Can bags be checked through from LH to SA Airlink?

I'll be flying FRA-JNB on LH and then, on a separate ticket, JNB-BBK on SA Airlink. Can my bags be checked all the way through, so I don't have to go through immigration at JNB? I would normally assume yes, since LH and SA are both *A, but wasn't sure if this applies to SA Airlink as well.

LH should be able to tag your bag but won't be able to check you in. You then just go to the Airlink transfer counter (bypassing immigration) and they'll check you in (you'll need to show them the bag tags).
