The Constitution of South Africa is the Supreme Law of the country and the Constitutional Court is in turn the highest court of appeal in the country. The Constitutional Court has the jurisdiction to determine not only constitutional matters but also any other matter, if the Constitutional Court grants leave to appeal on the grounds that the matter raises an arguable point of law of general public importance which ought to be considered by that Court.
