This is an appeal which was heard in the North Gauteng High Court, Pretoria, on the 23 October 2014. Teffo J had granted an order in favour of the respondent (the applicant in the court a quo), that there was a valid customary marriage between her and the deceased (the son of the appellant, the third respondent in the court a quo). She also ordered that the marriage be registered, and that the Registrar of Marriages in the Department of Home Affairs issue a certificate to that effect.
