Front black/white ‘school legs’ advertisement of November (1962?). If I were Mr. M’kudu I would protest most vigorously.
