I am a permanent SA resident over 70 years old. I get a small UK state pension that is paid into a bank account in the UK where it accrues. Can I transfer an amount, say 2000 pounds sterling, to a bank account here without paying SA tax?

Yes you can do this without any tax consequences as foreign pensions are not taxable in SA.
