South Africa now enters a new chapter of constitutionalism. In addition, it will evaluate the Bill of Rights in the light of international human rights norms. It has discarded the old Westminster model of government, where Parliament was supreme, no justiciable Bill of Rights existed, and the court could not challenge the laws passed by the legislature. The new model of government is a constitutional democracy. The government is based upon the American and German (Rechtsstaat) concepts of the continued existence of the state, multiparty democracy, the supremacy of the constitution, and the protection of human rights.

South Africa's far-right failed to sabotage the transition from white minority rule to democracy 25 years ago. Now, conservative Afrikaner farmers are feeling relevant again under a dubious "white genocide" hashtag. Michael Lapsley, a white South African Anglican priest and veteran of the anti-apartheid struggle, uses two sophisticated steel hooks as hands. The anti-apartheid activist Michael Lapsley has said South Africa is traumatized by its violent history. South Africa's Karoo region is suffering its worst drought in a century. With taps running dry, farmers have to decide whether to keep their livestock alive - or let them die.
