Marriages of indigenous people -- Webinar/Online seminar

A vast amount of uncertainty exists as to the validity of certain marriages entered into in terms of the Black Administration Act 38 of 1927, the Recognition of Customary Marriages Act 120 of 1998 and marriages concluded subsequent to 1 December 1988. The purpose of this webinar is to provide more clarity on these Acts, as well as case law and directives issued on this thorny issue.
