If I rented out my primary residence in JHB, while myself renting another property in CT (in lieu of my primary residence) for a period of 6 years, and then sold the primary residence in JHB to buy a primary residence in CT - am I liable for Capital Gains tax on the primary residence in JHB?

Yes you would be as this would no longer be your primary residence. SARS allows a 2 year grace period while you look for a new residence, otherwise it becomes subject to CGT.
