The paper provides a critical appraisal of changes that have marked the political discourses on immigration from within and outside the Southern Africa region in the aftermath of the elections in the Republic of South Africa. It also provides insights into the connections of these changing discourses with the rise of social intolerance of immigration from other African countries. The immigration policy in the apartheid period was highly controlled and somewhat in favour of immigration of foreign labour within the Southern Africa region. In the post-apartheid period, the imperative of social reconstruction and with it that of universalism in service delivery have induced a shift in the discourse on immigration, making it markedly exclusionary and selective, since the country has had concurrently to deal with increased immigration flows refugees, irregular and regular and shortage of skills. This has had some social repercussions reflected in the negative public perception of immigration, especially that of African origin. The prevailing climate of xenophobia and other forms of social harassment towards African foreigners, accompanying the immigration discourses, finds its roots in the social representations brought, locally, about by the new dispensation of the post-apartheid regime and, internationally, by the redefinition of the strategic positioning of South Africa in the context of globalization. It is in line with these needs that the political discourse on immigration has been over the past years increasingly focused on curbing irregular migration unwanted migration.

This case study explores the South Durban community’s struggle against disproportionate exposure to a hazardous environment and sulphur dioxide pollution, and at the same time, being faced with “clear and present” health hazards linked to petrochemical industrial production. To unpack the environmental justice challenges facing post-apartheid South Africa, the case study examines the role played by the South Durban Community Environmental Alliance in articulating environmental injustices and poor environmental responsibility of the petrochemical industry in South Africa.
Environmental justice struggles in contemporary South Africa have their foundation in struggles against t he legacy of apartheid politics and spatial planning discourse and practice. Analysis of post-apartheid South Africa requires framing issues within a historical context; taking into account a painful history that left deep social, economic, political, and ecological environmental scars. It is through recognizing the impact of apartheid that one is be able to unpack contemporary environmental justice struggles and how they are closely tied to socio-political injustice.
Durning states that Apartheid was not only an example of political injustice but it was also the most glaring example of environmental injustice apartheid. Consequently, the black South African communities are overburdened by both disparate exposure to industrial pollution and socioeconomic deprivation. They live in extreme poverty and work in hazardous conditions.
They bear the public health costs of environmental injustice associated with the petrochemical industry. These health costs include high levels of asthma, severe chest complaints, and cancer. It is against this background that the South Durban Community Environmental Alliance is fighting for environmental justice in post-apartheid South Africa.

In , the then-President of South Africa, Thabo Mbeki, appointed two senior judges to investigate and prepare a report on the Zimbabwean national elections. The government denied the application, stating that the report was prepared for policy formulation and that it contained confidential information provided by foreign state officials. It invoked sections 41 1 b i and 44 1 a of the PAIA as grounds of refusal.
It held that the government did not provide viable factual basis to support its grounds of refusal. Subsequently, the government appealed to the Constitutional Court of South African. The Court decided that the North Gauteng High Court, pursuant to section 80 of the PAIA, had the power to examine the contents of the report in order to determine if the government had to make the report available. The High Court resolved that the contents of the report did not support the grounds of refusal asserted by the government.
But since the government did not initially establish its refusal upon this section, the affidavit remained inadmissible. The Court also found that the report contained additional information from private individuals and organizations, rendering the report as non-confidential.
