Judgment reserved in government's bid to appeal lockdown regulations ruling
Judgment has been reserved in the government's application for leave to appeal a Pretoria High Court ruling that found lockdown regulations under level four were irrational and invalid.
Government has argued that the matter should be tested in a higher court.
Eyewitness News reporter Theto Mahlakoana has more on the story.
