The newsletter reports on the sudden release after 18 years in detention and imprisonment of Toivo ja Toivo, a founding member of SWAPO of Namibia and Pretoria's foremost political prisoner second only to Nelson Mandela of the African National Congress in South Africa. The Multi Party Conference, Pretoria's latest attempt in an 11-year effort to set in place a counterweight to SWAPO, has suffered a perhaps fatal blow. The newsletter includes extensive information on Toivo ja Toivo. [Note: Toivo's name is often spelled Toivo ya Toivo.]
