MEC for Economic Affairs, Environment and Tourism, Eastern Cape v Kruizenga 2010 4 SA 122 (SCA) : recent case law
Estoppel by representation is a flexible doctrine capable of application in a variety of circumstances, including the question of contractual liability. The courts have recognised that this doctrine may be employed to hold a party bound to the impression created of assenting to a contract, despite an absence of true agreement between the parties (Van Ryn Wine & Spirit Co v Chandos Bar 1928 TPD 417 422-424; Peri-Urban Areas Health Board v Breet 1958 3 SA 783 (T) 790; cf Benjamin v Gurewitz 1973 1 SA 418 (A) 425; Saambou-Nasionale Bouvereniging v Friedman 1979 3 SA 978 (A) 1002ff).
