Rise in the Illicit Trade of Cigarettes During Lockdown Ban

By Mumtaz Moosa Saley

As we enter 50 days since the start of lockdown many cigarettes smokers have become innovative in finding their nicotine fix.

Most store owners will tell you how they're asked "make a plan, while some foreign store owners have put up posters stating that there is no plan to be made, so stop asking.

Within my own community, there have been a number of arrests of both store owners and customers who have broken the law. And the penalties are heavy! Many have acquired a criminal record and/or fined close to R50 000 and who are caught buying were processed and locked up with a possible criminal record and a R 5000- R10 000 fine.

Is it really worth it? read more

Country Puddle

A man traveling down a country road was forced to stop before a giant puddle covering the entire road. Looking to the side of the road, the man noticed a farmer leaning on a fence. "Think it's safe to cross?" the man asked.

"I reckon so," replied the farmer.

The car was immediately swallowed by the puddle as the man drove in. In fact, it was so deep that he had to roll his window down to swim out of his car back to the surface.

As his head broke the surface the man said to the farmer, "I thought you said I could safely drive through this puddle!"

"Well, golly!" said the farmer, scratching his head. "It only come up chest-high on my ducks!"
