The British colony of Southern Rhodesia became part of the Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland in 1953. In 1963 Northern Rhodesia and Nyasaland pulled out of the Federation, citing the extreme conditions in the Southern Rhodesia. In 1965, Ian Smith made a Unilateral Declaration of Independence. Negotiations towards independence started in 1975 and independence was achieved in 1980.
