The report says The Africa Fund is addressing these challenges and opportunities with programs to support reconstruction, development and democracy. The report says all across Africa a new surge if energy is rising to obliterate the legacy of discrimination, deprivation and dictatorship, the deviation of apartheid and its wars; democratic elections have brought new leaders to countries like Malawi; the end of civil war in Angola and Mozambique brings promise that the ballot will replace the bullet. The report says The Africa Fund is taking a delegation of state legislators to Zimbabwe, Namibia and South Africa to meet many newly elected officials, strengthen capacity and directly experience local needs.
