Hand Baggage weighing at check-in with SSA and Mango

The most restrictive weight for handbags among SAA, Mango or SA Express is 7 kg/15 lbs, which is nothing when the bag such as our light weight SwissGear itself starts at a little over 6 lbs. After reading the negative reviews regarding luggage security at Johannesburg, I test packed everything valuable and quickly got up to a little over 20 pounds although the dimensions were ‘legal’ for carry on.

Do any or all of the above mentioned airlines weigh carry on bags at check in or at the departure gate that clearly have legal dimensions?
