AUSTRALIAN High Commissioner to South Africa Adam McCarthy has joined countryman Matt Napier for part of his long journey to help end world poverty by walking 2 250km across southern Africa.
Napier began the final leg of his trek with McCarthy, from Pretoria to Maputo, to celebrate International Nelson Mandela Day yesterday.
Napier's mission has been to raise awareness of the importance of reducing poverty around the world through sustainable development.
Part of the Walk to a Better World campaign, his journey has seen him travelling through Namibia, Botswana, South Africa and Mozambique.
He began his walk on June 4 in Walvis Bay in Namibia and travelled through the Kalahari Desert in Botswana. He is now in South Africa and heading towards the finish line in Maputo on August 3.
