Section 14 of the 1996Constitution of the Republic of South Africaprovides for an express, justiciable right to privacy. It states:
“Everyone has the right to privacy, which includes the right not to have –
This superseded section 13 of the interim Constitution of the Republic of South Africa Act 200 of 1993 (“the interim Constitution”), which was framed in largely the same terms.
Section 10 of the Constitution also contains a right to human dignity: “Everyone has inherent dignity and the right to have their dignity respected and protected.”
The Constitution is the supreme law in South Africa (section 2), and the state is required to respect, protect, promote and fulfil the rights in the Bill of Rights (section 7(2)). It is binding on both state and non-state actors (section 8). All rights in the Bill of Rights can be limited by a law of general application, to the extent that the limitation is reasonable and justifiable in an open and democratic society (section 36). Certain statutes also compel organs of the state or other parties to protect private information obtained from the public, such as the National Health Act 61 of 2003; the National Credit Act 34 of 2005; the Consumer Protection Act 68 of 2008; the Electronic Communication and Transactions Act 25 of 2002; and the Promotion of Access to Information Act 2 of 2000.
