    Drivers license renewal

    Got a spot at Waltloo in Pretoria eventually. Waste of time. Stood in line for almost 5 hours then left as there was only one pay point operating and there is no control. People just jump the line and there is absolutely zero social distancing in the queues or waiting area inside nor any...

    Do you prefer using UberEATS or Mr D Food?

    Pro's and Cons for me are: App: Here Ubereats wins with their interface, better search function and ability to track the driver's GPS. Variety: Mr D takes this one in my area with a larger selection of restaurants than Ubereats (but this obviously depends on where you live). Payment Options...
