I have dual citizenship. I have resided in the UK for the last 5 years with my children. Income from living annuity is being limited to 3%. I plan to sell my shares over 8 years and remit the proceeds together with the annuity to cover my living expenses and then increase my annuity to cover future shortfalls on my living expenses. I am 75 years old. My intention is to keep my taxable income below the tax threshold. I pay 15% WHT on dividends. I earn no income from any other source in South Africa or the UK. My taxable income converted to is below the personal allowance. I do not wish to officially emigrate to avoid paying capital gains tax in one go.

Non-residents for tax purposes do not pay CGT on assets other than those related to immovable property such as a house or shares of a property company so your plan would be better than formally emigrating at this point.
