The South African Government regards affirmative action as an important method to rectify the discriminatory career practices followed against Blacks, Coloureds, Indians and women under the previous political dispensation. Legislation and policy that provide for affirmative action in institutions have been formulated and are considered in this paper. After normative and empirical research, it is concluded that it is possible to develop strategic affirmative action programmes in local government institutions and that affirmative action can be managed in terms of a strategic process in local government. It is further concluded that managers in local governments play a key role in the successful implementation of strategic affirmative action programmes.
