Description:
The Republican Front Party was a political party in Zimbabwe in the 1980s, led by Ian Smith as the continuation of the Rhodesian Front. The name change came on June 6, 1981, as an attempt to distance itself from its policies of the past.John McLaughlin, "Ian Smith and the Future of Zimbabwe," The National Review, October 30, 1981, pp. 2168-70; William C. Pollard, Jr., A Career of Defiance: The Life of Ian Smith (Topeka, Kans.: Agusan River Publishing Co., 1992), pp. 105-7, 131.

On July 21, 1984, it was renamed the Conservative Alliance of Zimbabwe. At that time the party, which had an all white membership, asked blacks to join it and oppose the policies of the Robert Mugabe government.Pollard, p. 112, 131; Facts on File, 1984 ed., p. 574; "Ian Smith Invites Blacks to Join His Party," The New York Times, July 23, 1984, p. A5.
