Some concessions have been granted by Ramaphosa, but there are still many things that are baffling. In the meantime, sit-down restaurants are set to open, we can finally go and get our hair cut, and we can even have a punt at a casino, if we had one near us, but still no cigarettes. Yep, gwaais are still banned.
