Pretoria, South Africa, October 20, 2005 (e-news UNISA vol 4 of October 2005) – Newly appointed US ‎Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs, Dr Jendayi Frazer, addressed a select audience at UNISA on ‎the “Reshaping of US Foreign Policy towards Africa”.‎
Many senior policy makers from the South African Department of Foreign Affairs, including Deputy Foreign ‎Minister Sue van de Merwe, leaders of think-tanks, media and select scholars attended the breakfast round ‎table.‎

By all accounts the event was hailed a brilliant inaugural of the College of Human Sciences’ new programme ‎on African Intellectuals, which is coordinated by Professor Tandeka Nkiwane. ‎

In his concluding remarks, Professor Barney Pityana called for more dialogues of this calibre for a more ‎nuanced understanding and development of African foreign policy issues.‎

The US Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs called also on intellectuals to be more involved on the ‎ground in shaping African foreign policy issues, and expressed her appreciation for the excellent questions ‎posed to her and the involvement of UNISA academics as organic intellectuals in a number of African ‎countries, such as Somaliland.‎
