The author expressed the optimistic view that 1982 has brought the constitutional dawn for South Africa. He was hoping to find the signs of this dawn in the Buthelezi Report and in that of the President's Council. This optimism was based on the fact that both these reports suggested that the country's next constitutional move would have to be in the nature of a novus actus interviens rather than a new attempt at tinkering and improvisation as in the past with the drafting of previous constitutions for South Africa.
