Last week Monday, the number of active cases stood at 362. The city’s spokesperson, Sipho Stuurman, says new confirmed daily cases have also increased exponentially from below 50 to above 300:

# Political analyst Daniel Silke says the DA’s mayoral wins in the City of Johannesburg and Ekurhuleni and possibly Tshwane today, provide a tough governing backdrop. The DA’s Mpho Phalatse is now in charge of Johannesburg and the party’s Tania Campbell of Ekurhuleni. Silke says the DA desperately needs to grasp the moment in a unique window of cross-party support to provide real service delivery and create a viable non-ANC alternative:

Silke says the co-operation now of opposition political parties will make or break a more united approach to tackling the ANC in the 2024 national elections:

# The mega Limpopo fruit producer ZZ2 says they have reached their mark of harvesting 90-percent of their cherry harvest this week. A spokesperson, Philé van Zyl, thanked all involved in the process of growing, harvesting, packing, and supplying local and international customers. The cherries will be locally available at 17 fresh produce markets in all nine provinces, with the newest market being in the Eastern Cape. There are about 30 production units of cherries in South Africa.

# Rugby: A limited number of tickets will be available from tomorrow for the United Rugby Championship encounter between the Bulls and Irish side Munster at Loftus Versfeld in Tshwane on Saturday. There was a hive of activity when the Bulls returned to some form of normality with a limited number of spectators during the recent Champions Match. The Bulls’ spokesperson Chumani Bambani says they are currently restricted to accommodate only two-thousand spectators per match.

# Financial indicators: The dollar is trading at 15-rand-88-cents and the euro at 17-rand-89-cents. One British pound costs 21-rand-24-cents and Bitcoin trades at 56-thousand-227-dollars-3-cents. Gold is selling at one thousand-801-dollars-45-cents a fine ounce and Brent crude oil is quoted at 78-dollars-82-cents a barrel.

# And finally: The search is still on for the second winner who bagged the PowerBall Plus jackpot of 50-million-rand. The ticket was purchased in Groblersdal, Limpopo, opting for the quick pick selection method. Ithuba’s Charmaine Mabuza says they have found the first winner and welcomed him to the millionaire’s circle. He is a 72-years-old pensioner from Kwazulu-Natal who has been playing the Lotto for 14 years. He has bagged 100-million-rand from the draw that took place last week Tuesday.
