In recent years conventional approaches to the claiming of damages in contract and delict respectively have come under increasing strain. A particular shibboleth regarding the law of damages is that a plaintiff may only claim his negative interesse if he bases his claim on a delictual action. In Transnet Ltd v Sechaba Photoscan (Pty) Ltd (2005 1 SA 299 (SCA)) the supreme court of appeal dispensed with this approach in holding that prospective loss of profit suffered as a result of the fraudulent non-awarding of a tender may indeed be claimed by way of a delictual action.
