What aircraft is ZS-CMJ?
Looks like it could be a recent addition to CemAir, on FR24 showing B1900D, but surely isn't.

Looks like this one has done a few flights to Vic Falls this week, coming up on FR24 as a “ground Vehicle” using a hex code which is supposed to be for a vehicle 22A440.

LIFT introduced a new special livery onto GAS

Image

Also, as an aside, the number of yellow tails vs. black tails is 3 to 2, which is very funny considering which design first won when LIFT was initially announced.

I think the Lift livery is genius.
black on yellow / yellow on black
It means all the airports contribute to the subliminal advertising :D

As per this recent FlySafair video, ZS-FGA is indeed painted in the new scheme.

ZS-SJR is in the new livery - unfortunately, unlike our Boks yesterday, without any Rugby titles anymore.

Airlink
As discussed here, Airlink is expecting their first Embraer ERJ-175. Additionally, E190s ZS-YZD and ZS-YZE have entered service.

LIFT
LY-LGA is back with LIFT again after a winter stint with FlyONE Armenia. I'm not sure about LGB and LGD, but they might fly down too.

The aircraft has actually arrived at JNB and is awaiting entry into service. As are 2 additional E190’s and 2 E195’s (ie all have been delivered and are undergoing maintenance checks and repaint etc before entering service)
