Baggage rules at JNB

Does anyone know if this is still applicable at JNB please as planning a trip for next year. Have read elsewhere that this was just a trial but can't find anything definitive about what is allowed now.

Irregular shaped bags at OR Tambo

Many thanks

During a trip late last year (2019) IAD-JNB-CPT-JNB-IAD we traveled with several (approx. 6) "regular" bags that we, in substance, rolling luggage of various sizes and at least two "irregular" bags. The "irregular" bags were large duffel bags with standard handles (in the middle of the bag). We did not have the long end-to-end shoulder straps attached to the outside of the bag. No issues, complaints or worries from any JNB (or IAD or CPT for that matter) staff either on the airline's part (SAA) or the airports part. Nobody said a thing about it. PS. We did not cling film "wrap" any of our luggage for any leg of the trip.
