Another one - it is either a
Broad-bordered Grass Yellow (Euramia brigitta brigitta)

or Lowveld Grass Yellow (Eurema hecabe solifera) - my current ID.

I agree with your current ID - Eurema hecabe solifera. Very easily distinguished from the other members of this genus by the irregular (not smoothly rounded) inner edge of the brown border on the forewing. Underside markings typical of this species.
