Possibly Hypoxis hygrometrica. Do you have a shot of the leaves?

The anther shape suggests this is subsp. villosisepala. However the outside of the sepal in the second photo does not look hairy. You have got out of the habit of photographing the whole plant and the leaves, which are often important diagnostics. Subsp. villosisepala usually has paired flowers.

These photos were to record plants continuing to flower here in spit of the dry conditions. Paired flowers and 'sparsely hairy' sepals. Previously identified as villosisepala which is more common than previously thought.
