NWAUCHE, ES. Affiliation to a new customary law in Post-Apartheid South Africa. PER [online]. 2015, vol.18, n.3, pp. 569-592. ISSN 1727-3781. http://dx.doi.org/10.4314/pelj.v18i3.04.
This article examines the possibility that in the post-apartheid South African legal system South African citizens can voluntarily change their customary law and affiliate to a new one in the true spirit of citizenship. The article argues that such a change would affirm the dignity of all South Africans and would significantly enhance the vision of a truly non-racial society envisaged by the Constitution and contribute to social justice.
