Abstract: Leaders of various South African government institutions are still referring to apartheid as the reason for
inequalities in the society even after more than 25 years of democracy. The purpose of this study was to
investigate the impact of the South African government history on the daily operations of the democratic
government. Using cross-sectional analysis, this study analyzed data collected from ward councilors and
community members. The study found that leaders of the democratic government still use the apartheid
government as the excuse for poor public service delivery. The history of the South African government
must be used as a point of reference and not as a reason for poor public service delivery. The majority of
ward councilors of the eThekwini Municipality were selected based on their political history and not based
on merit. This study answers the question regarding the correlation between poor public service delivery
and the use of the apartheid regime as an excuse.
