dc.description.abstract This study aims to explore various strategies that address the decline in moral values in South Africa and also find solutions that shall enhance African Renaissance. A number of solutions will be explored to promote a positive sense of Africanism in different aspects of life. These will include morality, discipline, economy, culture, religion, languages, education and other related aspects. Moral regeneration is crucial in ensuring stability in our country; this could be the main reason why it has been embraced with such enthusiasm. It includes taking responsibility for all South Africans, young and old, rural or urban, rich or poor, male or female, black or white, etc. Some South Africans believe that an African Renaissance may be achievable through reverting to old traditional ways of life. It is through these ways that moral values may be inculcated successfully. 1hese views may, however, be challenged. It is also true that other avenues relevant to present days' situations and circumstances may be applicable and used successfully. Whilst keeping in mind that times change, it is imperative to bear in mind that traditional moral values stand beyond space and time. There are common values that are fundamental to all. Those are the values that will be investigated with a view to achieve the vision of the African Renaissance. en_US
