In footnote 26 to the minority judgment by Froneman J in the recent case of National Union of Public Service and Allied Workers obo Mani and Others v National Lotteries Board 2014 (3) SA 544 (CC), the court held that '[a]s a result of the Constitution Seventeenth Amendment Act of 2012, this right of appeal to the Supreme Court of Appeal no longer exists'. In the same footnote, the court went on to say that '[s]ection 168(3)(a) of the Constitution now reads: "The Supreme Court of Appeal may decide appeals in any matters arising from the High Court of South Africa or a court of a status similar to the High Court of South Africa, except in respect of labour or competition matters to such extent as may be determined by an Act of Parliament"'.
