dc.concourt.synopsis Appeal against the decision of the Full Court of the Eastern Cape. Where a social grant is unlawfully cancelled, the prescription period does not begin to run until or unless the administrative decision is set aside or reliance thereon is expressly disavowed by the State. The Court expressed doubt as to whether prescription time-limits applicable to ordinary debts could apply to constitutionally obligatory payment of social grants, but did not decide the point. Appeal upheld. Majority: Yacoob J (unanimous)
