The mailing says members of The Africa Fund team of observers to help monitor Mozambique's first multi-party elections have all reported in their safe arrival in Maputo; elections will be held on October 27th and 28th; and these elections will be the culmination of a peace process which brought the sixteen year war between the Frelimo Government and Renamo (Mozambique National Resistance) to an end. The mailing says team members are being deployed all over Mozambique along with fellow-monitors from the National Council of Churches and the U.S. Catholic Bishops' Conference. The mailing discusses and includes information on Ruth Brandon Minter, the Christian Council of Churches of Mozambique, Joaquim Chissano, Afonso Dhlakama, Mozambique Liberation Front (FRELIMO), National Union for the Total Independence of Angola (UNITA), the Frontline States, and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation. The mailing includes SOUTHERN AFRICA-POLITICS: SUMMIT TO DISCUSS MOZAMBIQUE by Paul Chintowa and CHISSANO RULES OUT COMPROMISE WITH OPPOSITION.
