South African Constitutional Court

Buffalo City Metropolitan Municipality versus Metgovis (Pty) Limited CCT 78/18

The central issue for determination is whether the Court a quo did not misapply South African law on conclusion of a tacit contract involving the Applicant, an organ of State, on procurement of a service provider, when it found that “Where a response has been requested from a party and that party has failed to respond, a tacit contract may be inferred, when according to ordinary commercial practice and human expectation firm repudiation of such assertion would be the norm if it was not accepted”.
