In recent weeks, many media articles have reflected negatively on the services at Master’s offices around the country, particular those in Johannesburg, Gqeberha and Cape Town.

Some of the articles concentrated on the current Special Investigating Unit (SIU) investigation into allegations of fraud and corruption against certain officials, but most focused on deceased estates administration, poor management and lack of service delivery by the Master’s offices.
