"Southern Africa is in a state of political flux. The "necklace" is a ghastly reality to many people living here. so are nightly bloodlettings in many South African townships. Political forces of a variety of hues, from the far left to the entrenched right seek their own solutions to problems that have bedevilled Africa for decades. Sad to say, there is no clear solution in sight, even though the pundits regularly predict anything from a breakthrough to a total collapse. That some form of change must ultimately come, there is no doubt. A glimpse as to what form it will take will perhaps be provided by recent history, of which Africa in this era is making more than enough".
