  • Methodological consistency for relevant public administration research
    • Abstract: Author: Wessels, J.S. Vol 32 Issue 1 Publication: 2013 Page: 74-92 Abstract: This article argues that the findings of South African research in Public Administration are often not relevant due to research purposes that imply a combination of predominantly descriptive research, textual data sources and reading as research method.Against the background of the relevancy discourse in Public Administration, this article suggests methodological criteria for determining the relevance of research. Subsequently, scholarly articles in three peer-reviewed journals as well as doctoral theses in the period 2000-2005 were surveyed to assess the consistency between research topic, research purpose, units of observation and research methods. The current study found that thesis research is methodological consistent while articles lack consistency. Scholarly articles seem thus to lack relevancy to the needs of practice.

  • Eight days in September - the removal of Thabo Mbeki, Frank Chikane : book
           review
    • Abstract: Author: Maserumule, Mashupye H. Vol 32 Issue 1 Publication: 2013 Page: 93-96 Abstract: Frank Chikane dares tell a story most would rather forget. By writing the book, Eight Days in September - The Removal of Thabo Mbeki, Chikane needs to be venerated. For he mustered the courage to undertake a perilous intellectual adventure, which, in the introductory chapter, he termed 'The Challenge of Telling this Story'. In this book Chikane demonstrates intellectual heroism. He tells the story that, as he puts it in the book, opens wounds that were beginning to heal; a story that could have forever been buried behind the secrecy of those fateful eight days in September 2008 that saw Thabo Mbeki's brusque exit from the position of the President of the Republic of South Africa.

  • In search of nuanced methods of assessing African integration
    • Abstract: Author: Fagbayibo, B. Vol 32 Issue 1 Publication: 2013 Page: 59-73 Abstract: The proliferation of regional organisations and more importantly the phenomenal exploits of the European Union (EU) have not only lent credence to the developmental feature of regional integration, but also an obsession with the traditional methods of assessing regional integration. Because the traditional methods of assessment relate to, and are primarily based on the objectives, goals and time frames that have been agreed upon by member states, there is a tendency to underestimate or completely ignore other measures capable of impacting positively on the pace of the integration process. This article examines the possibility of adopting a syncretic method of assessment, which is not limited to the traditional elements, but also includes non-traditional factors such as civil society involvement, technology, democratisation and skills development.

  • Anxious godfathers, errant godsons : neopatrimonialism and democratisation
           in Nigeria
    • Abstract: Author: Alapiki, Henry Ukiwo, Ukoha Vol 32 Issue 1 Publication: 2013 Page: 40-58 Abstract: Since 1999 when the military government handed over power to civilian politicians, Nigeria has conducted two successive elections and is on the verge of conducting the third post transition election. Concerns have, however, been raised about the reliability of elections in allowing the electorate to exercise their political preferences given the overbearing influence of godfathers in Nigerian politics. This article traces the origins of this kind of politics and x-rays the ways in which it continues to undermine democratisation in Nigeria.

  • How popular protests influence public discourse and public accountability
           - revisiting the theory of public spheres in South Africa
    • Abstract: Author: Netswera, F.G. Phago, K.G. Vol 32 Issue 1 Publication: 2013 Page: 24-39 Abstract: This article analyses some major sociopolitical trajectories in South African society since the advent of democracy, in the light of the sociopolitical theory of "the public sphere", which was well articulated by the German sociologist, Jürgen Habermas. The article premises that the sphere of public authority, voted into power every five years, adopts goals in pursuance of the "public good", by assuming the enhancement of civil society, as well as fair, effective and accountable public service. However, public authority is likely to stray from this public mandate. Once in a while the public sphere, social movements and uncoordinated mobs continue to challenge and protest against major "unilateral decisions", arrived at in the sphere of public authority. This article provides examples of the effectiveness of the "power and decision challenge", brought about by contestations between two spheres, namely the public sphere and sphere of public authority. It concludes that the public sphere serves to provide coordinated and uncoordinated checks, aimed at the preservation of the public good.

  • Defence transformation and work alienation among white officers in the
           South African military
    • Abstract: Author: Heinecken, L. Vol 32 Issue 1 Publication: 2013 Page: 4-23 Abstract: This study claims that he objective structural factors of defence transformation have evoked subjective feelings of work alienation among whites. The relevance of this estranging transformation process, and how it affects the organisational commitment and effectiveness of the South African military is explored. Using Blauner's theory of work alienation as a conceptual framework, it is shown that white officers experience higher levels of powerlessness, meaninglessness, social isolation and self-estrangement in their military work-life. To substantiate these claims, an analysis of officers' views by race was made concerning how they view the military product and organisation, the impact of integration and affirmative action on the competency and efficiency of the military, and an analysis of employment conditions that affect belonging, identity and self-actualisation. The conclusion reached is that if such alienation continues, not only among whites, but also blacks, it can have a negative effect on the SANDF's ability to achieve the state's objective of maintaining an effective, efficient and broadly representative defence force, as well as on civil-military relations.

  • Editorial
    • Abstract: Author: Malefane, Shepherd Vol 32 Issue 1 Publication: 2013 Page: 1-3 Abstract: The Editorial Committee of the South African Journal for Political Science and Public Administration - Politeia, will during 2013 consider ways through which the academic standing of the journal can be improved. The need to embark on these new initiatives derives as a drive to continually maintain the status of the journal as an accredited journal and to make it accessible to a wider readership both in Africa and internationally. Though the activities cannot be announced as yet, as Editor, I encourage readers to be on the lookout for our future publications. Once these developments have been decided upon and confirmed, the readers will be informed accordingly and we envisage that the authors will surely be able to benefit immensely from them. The articles that have been selected for publication in this issue focus on and contribute to five topical issues that are of interest to scholars in both disciplines - political sciences and public administration.
