Declaring other income to SARS

I am full time employed but I have earned additional income by lecturing a couple of hours during the year at a different employer. This employer did not deduct any PAYE. The employer has paid me according to the hours that I have invoiced them. Should I answer the question about whether I'm an Independent Contractor as "Yes"?

Yes please answer yes to the Independent Contractor question, then you would include the income and any other expenses related to the lecturing in that section. However if you have no expenses then rather answer the question asking about Other Income.
