GMI In the News

Gildenhuys Malatji Director speaks at the Ismail Mahomed Law Reform Essay Competition.

Speaking at a function honouring the 2015 winners of the Ismail Mahomed Law Reform Essay Competition in Pretoria this last weekend, Aneesa Mahomed, Director at Gildenhuys Malatji and niece of the late Chief Justice Ismail Mahomed, made a poignant speech noting that it was easy for those in power to believe themselves to be invincible – ‘but as history has shown us, when hopelessness and despair characterises the existence of the ordinary citizen, no law, no police force and no amount of discourse can stop them from abandoning rationality and resorting to violence’.

GMI provides free wills and expert advice during national Wills Week.

GMI is proud to be associated with National Wills Week that will be running from 12 September to 16 September 2016.

Wills Week aims to help South Africans understand the importance of having a valid will, and to ensure that people who would not usually be able to afford a will from a qualified attorney, get one for free.

Those in need of a will have been made aware about this opportunity through the marketing efforts of Law Society of South Africa (LSSA).

Wills are often tricky to get right if one is not aware of the legal pitfalls. It is therefore vitally important to have your will drawn up by an attorney to ensure that your assets are divided in exact accordance with your wishes. Having your will drawn up by an attorney also ensures that no-one can attack the will’s validity. It often happens that wills are attacked because they were drawn up by a layman who could not ensure that all legal requirements were met.

Dying without a will can also cause problems for those you leave behind as it can result in the estate taking much longer to wind up, leaving the family without financial support in their hour of need. By drawing up a clear will, unhappiness and conflict between family members are also minimised.

GMI has made resources available to ensure that those without a will get a basic will and testament at no cost. Interested people can contact GMI directly on 012 428 8600 from 12 to 16 September to make an appointment.

Statement by Gildenhuys Malatji on Behalf of Pravin Gordhan.

Minister Pravin Gordhan has asked us to clarify the perception of some that he has not co-operated with the Hawks and acts as if he is above the law as well as state institutions. Nothing can be further from the truth. The Minister responded fully to all the Hawks’ enquiries, offered to provide any further assistance they might require and scrupulously acted in accordance with the law.

GMI wins big for Bonitas Medical Scheme.

The Pretoria High Court ruled that Louis Pasteur Hospital Holdings (Pty) Ltd had to repay an amount of R44.2million to Bonitas Medical Scheme. Due to the in duplum rule, interest on the amount has been capped but Bonitas is looking to recover the full R88.4million from Louis Pasteur Hospital Holdings. The claim arose from a cession of investment policies ceded by Bonitas as security for obtaining funding for the development of private healthcare facilities aimed at serving previously disadvantaged communities. It was held that Louis Pasteur Hospital Holdings engineered a change in the status of the policies which can justifiably be described as dishonest. The court awarded costs on an attorney-and-client scale based on the dishonest defence proffered by the defendant. Bonitas was represented by Gildenhuys Malatji’s Commercial Litigation and Public Law department.

GMI Acts on behalf of the IEC in the NFP Election Case.

The case was a second attempt by the National Freedom Party to obtain an order from the Electoral Court allowing it to contest Wednesday’s elections. The NFP was disqualified from contesting those elections after it paid its electoral deposit 20 days late. Its initial application to the Electoral Court, seeking condonation for the late payment, was dismissed. The NFP then requested the IEC to amend the electoral timetable in order to regularise its late payment. The IEC declined this request, indicating that doing so would not be in the interests of free and fair elections.

Basson seeks Leave to Appeal.

On the 29 July 2016, Dr Basson sought leave to appeal against the judgment and order of Unterhalter AJ, delivered on 22 April 2016, in respect of which Dr Basson’s review application had been dismissed with costs. Unterhalter, AJ, granted Dr Basson leave to appeal to the Supreme Court Of Appeals as he was of the view that another court could reach a different conclusion than the one he arrived at.
