Thursday, June 14, 2018

President Cyril Ramaphosa has welcomed the initiative of Indlulamithi South African Scenarios towards 2030.

The Indlulamithi South African Scenarios towards 2030 is an independent project initiated by respected academic Dr Somadoda Fikeni, multinational Anglo American and the Mapungubwe Institute for Strategic Reflection (MISTRA).

The project is aimed at framing a national conversation, beyond the current national trajectory, to answer the question “what would a socially cohesive South Africa look like, and to what degree is it attainable by 2030?”

The Indlulamithi South Africans Scenarios 2030 considers, amongst others, the economy, work and society, environmental justice, reconciliation and redress and crime and safety.

President Ramaphosa received a briefing on the project on Wednesday during a meeting attended by Fikeni and steering committee members, Xolelwa Kashe-Katiya and Uwais Razack.

The President welcomed the initiative, saying any nation that seeks progress and development must be able to first envision it.

“The Indlulamithi Scenarios help the country understand the possible paths it can take and what needs to be done now to ensure that it takes the path of greatest cohesion, prosperity and equality,” President Ramaphosa said.

The Indlulamithi South African Scenarios 2030 will be launched on 21 June 2018 at the Kyalami Theatre on the Track. –
