CLARITY SOUGHT ON THE DRAFTING IMPERFECTIONS OF THE NATIONAL CREDIT ACT.
Tuesday, July 14, 2020
As emphasised by the Supreme Court of Appeal, The National Credit Act is not a model of clarity and the unclear provisions of the Act were once again placed in the spotlight. The Act’s inconsistencies and the subsequent confusion has required the Courts to provide guidance in the application and interpretation of the Act. This time the Court was required to provide guidance in respect of the principle of common law set-off and the statutory provisions of the Act. The court decided that the provisions of the Act intended to amend the common law position and that any set-off on all credit agreements should be subject to the provisions of the National Credit Act.

What is it? Why is it called a secret tender? What turns on it? In terms of Rule 34 of the Uniform Rules of Court, a secret tender is a secret offer of settlement made during the course of an action, by one party to another, about which the court is not told until after judgment has been delivered.
Identified or unidentified claims: which is the lesser of two evils?
Tuesday, October 1, 2019
In the early hours of Saturday morning, 8 June, an accident occurred when the driver of a bakkie collided with a stationary motorcycle driver at a red-light intersection. Then, during the early hours of Sunday morning, 9 June, an almost identical accident occurred between two different parties at a different intersection. Both accidents were in Bloemfontein. What makes this extraordinary is that this second collision also involved the driver of a bakkie colliding with a motorcyclist at a red light intersection.
