Abstract

Post-apartheid South Africa has not only seen South Africa expand its presence in other parts of Africa: we have also witnessed the `Africanisation? of South African society. With democratisation, Africans from other African countries have migrated to South Africa in increasing numbers. The effect of this expanded African immigration (both legal and illegal) has been profound: townships and workplaces now reflect a regional demography that has presented its own opportunities and challenges, writes DARLENE MILLER and SIMON MUSHAVATU.
