This article focuses attention on problems related to the implementation of multilingualism in a democratic South Africa, especially South Africa after 1994. It shows that, although many plans have been made and various structures have been established, the government, as main actor in the implementation process, only seems to be giving lip-service. References are also made regarding the role of Afrikaans in the process of making multilingualism a reality in present day South Africa.
