Abstract:This article aims to analyze the process of embourgeoisement present in postapartheid South Africa. Comprehending embourgeoisement as a process in which there is the migration of people to the bourgeoisie ranks, it is argued that the initial events in the 1990s that marked the end of the apartheid regime can also be seen as a conglomeration of social and political-economic forces that has stimulated the ANC elites to not turning back to the economic policy restructuration of South Africa. It is concluded that there is not a clear trend in South African politics in post-1994 based on social equity. Bibliogr., notes, ref., sum. [Journal abstract]
