ANC congratulates CDE Thabo Mbeki on inauguration as UNISA Chancellor

27 February 2017

The African National Congress (ANC) congratulates former President Comrade Thabo Mbeki on his inauguration as the Chancellor of the University of South Africa (UNISA) today. We have no doubt that his vast knowledge and passion for Africa's development and the generation of knowledge will make a unparralled contribution to UNISA's academic enterprise - coming as it does at time when the institution has resolved to refashion its social identity as an African university shaping futures in service of humanity.

The ANC has always been and remains committed to the development of a better Africa, at peace with itself, prosperous, integrated and firmly in charge of its own destiny. Comrade Thabo Mbeki has undoubtedly been one of the most ardent advocates of such policies.

We are therefore confident of his success in his new role and as we wish him well we urge many other comrades, former leaders and veterans of our movement to play a more active role contributing to the intellectual and academic success of our institutions.
