United Nations Security Council resolution 772, adopted unanimously on 17 August 1992, after recalling Resolution 765 (1992) concerning the Boipatong massacre in South Africa and a report from the Secretary-General, the Council authorised Boutros Boutros-Ghali to deploy observers to the country after concerns raised in the report, known as the United Nations Observer Mission in South Africa.

The Secretary-General's proposals included the deployment of observers to strengthen mechanisms established in the National Peace Accord. The observers would be stationed in agreed locations across South Africa.[1] If necessary, the Observer Mission could be supplemented by appropriate international organisations such as the Organisation of African Unity, the Commonwealth and European Community. 50 observers were dispatched by September.[2]

The Council requested the Secretary-General to report quarterly or more frequently on the implementation of the current resolution, and asked for the full co-operation of the Government of South Africa, parties and organisations.
