South Africa has entered the globalising village comprehensively after the democratic elections in 1994. For the past 14 years the country had to commence with the introduction of policies within a borderless world and had to ensure that its public services and the recognition of human rights meet internationally recognised norms and standards. The democratically elected government has to eradicate injustices of the past and simultaneously has to retain the level of economic and social development required to be able to provide services to all sectors of the South African society. Government has to provide the required political guidance to accommodate all members of a diverse society; prevent racial and other differences hampering development; and develop best practice for all the public institutions to obtain efficient and effective service delivery amid growing needs; unlimited expectations; limited financial resources; and limited human resource capacity.
