Amidst the euphoria of 1994 many South Africans saw the democratic reform process as the precursor to fundamental changes in the state and its organs of government and administration. There was no doubt that this fledgling democracy would, through its structures, transform society to achieve the goals that had been enunciated in the liberation struggle.
