Moseneke v Master of the High Court

Standard

Five members of the Moseneke family moved this action.

 

As the law stood when a white died intestate the will was administered by the Master of the High Court whereas when a black person died intestate the will was administered by a magistrate

It was decided that henceforth the Master of the High Court would administer the estate of black people who died without making a will. This would start with Moseneke.

This part of the Black Administration Act 1927 was severed.
