"Officially an Admitted Attorney and Notary of the High Court of South Africa, a dream that God made possible." – Boitumelo Lebeko, BA Law (University of Pretoria)."
A Notary of the High Court of South Africa, or Notary Public, is an attorney admitted and authorised by the High Court to witness signatures, draw and attest contracts and statements, and authenticate the validity of certain documents.
This form of attorney would have passed the practical examination, or in the case of Lebeko, a notary exam, concerning the practice, functions and duties of a notary.
An admitted attorney who has passed the practical notarial examination may, on application to the High Court, be admitted and enrolled as a Notary Public.
