Party and State in South Africa

Party and State in South Africa written by political analyst and commentator Dr Mzukisi Qobo, argues that the lack of clarity about where the party ends and the state begins frustrates democratic consolidation and slows growth and development. In his view this issue lies at the heart of many of the country’s problems: it has created conditions for corruption on a large scale, weakened key institutions, and slowed delivery on socio-economic commitments with implications for political stability at the local level.
