Meanwhile, President Cyril Ramaphosa was confronted by a query over the cigarette ban right at the beginning of the Presidential Imbizo.
Ramaphosa had held a short address before accepting questions from the public on the Covid-19 pandemic in SA.
The very first caller had demanded answers over the tobacco ban, saying that he was struggling to get his hands on cigarettes.
Ramaphosa assured the South African that the ban on cigarette sales would eventually be lifted:
"We will not be in lockdown forever, so the ban on cigarettes will be lifted."
The president did point out that the ban was still in full effect and should be treated as such, repeating that the prohibition would end:
"Cigarettes are not banned forever in our country. The ban will be lifted."
The prohibition has been subjected to numerous legal tests with none emerging successful thus far.
