Since this proclamation was published, Sections 54 and 55 came into operation on 1 August 2001 by proclamation in Government Gazette 22544 of 1 August 2001 (see Government Notice R39 of 2001) and Section 90 was repealed by Government Gazette 19971 of 28 April 1999, Act 21 of 1999 with effect from 20 November 2010 (See Government Notice R61 of 2010).
