Abstract

MARUMOAGAE, Motseotsile Clement. The law regarding pension interest in South Africa has been settled! Or has it? With reference to Ndaba v Ndaba (600/2015) [2016] ZASCA 162. PER [online]. 2017, vol.20, n.1, pp.1-22. ISSN 1727-3781.  http://dx.doi.org/10.17159/1727-3781/2017/v20n0a1637.

This article reflects on the law relating to pension interest in South Africa. In particular, it assesses whether the Supreme Court of Appeal in Ndaba v Ndaba (600/2015) [2016] ZASCA 162 adequately clarified how this area of law should be understood. In the light of the inconsistent approaches from various divisions of the High Court, it has not always been clear how the courts should interpret the law relating to pension interest in South Africa. In this paper, aspects of this area of law which have been clarified by the Supreme Court of Appeal are addressed. The paper also addresses aspects of this area of law which the Supreme Court of Appeal had not settled and which could potentially be subject to future litigation. The paper is based on the premise that while Ndaba v Ndaba is welcomed, the Supreme Court of Appeal nonetheless missed a golden opportunity to authoritatively provide a basis upon which the law relating to pension interest in South Africa should be understood.
