South Africa became party to the 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees, the 1967 Protocol Relating to the Status of Refugees and the 1969 OAU Convention Governing the Specific Aspects of Refugee Problems in 1995. These instruments are the core international human rights laws that promote and protect the rights of refugees. To make these instruments enforceable at the national level, in 1998 South Africa adopted the Refugees Act 130 of 1998, which was later amended by the Refugees Amendment Act (33 of 2008).

Fusion...A small word packed with possibilities. From the simplistic beauty of a lava lamp to science nerds, complete with pristine white lab coats, hovering over their microscopes watching nuclei combine; our world is full of fusion. Ford has encapsulated the spirit of fusion by melding sleek, modern style with the mundane family sedan. The result is a vehicle that is both economical and "sensible" whilst being performance focused and fun to drive.
