"The South African Democracy Education Trust (SADET) was established as a project Trust after President Thabo Mbeki indicated his concern about the paucity of historical material on the arduous and complex road to South Africa's peaceful political settlement after decades of violent conflict.

"Following discussions with the private sector, core funding for SADET was provided by MTN and the Nedbank Group. In 2004 the National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund gave SADET a grant which is used for funding for additional research.

"SADET’s activities are overseen by a Board of Trustees, chaired by Dr Essop Pahad, and includes Minister Lindiwe Sisulu, Ms Eunice Maluleke of MTN, Adv Selby Baqwa SC of Nedbank, Mr Seth Phalatse, Dr Vincent Maphai, Mr Isaac Makopo, Dr Yvonne Muthien, Dr M Matlou, Prof Bernard Magubane, Minister Collins Chabane and Dr Gregory Houston. Mr Michael Mpanza serves as secundus for the Nedbank representative on the Board. The project team consists of Dr Sifiso Ndlovu (Executive Director) and Mrs Elsa Kruger (Project Administrator)" [1]
