The newsletter includes an article by Edward Morrow, Anglican vicar-general in Namibia, in which he reports on his being expelled from Namibia, after the Security Forces watch his every move. He discusses apartheid in Namibia and South Africa, including Bophuthatswana, and the results of an initiative by the five Western nations who are permanent members of the UN Security Council to end the 12-year-old war between SWAPO, the Namibian national liberation movement, and the South African Army. The newsletter reports on the founding of the Council of Churches in Namibia and the election of Bishop James Kauluma of the Anglican Church as President of the Council and Landespropst P G Kauffenstein of the German Evangelical Church Lutheran Church as Vice President. The newsletter includes a reprint in which Bishop Colin Winter, replying to Anthony Sampson, defends the Church's role in the liberation of Namibia.
