"@CyrilRamaphosa you said you wouldn’t allow retailers to hike up prices, what’s going on?
"Have you seen the price for eucalyptus oil... You would swear you are buying anointed oil."
"Have you seen the price ya Vicks Vaporub? You would swear it's the actual vaccine."
"Spar Glenwood is selling ginger for R349/kg."
"Maybe Covid is also a lesson to have less paved and manicured grass in our homes and more gardens to plant our herbs and essentials."
