In an interview in the then Southern Rhodesia young looking Robert Mugabe said : "We are totally opposed the concept of multi-racialism because it assumes in the first instance that the people have got to be arranged in compartments based on colour, you have Europeans in one compartment, Asians and Coloureds in two other compartments and the Africans in another compartments. And immediately you talk multi-racial you are accepting as a starting point that the races are different and this difference must be recognised, we non-racialist in our approach, that is we regard an individual as an individual and that everybody must be accorded he's full political rights wether if you are white or black, educated or uneducated, rich or poor and this is exactly why we are at the moment struggling to earn for our people one man one vote."
