Reprint of an article from The National Christian Reporter of November 3, 1989. The article says Rev. George M. Houser was in Namibia during October at the invitation of the Council of Churches of Namibia (CNN) with several other international church representatives invited to monitor preparations for Nov. 7-11 elections that will lead to Namibia's independence from South Africa in April 1990. The article discusses whether the election can be free and fair and whether it will take place on schedule. It discusses apartheid, Hermann Sticher, South West Africa People’s Organization (SWAPO), South African troops, Cuban troops, UN Security Council Resolution 435, the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the Church of Scotland, and Okahau. The reprint says the article was also printed in the United Methodist Reporter. • Why all this attention? • Can elections be free, fair? • Elections will be on schedule
