The Guardianship Act 192 of 1993 was repealed and applications for guardianship is now governed by s 24 of the Children's Act which provides that such applications must be made to the High Court. The inherent common-law powers of the High Court as the upper-guardian of all minor children within its area of jurisdiction formed the historical background to certain statutory powers vested in the High Court in relation to children. I understand your argument in relation to the FULL parental right afforded by way of Section 21. I am sure that this will be tested in due course.
