The Centre for Child Law has asked the South African Constitutional Court to confirm the judgement by the High Court in Makhanda in the Eastern Cape, which found the Birth and Deaths Registration Act unconstitutional, and remove legal barriers that prevent the births of children of unmarried fathers from being registered. Newsflash quotes Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng as raising concerns though about the risk of possible human trafficking if the judgement is confirmed. Meanwhile, the centre’s counsel, Jatheen Bhima, insists that every child has the right to a name and nationality from birth.
