1. University of Johannesburg Colleges/University
The University of Johannesburg (Johannesburg, South Africa) came into existence on 1 January 2005 as the result of a merger between the Technikon Witwatersrand (TWR) and the Rand Afrikaans University (RAU). Prior to the merger, the Daveyton and Soweto campuses of the former Vista University had been incorporated into RAU. The new institution is the largest contact university in South Africa, with nine faculties spread over five different campuses. It is not uncommon for alumni to still refer to the university incorrectly as RAU.

The Democratic Alliance is a South African political party and has been the official opposition at national level since the 1999 general election. It has also been the governing party of the Western Cape Province since the 2009 general election. The DA is broadly centrist, though it has been attributed both centre-left and centre-right policies. The party is consequently a member of the Liberal International and the Africa Liberal Network. The party traces its roots to the anti-apartheid movement of the 1970s and 1980s. During this time, it was known variously as the Progressive Party, the Progressive Reform Party and the Progressive Federal Party, and featured prominent anti-Apartheid activists such as Helen Suzman, Colin Eglin, Harry Schwarz and Frederik van Zyl Slabbert. During the 1990s the party was known as the Democratic Party, and rose from relative obscurity into official opposition. The party was renamed Democratic Alliance in 2000 after the merger with the New National Party and the much smaller Federal Alliance. The NNP had as its forerunner the party of apartheid architects, the National Party.
