Page 538, Column 1. Replace Paragraph 2 with:

Furthermore, the author consolidated Mazmanian and Sabatier's variables and simplified their language. Mazmanian and Sabatier had multiple variables addressing themes from different viewpoints, which made the framework's structure clunky and repetitive. Their language was also unnecessarily complex (DeLeon, 1999). The author merged the actor-related variables by themes and substituted terms with those used in contemporary policy studies to facilitate viewpoint comparisons, reduce repetition and make the framework more user-friendly.

Page 539, Column 1. Replace Paragraph 2 under 'Policy targets' with:

Regarding facility type, policymakers aimed to eradicate 'black buckets' - the containers used in household pail-based systems, which were the apartheid government's primary means for servicing non-white areas. Considered relics of discriminatory governance (RSA, 1996b), policymakers centred the FBSan vision and funding on replacing buckets with either a ventilated pit latrine (VIP) or an equivalent technology per household.

National policymakers (DWAF, 2001, 2003) stated that

Page 539, Column 2. Replace paragraph under 'Technical aspects' with:

While policymakers envisioned a VIP or its equivalent per household, they did not prescribe FBSan technologies or servicing ratios in recognition that policy had to suit a diverse range of conditions, and that implementers needed discretion to progressively realise objectives based on available resources and local conditions (DWAF, 2003). National policymakers, however, noted that municipalities and beneficiaries were to agree on technology, and recommended waterborne sewerage for high-density urban areas.

Page 540, Column 1. Replace Paragraph 1 Lines 1-3 under 'Clear objectives' with:

Implementers are often faulted for misinterpreting policy guidance. CoCT (2001) officials, however, indicated their understanding

Page 540, Column 2. Replace Paragraph 1, Lines 1-4 under 'Financial allotment' with:

Another major policy assumption was that municipalities had sufficient FBSan funds through capital subsidies and O&M tariffs (DWAF, 2003)
