And Nombuso Mdletshe (44) from Ntuzuma north of Durban said she wants to buy takkies.

She said takkies are very expensive and that’s why she woke up to go and stand in the long lines.

"I will buy takkies for my son and nephew. I hope I get the nice ones as well when I get inside as there are so many people ahead of me," she said.
