dc.description.abstract Ineffective governance and lack of effective service delivery features prominently as crises of governance in Africa. Democratic political and governmental institutions could play a role in reducing such social factors as a high rate of illiteracy and poverty. This, however, is only possible if 'the rule of law' prevails and if civil society is allowed to participate in a political, social and economic sense. This article looks at the role of civil society in promoting good governance in South Africa. The article argues that good governance is a cornerstone of reconstruction and sustainable development. The provisions of he Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, 1996 and the Reconstruction and Development Programme (RDP) form the foundation for the involvement of civil society in issues of governance. An assessment of the effectiveness of these policies and programmes is made. en
