In diversity there is strength.

The South African coat of arms bears the motto "ǃke e: ǀxarra ǁke" which is written in the Khoisan language of the ǀXam people and translates literally to "diverse people unite".

So it is with Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA). By being the custodian of a number of disciplines (Board Gaming, Card Gaming, Esports, and Wargames), MSSA is able to lend resources and admini
strative ability to all the disciplines.

Many sports federations work this way, such as Athletics South Africa and Swimming South Africa.

According to MSSA, maintaining the strength and uniqueness of each discipline is vital to the long term growth and sustainability of each discipline.

Thus, under the astute leadership of current MSSA President, Amanda Pakade, MSSA will revert to awarding Protea Colours per discipline.

In other words, when a Reg
istered Player is awarded Protea Colour for an esports title, the wording undereath the Protea badge shall read, "Esports". For a board gaming discipline, the wording undereath the Protea badge shall read, "Board Games", and so forth.

Amanda is of the opinion that this move shall further encourage and enthuse Registered Players to take greater pride in the disciplines in which they participate.
