Cover letter and report on a trip by Dumisani Kumalo to Botswana and Zimbabwe. The report discusses impressions of people in Botswana about the American Committee on Africa and The Africa Fund as well as staff members George Houser, Gail Hovey, Jennifer Davis and Sandy Boyer. The report says there is a very strong anti-Reagan feeling there and anger about the U.S. linking the issue of the withdrawal of Cuban troops from Angola with South Africa’s presence in Namibia. The report discusses South Africa’s numerous recent attacks on Lesotho, Botswana, Mozambique and Angola, both directly and through surrogates. Kumalo reports that a journalist who recently interviewed South African military personnel in Namibia was told that there would be no settlement for a long time and that South Africa is integrating former Rhodesian Army soldiers known as Selous Scouts with the South West Africa police force.
