The Reform of Customary Law of Succession and Regulation of Related Matters Bill of 2008 was discussed in 2008 Annual Survey 1084-5. As explained there, the main object of the Bill was to bring the customary law of succession into line with the decision of the Constitutional Court in Bhe and Others v Magistrate, Khayelitsha and Others 2005 (1) SA 580 (CC). This Bill became the Reform of Customary Law of Succession and Regulation of Related Matters Act 11 of 2009 ('the Act'). The Act was assented to on 19 April 2009, without a date of commencement being proclaimed (2009 Annual Survey 1038). The date of commencement of the Act has since been proclaimed as 20 September 2010 (Proc R54 GG 33576 of 17 September 2010).
