Once Mugabe had taken office, many white Rhodesians were impressed by his friendly and business-like attitude. He was not at all what they had expected, going by his reputation. He wanted the whites to stay, and work together with him, he said. Smith met with him several times to discuss problems that needed to be solved in order to retain white confidence in the future of the country. During the first few months Mugabe appeared sensible and anxious to address and solve these problems, which included increasing communist propaganda in the media and attacks on white farmers by ZANU terrorists. Mugabe's promises to take action, however, were not fulfilled, and slowly Smith began to wonder if
he was not resorting to the tactic of feigning ignorance and passing the buck to his various ministers when in fact they were following his instructions. Recently I had experienced a growing uneasy feeling that he was gradually reverting to his true colours as a dedicated communist. (p. 365 Die Groot Betrayal)
