Good Governance and Ubuntu as prerequisites for poverty alleviation in South Africa: A Case Study of Uthungulu District Municipality, Rural Northern Natal

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    South Africa's young democracy continues to show teething problems as mirrored in the continuous gap that exist between the rich and the poor. These inequalities severely confront municipalities' efforts to eradicate poverty and enhance sustainable development. The article attempts to answer the question : can these developmental local governments successfully redress their two economies as linked to equity, sustainable development and good governance? The traditional notion that policies and government structures are adequate guarantors of a quality of life, good governance and sustainable development is questioned. The interrelatedness between good governance, ubuntu and poverty alleviation is therefore explored.
