Thanks for your email. As soon as we have the approval, I will contact Andrew (our
government contact) and also copy you, Isla and Dumisani on the messages.

This looks fine and I hope the board gives feedback soon.
I am available in Gauteng for meetings and if Isla is willing to meet first then I can
also go with her to meet the phone companies.

Unfortunately it took us much longer to get back to you than expected. We (or at
least me) didn't know that Isla was on holiday, so there was some sort of confusion
along the away. Maarten and me wrote a little report on our meeting with
the government heritage officials last week, which can be found
We essentially just want to know if the WMZA board approve of this idea and whether we can
go forward with discussions regarding it with government. We would appreciate any comments
as soon as possible, because we need to arrange the next meetings and so forth.
As mentioned in the report; we have their full support and they committed to a formal
partnership with Wikimedia ZA should this proposal get approved by the board. If there is
any further questions, feel free to ask. Anyone else is also more than welcome to comment
regarding this idea of ours. Thanks.
