The Council on Higher Education wishes to congratulate the University of South Africa (UNISA) on the appointment of former President Thabo Mvuyelwa Mbeki as its Chancellor. We are certain that his outstanding leadership , intellectual capabilities,  vast experience, passion for Africa’s development, and commitment to the generation of  knowledge stand him in good stead to make an immense contribution not only to UNISA, but to the higher education sector more generally. The appointment is well-timed as UNISA positions itself as an African University.
