History of Zimbabwe Independence Day:
Every year Zimbabwe celebrates its independence day on April 18th like other independent nations in the world. Zimbabwe was known as Rhodesia before independence and it was under the control of colonizers such as Portugal, Nyasaland, and the United Kingdom (UK). On November 11, 1965, the greatest struggle of independence of Zimbabwe (previously known as Rhodesia) from colonial power was partially ended in a Unilateral Declaration. Officially the full independence of Zimbabwe was recognized by the united kingdom (UK) on April 18, 1980.
After the independence of Zimbabwe, Robert Mugabe was the person who took the head of the state post. On August 1, 1953, the Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland was formed which was dissolved after ten years on December 31, 1963, due to huge conflicts among the people of Rhodesia and Nyasaland. In 1970 only South Africa was the country that recognizes the Republic of Rhodesia’s independence but the United Kingdom (UK) did not.
Rhodesia’s first prime minister Ian Smith was also the mastermind of the Unilateral Declaration of Independence (UDI). Zimbabwe has to face huge economic sanctions from the United Nations’ most powerful members due to Smith’s action. The negotiations between the United Kingdom (UK) and Smith failed and ended without any positive results. After independence, the elections were held and Robert Mugabe became the first head of the government of Zimbabwe in February 1980. The formal declaration of the independence of Zimbabwe was held on April 18, 1980.
