  • Cogta Minister Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma roundly failed to convince the Supreme Court of Appeal that a pandemic-linked attempt to stop people smoking had made any sense.
  • Dlamini Zuma and President Cyril Ramaphosa on Tuesday won only costs against them in their effort to overturn an earlier high court victory for British American Tobacco on the lockdown cigarette ban. ''The court's strongest language was reserved for Dlamini Zuma's argument that up to 15% of smokers had quit during the ban because they could not afford the more expensive black market cigarettes that everyone else had turned to.
    Saying the ban "was effective because most smokers would have contravened the law, but a small minority of them would not have been able to afford the prices of illicit cigarettes, is constitutionally perverse – it relies on unlawful conduct (the sale of illegal cigarettes at a premium) in order to achieve the intended outcome (a reduction in smoking)," the court said.
  • The court found "constitutionally perverse" the minister's argument that expensive black market cigarettes had been a good thing.

So no repercussions for acts of negligent or perverse stupidity… no surprise.

I'd be very concerned if I was Takealot. I love their site and buy from them often, but Amazon puts in reach overseas items which I have wanted before but could never get due to the insane shipping costs.

I'm confused.....what did I miss? Why is everyone using this line about the wheels of kindness......?:confundio:

@TonySC Everyone? No ... I think it's just me! It's my "signature" and it's appears automatically when I post.
And the meaning thereof? Well, sometimes someone gives us something or shows kindness in some way or another, so we should do the same - not necessarily to the same person - it could be to someone else. In that way, we keep the wheel of kindness turning ...

Some strange spacing made me read it as part of the post rather than the signature

THE FIRST SNOWFALL IS EXPECTED AROUND MIDDAY​

The SA Weather Services (SAWS) said the first snowfall is expected to make landfall around midday on Thursday and continue until Friday.

“The first cut-off low is expected to pass over the eastern parts of the Eastern Cape, resulting in a chance of showers and thundershowers as it moves through.
“The upper-air system is expected to significantly drop to freezing levels, therefore resulting in a chance of snowfall over the north-eastern high ground.”
SAWS

LEVEL 5 WARNING FOR DISRUPTIVE RAIN EXPECTED FOR REST OF EC​

“Postpone travel arrangements until it is safer to travel. Avoid crossing rivers and swollen streams. Monitor the weather conditions and, if need be, identify areas to safely store valuable items from floodwater.”

We're South Africans dammit ... turn OFF that generator and or UPS this evening, and get the ol' braai out, along with a couple of bottles of the good stuff, an' make yourself comfortable. Do what we did back in ye olde days ... we chatted, ate too much, chatted, drank too much, and we chatted some more ;) ... O ... and keep a roll of duct tape handy for various erm ... "emergencies" too :rolleyes:
