Several recent events show increasingly close ties between the U.S. and South Africa. C.P. Mulder, South African Minister of the Interior and of Information, and Admiral Hugo H. Biermann, commander in chief of the South African Defense Forces, visited the U.S. in January and May, respectively. Two Washington lobbyists, Donald DeKieffer and Thomas Shannon of the legal firm of Collier, Shannon, Rill and Edwards, have been operating as agents of the South African Department of Information without the knowledge of the South African embassy in Washington.
