AFternoons there.  My friend has been living with and taking care of his daughter for around three years on his own without claiming or receiving any maintenace from the moter of his daughter.  However the mother buys clothes evry once in a while.  The past weekend she travelled to come see her daugter and they arranged for that only for her not to return the child.  She went back to the Eastern Cape with the child without consulting the father.  

the child is still in school and was in the fater's primary care.  What are the father's rights to his daughter in this regard?

the daughter is six years old.
