Administrative law

In this area we test the decisions or administrative actions of public entities, state owned enterprises, any government departments, agencies and public principals or their servants, to determine their fairness, reasonability and transparency. We institute internal appeals or review of administrative actions, bring applications to courts with jurisdiction to declare decisions of offending organs as unlawful, be set aside and that some matters be referred back to such organs for a proper lawful decision. Decisions subjects to administrative action are usually, decisions not to award a tender, disqualification of tenders, unreasonable cancellation or withdrawal of tenders, refusal to grant or issue identity documents by Department of Home Affairs, awarding of tenders to non-qualifying bidders, refusal to recognize traditional leaders, regents, chiefs, principal traditional leaders, senior traditional leaders, traditional communities, traditional councils, refusal of access to information held by the public body, and so forth.
