Republican Front

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.


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.
