No South Africa is not a communist country, it is a constitutional democracy.

The democratically elected ruling party, the African National Congress (or ANC) has left wing ties, and in fact a large volume of its support base is comprised of the South African Communist Party (SACP) and its trade-union allies, who fall under the umbrella of the Congress of South African Trade Unions (COSATU).

It could be considered to be a left-of-centre democracy, but is not communist.

Although South Africa is not considered a communist state the current ruling party, namely the African National Congress, holds an agreement, known as the Tripartite Alliance, with the South African Communist Party and the Congress of South African Trade Union. All members of the Tripartite Alliance hold senior positions in the current government and strongly influence party policies.

South Africa is a capitalist country. What you own, belongs to you and repossession of land without compensation is not yet a problem as is in a country such as Zimbabwe. There are some people who believe that socialism would help South Africa seeing as poverty is a huge problem, but a socialist South Africa is just an idea and won't be happening in the foreseeable future.
