Cape Town - President Cyril Ramaphosa and about 200 others started an early morning walk from the Gugulethu sports ground to Athlone Stadium promptly at 5.30am on Tuesday after a warm-up.
Ramaphosa's invitation to Cape Town residents to join him for the walk was well-received with running clubs, local media personalities, ANC members and eager residents joining him for the 5km walk.
The newly-elected president made waves last week when he was captured walking along the Sea Point Promenade with former finance minister Trevor Manuel on Thursday morning. Last month, lucky beachgoers spotted Ramaphosa, then deputy president, walking along an East London beachfront.
ANC Western Cape secretary Faiez Jacobs said the mood was jovial on Tuesday morning with many residents coming out to see the president.
