The Kgalema Motlanthe Foundation and I wish to congratulate the Mapungubwe Institute for Strategic Reflection (MISTRA) on the occasion of their 10 Year Anniversary.

The achievements of MISTRA flow out of the combined efforts and contribution of every researcher, academic, policymaker, practitioner and partner in this organisation. This powerful shared capacity to link its work with the public and private sectors, civil society, and other social partners, accentuate MISTRA as an institution that continually encourages all to push the boundaries of what is possible.
