In particular, the evidence shows, time and time again, that such initiatives use force to govern security, and that when they do so, they fail to live up to the Weberian ideal, which requires that all force used to promote order be used in ways that are authorized by states. Herein lies a conundrum. The conundrum is that poor communities have available to them a huge potential resource for the governance of security— namely, their local knowledge and capacity—but the use of these resources is seldom supported by states to enhance the security governance of these communities because their use has been shown, time and time again, to—in simple terms—do more harm than good.

By 2007 the rollout process was completely funded by the South African national government. At the end of 2009, for reasons that have yet to become fully apparent, at the time of the change from the Mbeki to the Zuma presidency, funding from the national government came, without any warning, to an abrupt end in the middle of a two-year contract term. This occurred despite the fact that the contract had anticipated a planned rollout of the program beyond the Western Cape to the whole of South Africa on a province-by-province basis according to an agreed upon timetable.

The Zwelethemba experiment was an attempt to try something relatively new within the realm of local security governance without being sure of the outcome. This trying took the form of a series of trials over several years beginning in 1997 to develop a set of robust and repeatable procedures for practicing legitimate and effective nonstate security governance at local levels and to develop a regulatory environment that would govern the use of these procedures. The intention of the experiment was to explore the possibility of developing a preventative, future-focused model that drew on the knowledge and capacity of local residents to both understand the reasons for insecurity and develop forward-focused solutions that would create a better tomorrow.
