The mountainous kingdom of Lesotho remained in chaos after an opposition leader denied a South African claim that an agreement had been reached on holding new elections. A South African negotiator announced that talks between the ruling party and opposition groups had produced a deal to hold elections in 15 to 18 months. But opposition coalition spokeswoman Mamelo Morrison said that only a "tentative agreement" had been reached to hold elections within the time frame.

An utterly peaceful two-day election in Namibia last week capped a year of astonishing democratic and economic gains in southern Africa, a long-blighted region that now offers dramatic hope for a crippled continent. In Namibia's first post-independence election, the incumbent president, Sam Nujoma, and his ruling party, the South-West Africa People's Organization, or SWAPO, swept nearly 72% of the vote in the former South African colony, a sparsely populated nation twice the size of California.
