Today marks day 21 of the national lockdown. Had it not been extended, life would have resumed to as normal as can be in the time of a global pandemic.

Minister of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma announced today that lockdown regulations will slacken somewhat to ensure there is no ‘floodgate’ effect once the period comes to a close.

Last night, Cape Town was treated to some of the most breathtaking sunsets we have had since the start of lockdown. This morning’s sunrise was just as spectacular.
