The pamphlet says after 300 years of white rule, South Africa's major political parties have agreed to hold that country's first non-racial election in April 1994; the South African people will vote for members of a Constituent Assembly which will draft a constitution for a free, democratic South Africa. The pamphlet says The Africa Fund has asked Elizabeth Lands, a lawyer who observed Namibia’s independence election, to answer a few questions about the elections process in South Africa. The pamphlet discusses the African National Congress (ANC), Nelson Mandela, the National Party (NP), churches, trade unions, free and fair elections, political violence, the Human Rights Commission, documentation, identification, IDs, polling locations, first-time voters, Bantustans, Bophuthatswana, KwaZulu, election law, ballots, SWAPO, UN monitors in Namibia, the Media Commission, the United Nations, registration, farms, migrant workers barracks, intimidation, and enfranchise Africans. • Guarding Against Election Fraud • The Namibia Experience
