Was Rhodesia the greatest nation ever to arise in subsaharan Africa?

You don't really need to answer, the answer is obvious.

No.

Extremely bullheaded, stubborn lot that could've saved everyone a ton of bloodshed and prevented the current disaster if they'd voluntarily adopted something like the Lancaster House Agreement from the get-go.

Instead, Ian Smith & co doubled down on an unsustainable system and made some really stupid moves like criminalizing most black African political parties that favored an end to minority rule, then arresting their leadership. They then decided it would be a great idea to imprison all said leaders in a remote camp where they freely mingled, had to cooperate in order to survive, and were basically unsupervised so they could spend their days debating and brainstorming new strategies.

The Rhodesian government then capped this colossal fuckup by releasing said prisoners without putting a bullet in their head first, after they'd had ages to make plans together. Look at the leadership of ZANU, ZAPU, and the other anti-government forces of the Bush War; tons of them met by being locked up together.

If you want good info you'll have to look for stuff focusing on the conflict, nobody big cares about wars between African countries where white people aren't involved.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Second_Congo_War
In a bold move, Rwandan soldiers under the command of James Kabarebe hijacked three planes and flew them to the government base of Kitona on the Atlantic coast.[17] The planes landed in the middle of the Kitona base, but the motley collection of troops there (ex-FAZ, but also Angolan UNITA elements and former Lissouba militiamen from Brazzaville) were in poor condition and in no condition to fight unless given food and weapons.[18] They were quickly won over to the Rwandan side. More towns in the east and around Kitona fell in rapid succession as the combined RCD, Rwandan and rebel soldiers overwhelmed government forces amid a flurry of ineffectual diplomatic efforts by various African nations. By 13 August, less than two weeks after the revolt began, rebels held the Inga hydroelectric station that provided power to Kinshasa as well as the port of Matadi through which most of Kinshasa's food passed. The diamond center of Kisangani fell into rebel hands on 23 August and forces advancing from the east had begun to threaten Kinshasa by late August.
several paragraphs about unrelated bits
A multisided war thus began. In September 1998 Zimbabwean forces flown into Kinshasa held off a rebel advance that reached the outskirts of the capital, while Angolan units attacked northward from its borders and eastward from the Angolan territory of Cabinda, against the besieging rebel forces. This intervention by various nations saved the Kabila government and pushed the rebel front lines away from the capital. However, it was unable to defeat the rebel forces, and the advance threatened to escalate into direct conflict with the national armies of Uganda and Rwanda that formed part of the rebel movement.

Mugabe's initial buildup in Kinshasha comprised special forces along with some paratroops, reportedly numbering between 600 and 1,000. By August 1998, two more battalions had been dispatched. They were accompanied by some Soviet-manufactured T-54/55 tanks, Crocodile armoured personnel carriers, and EE-9 Cascavel scout cars flown into the capital on Angolan Air Force planes. The contingent grew to 3,800 around November, and peaked at 12,000 in January 2001. The Zimbabweans began departing in 2002 and had completely withdrawn by the end of the year. Prior to this deployment, Zimbabwe had built up an apparently potent brigade-sized, combined arms, reaction force with efficient air support and professional competence; however the prolonged operations in the Congo are said to have damaged its credibility.[21]

The Air Force of Zimbabwe made particularly effective use of its air power, blunting rebel and Rwandan offensives on Mbuji-Mayi with repeated strikes by BAE Hawks and Hawker Hunters. It also sustained heavy losses during the conflict, including three of its six Mil Mi-24 Hind helicopters, a transport aircraft, and an unidentified interceptor, probably a Chinese Chengdu J-7.[22] Despite the effectiveness of its highly mobile, big-gunned Eland-90 and Cascavel armoured cars, Zimbabwean ground forces also lost a significant number either captured or destroyed by the rebel coalition.[23]

Sounds like victory for the North Vietnamese to me.

Honestly, the fact that the US even went to war in Vietnam was a massive clusterfuck and strategic defeat on their part; the Vietnamese were natural US allies in the region. Spent years fighting the Japanese alongside US troops, hated China's guts, Ho Chi Minh's personal hero was Thomas Jefferson, and they even originally planned to model their post-independence constitution on that of the US.

Literally all the US had to do was sit back while the Vietnamese overthrew their doomed frog colonial overlords, and they would've gained a friendly power acting as a check on PRC ambitions in SE Asia.

the new Zimbabwe Rhodesia House of Assembly was to consist of 100 members. 20 were to be elected on the old roll with property, income and education qualifications, which most black citizens didn't meet, and which was previously used to elect the majority of the Rhodesia House of Assembly. 72 seats were elected by the "Common Roll" which every adult in the country had a vote. Owing to the lack of an electoral roll, voters were instead marked with ink on their fingers to stop multiple voting. Once the 92 members had been elected, they assembled to vote for eight White non-constituency members. All the candidates for these posts were members of the Rhodesian Front.

So being white basically got you 8 seats to represent you no matter what, 20 common roll seats you could vote in that defacto was for whites and 72 seats you can also vote in as well.

@happy_sad
Those elections weren't fair or equal and that's what my post meant. Also having control of the education system where the quality and investment by the government in it's two sets of population is drastically day and night is also tied to the voting requirements (in regards to income and education requirements) it's obvious that investing in Black education be a super low priority past the bare minimum to secure power.
