The Employment Act (47:01) and the Bill of Exchange (Cap 46:02). and any statutory provision which conflicts with the Constitution is invalid.

QUESTION 3 B i) Advise Boitumelo on his legal right. therefore he lacked the 'animus contrahendi'' A contract is concluded on the basis of ''consent'' between one or more parties. In general advertisements are not an offer but mere '' INVITATIONS TO TREAT'' but in this circumstance the advertisement was interpreted as an ''offer'' since it was seriously made and there was '' animus contrahendi'' by the defendant. and it apparently rejected the seller's contention that the conditions of sale (requiring purchasers to acquaint themselves with the merx and making the sale voetstoots) precluded the purchaser from relying upon that mistake.´ Mr Thabo should have enquired or seek clarity on the items before he assumed that the items were regarded as one. iii) What type of mistake is this. each bearing a number for identification. A unilateral mistake is where only one party to a contract is mistaken as to the terms or subject-matter contained in a contract. the plaintiff could not recover the reward advertised since he was unaware of it. A mirror was displayed on a marble table and Pratley made a bid on the table thinking that the mirror formed part of the table. You cannot 9 . See also Bloom V American Swiss Watch Co. supra. 1915 AD 100 It was held in this case that even though the defendants had made an offer to anyone who dispatched information leading to the arrest of thieves that had stolen certain jewellery from the defendant and recovery thereof. A general offer to the public is one which can generally be accepted by any member of the public who meets the specifications of that offer. There is a decided case similar to this.QUESTION 3 A i) Advise Mr Thabo on his legal rights. He refused to pay separately for the mirror and was sued by the auctioneer for the purchase price. On the other hand in Maritz v Pratley (1894) items were displayed for auction. In Maritz v Pratley. according to contract law? (3 marks) The mistake is unilateral mistake. Prospective purchasers were requested to inspect the goods which were to be put up for auction. (3 marks) The issue is whether Thabo can get both the watch and computer. The contract was therefore void. The court ruled that there had been a mistake (error) regarding a fact material to the contract and consequently no consensus had been reached. Since the facts are similar this means Thabo is not entitled to get both the computer and watch and this renders the contract void ii) What advice can you give to the auctioneer? (3 marks) The auctioneer should always make it clear to the bidders that by bidding items one at a time. (3 marks) The issue is whether Boitumelo is entitled to claim for a reward arising from an advert which she was not aware of. the Court held that an auction sale was void by reason of an error in corpore.

QUESTION 3 C i) Advise Mr Milton of his legal rights Mr. is sufficient to make a binding contract. The plaintiff.accept something which you are not aware of. (3 marks) Since Boitumelo gave information at the time when he was not aware of the offer he was not entitled to a reward. would you give him different advice and why? (2 marks). Milton will have to act according to Actio quanti minoris. provided the necessary information. an eyewitness to the murder. had she known of the defects in the good. but by other motives. ii) Advise the company on its legal rights. it is a remedy granted to the buyer to reduce the price of something she has bought and that has hidden defects. The idea is to provide the buyer with a remedy that permits her. if it is in her best interest. The fact that the plaintiff performed the necessary conditions set out in the offer. iii) If Boitumelo had read the advertisement first before bringing the information. If he had read the advert the fact would have been the same as the Carlil case and he was going to be rewarded. This is an offer when considered in the light of principle set out in Williams v. The advertisement for reward issued by the defendant constituted an offer. The plaintiff. Issue Where a party accepts an offer of reward for motives other than the reward itself. Actio quanti minoris: An action in which the purchaser of a good claims a reduction of the price proportionate to the reduction in value caused by a defect. regardless of her motives. In Williams v Carwardine the court answered yes in situation where the offeree performed what was required by the offeror. 10 . The advertisement by Zhing Zhong to pay a reward of P25 000 appears to the person who found the advert and preformed unto it. Boitumelo has no right to claim a reward. Carwardine (1893). Basically. (Bloom V American Swiss Watch Company 1915) Unfortunately. (Heaviside v Jordan 1903) Lung sickness in cattle. accepted the offer. does an enforceable contract result? Ratio Acceptance of an offer constitutes a legally binding agreement. The defendant refused to give the plaintiff the reward claiming that she was induced to provide the information not by the reward itself. Facts An advertisement for reward was posted by the defendant for information leading to the arrest and conviction of a murder suspect. However in R v Clarke the court on the basis of the motive ruled performance did not amount to acceptance. but only to ease her conscience when she believed she was dying. in providing information that led to the conviction of the murderer. regardless of the motives for acceptance. The plaintiff sued for breach of contract. Held The Court held that the Plaintiff was entitled to the reward. to keep the goods while paying a price which represents what she would have paid.

There was a misrepresentation of cattle not having disease by Milton. or he or she can show that the buyer was aware of the latent defect. when the defect could have been discovered by the buyer by a thorough inspection (a "patent defect"). iv) If.ii) Advise Mr Brian of his legal rights Brian has right to claim a reduced price or cancel the sale completely. In this case 11 . If the seller can prove genuine innocence. However. would your advice be different? If so how/why not? The court will give no remedy to the purchaser who discovered a latent defect unless the seller had granted an express warranty against such. the buyer cannot possibly succeed in a claim against the seller unless the seller actively took steps to hide the defect from a normal inspection. the case may be decided in favor of the seller. however. and Brian proceeded to pay the purchase price. Milton had told Brian on the actual status of his cattle. Milton did not tell him the truth.

5. There must be two parties There must be at least two parties. But a partner may sell goods to the firm or buy goods from the firm. So the subject matter of contract must be goods which can be movable. Good faith" can be defined as the duty to make an honest and sincere effort to fulfill obligations under the contract. Subject matter of Sale must be "goods" The subject matter of contract of sale must be movable goods. When the goods are pledged. There can be no fraud or intentional seeking of unfair advantage. it is only the special property which is transferred i. one buyer and the other seller. For example Shyam is the owner of certain goods. Ltd.e. A person cannot buy his own goods. possession of the goods is transferred to the pledgee while the ownership rights remain with the pledger.) There is exemption in the case of a part owner. the buyer only has a personal right in respect of the seller to enforce the delivery of the article. This law has the purpose of promoting the protection of customers and thereby contributing to the sound development of the national economy by prescribing the matters those product providers should explain to customers in the sale It should also be noted that there is a duty of "good faith" in sale of goods. It is a specific type of legal contract. Contracts relating to services are also not treated as contract of sale. 12 . They cannot be both seller and buyer. Since the goods already belong to Shyam. 3. Where parties do not stipulate a fixed purchase price but agree that the buyer will pay a reasonable price the contract will probably be regarded as invalid since purchase price cannot be easily ascertained. 4. Ram pretends to be the owner of the goods and sells them to Shyam. The general property is transferred from seller to the buyer in a contract of sale. services or property to be exchanged from seller (or vendor) to buyer (or purchaser) for an agreed upon value in money (or money equivalent) paid or the promise to pay same. but he is not aware of this fact. The purchase price it must be a fixed or easily ascertainable sum of money. Property means the general property in the goods and not merely a special property. a part owner can sell his ownership to another part owner. i. Sale and purchase of immovable property is regulated by the Transfer of Property Act. Transfer of property in the goods: It is the ownership that is transferred in a Contract of sale. Elements for the contract of sale 1. Lever Bros. The buyer cannot acquire a real right of the article (that is ownership until delivery has taken place. 2. Delivery of the article: Until the article has been delivered to the buyer. he cannot buy his own goods.. partners are not regarded as separate persons.e. (Bell vs. However. For the purpose of sale of partnership property.QUESTION 4 Law of sale: A contract of sale is a legal contract an exchange of goods. hence there is no sale and the contract is not valid.

acceptance can be revoked. and the transfer of risk operates differently depending on which party breaches. Usually a price will be expressly fixed in a contract for the sale of goods. For example.O. Revocation allows the buyer to pass the risk of loss back to the seller. Accepting the delivery of the goods sold: one of the fundamental duties between a buyer and seller in a contract for the sale of goods is that the seller has a duty to deliver the goods and the buyer has a duty to accept the goods in accordance with the terms of the contract. a buyer orders blue widgets from a seller. Rights and duties of the seller * Before sale y To disclose material defects in the property or title y To produce the title-deeds for inspection y To answer relevant questions as to title y To execute conveyance y To take care of the property and title deeds y To pay the outgoings * After sale y To give possession to the buyer y To covenant for title y To deliver title deeds on receipt of the price Risk of Loss when a Sales Contract is breached There are many ways to breach a sales contract. The risk of loss falls on the seller. the risk of loss does not pass to the buyer until the defects are cured (that is.B. seller's plant. In the unusual case of no such price being stated then the Sale of Goods Act 1979 further suggests that in this instance a price must be µreasonable¶ and the payment should be due in cash at the seller¶s residence. F. the risk would have fallen on the buyer. The seller ships black widgets instead. Paying the purchase price: It is the buyer¶s duty to pay the price in accordance with the terms of the contract. 13 . The black widgets (nonconforming goods) are damaged in transit. If a buyer accepts a shipment of goods and later discovers a defect. the party in breach bears the risk of loss When the Seller Breaches If the goods are so nonconforming that the buyer has the right to reject them. Generally.Rights and duties of the buyer 1. or discounted in price by the seller) or until the buyer accepts the goods in spite of their defects (thus waiving the right to reject). until the goods are repaired. at least to the extent that the buyer's insurance does not cover the loss. Had the seller shipped blue widgets (conforming goods) instead. replaced. 2.

A contract is usually a concrete document. A gross lease is when the tenant pays a flat rental amount and the landlord pays for all property charges regularly incurred by the ownership from lawnmowers and washing machines to handbags and jewelry. but with different provisions). The buyer is liable only to the extent of any deficiency in the seller's insurance coverage.When the Buyer Breaches The general rule is that when a buyer breaches a contract. or use of a radio frequency (such as a contract with a cellphone provider). The seller must already have identified the contract goods. Duties of land lord Seller¶s Duty to Disclose Defects 14 . The buyer bears the risk for only a commercially reasonable time after the seller has learned of the breach. It is therefore vital for managers of company to be aware of contract law and learn business especially in breach of contract Contract lawyers can ensure that all details and stipulations in the contract are met. There are three important limitations to this rule: 1. It seeks to regulate voluntary legal regulations between people with respect to contracts and agreements. A simple example of a contract implied by acts of the parties is when you¶re required to pay the dentist for the services you received during a regular dental checkup. the risk of loss immediately shifts to the buyer. The law of contract is very important in business as well as in day-to-day life. but it may also be oral or implied by the acts of the parties. specifically under the law of obligations. It is a contract calling for the lessee (user) to pay the lessor (owner) for use of an asset. Contract law ensures that all agreements between the business and other parties are legal. to name a few. On "termination" all obligations which are still executory on both sides are discharged but any right based on prior breach or performance survives. It governs most commercial transactions: sale and carriage of goods. Contract law is necessary for any business to run effectively. Leases for intangible property could include use of a computer program (similar to a license. 2. rental agreements and employment. hire purchase. The importance of contract of sale to soft drink business: Contract law: Contract law deals with the exchange of legally-binding agreements and documents between two or more parties. Law of lease: The lease is a legal binding contract. Termination: Occurs when either party pursuant to a power created by agreement or law puts an end to the contract otherwise than for its breach. insurance. A rental agreement is a lease in which the asset is tangible property. It falls under private law in the civil law system. 3.

The doctrine refers to the fact that within the hierarchical structure of Botswana courts a decision of the high court will be binding on courts lower than it in that hierarchy. Magistrate courts do not make precedent. If the precedent was set by a court of equal or highest status to court deciding the new cases. the tenant may claim specific performance. The court of appeal is not bound by its previous judgment but will normally follow them in the interest of certainty. unless the decision of the superior courts is based on obvious errors such as failure to into account a statutory provision that hardly be any difference on the matter. Where the land lord is in breach of the duty to deliver. Nevertheless a high court judge will not depart from the decision of another high court judge. When judges try cases they will check to see if a similar situation has come before a court previously. In general one magistrate does not necessarily follow the judgment of another magistrate if for no other reason than that the judgments of magistrate courts are not reported. If the land lord¶s failure to maintain the premises constitutes a serious breach of the contract the tenant will be entitled to cancel the lease and vacate the premises. They are bound by the judges of court of appeal and high court. 15 . then the judges in the present case should follow the rule of law established in the earlier case. Delivering the leased premises to tenant: it is the duty of the landlord to deliver the tenant the use and occupation of the leased premises. the seller of real property had no duty to disclose hidden or latent defects to the buyer. absent a fiduciary duty or other special circumstances. A buyer could recover only when the seller intentionally misrepresented facts about the property or physically concealed known defects. Property must be in a proper state of repair both internally and externally. The high court is not bound to follow its earlier decisions.Traditionally. thereby compelling the landlord to deliver the premises Placing the leased premises in a proper state of repair. The Botswana court is bound by the decision of the Court of Appeal. if it is convinced it was wrong (Morgan Moalthodi v Kgabjwana Mekgwe) The high court judge is not bound to follow the decision of another high court judge. A bench of two judges is bound by a decision of the full bench and a single bench by the decision of a bench constituted in either of the two ways mentioned above. Question 3 D Precedent: The doctrine of binding precedent or stare decisis lies at the heart of Botswana legal system. Maintaining the leased premises in a proper state of repair: Make all repairs and do whatever is necessary to put and keep the rental premises in a fit and habitable condition. The hierarchy of the court: Every court is bound by the decisions of the superior courts within its area of jurisdiction.
