Bonner was scheduled to undergo heart bypass surgery Monday. "Nobody can be happy about any operation," her son-in-law Efrem Yankelevich said. "But in my view it's good that she has it now, because if she needs it in a year, she wouldn't get it in Russia. They (Soviet doctors) don't do this kind of operation; at least they don't do it on a regular basis." JOHANNESBURG, South Africa i AP> — The State Department's top African eipert toured Johannesburg's trasc-riddea black townships Sunday, hours after a black activist who was to be one of his hosts was hacked to death by political rivals. Ample Mayisa. 58, was chased from his home in Leandra township 74 miles east of Johannesburg, and kflled by about 10 blacks ranging in age from 16 to 30 about two hours after sundown Saturday, according to his son, Joshua Mayisa, and other Leandra residents. On Sunday, Chester Crocker, assistant secretary of state for African affairs, arrived for talks on independence for South-West Africa, also known as Namibia, and on the civfl war in Angola, which is related to Namibian issues. Crocker was in Luanda, the Angolan capital, on Fridav. He was tight-lipped while touring the rutted streets of KwaThema. Dudxma and Katiehong, slums east of Johannesburg. "1 am here to see and listen and communicate, but not to make any press statement," he said. Of Mayisa's death, Crocker said only, "It was terrible." In a separate development, Swiss banker and mediator Fritz Leutwiler, who is trying to help resolve South Africa's economic crisis, said after talks with President P.W. Botha that he was confident reforms to help ease the nation's international debt problems were on the way. "I leave this country with the conviction that positive political signals will be given in the not too distant future," Leutwiler said. "I also feel confident about a way out of the present financial problem." Leutwiler was named inter- mediary in September after South Africa unilaterally stopped paying back Si-t billion of its total $M billion foreign debt. He reiterated Sunday that undoing apartheid was the key to restoring South Africa's credit. Police reported rioting in six black areas, but no new deaths to the es- timawd l.CW killed in anti-apartheid violence since Sept. I?, 1984. Under apartheid, the system of enforced racial segregation, about 5 million whites rule over 2-4 million voteless blacks. Standing amid the ruins of the house and recounting his father's death.
