Cape Town - In a bid to promote healthy living, Cape Town residents have been invited to join President Cyril Ramaphosa for daily morning walks.
The morning exercise will see Ramaphosa walk from the Gugulethu sports ground to Athlone Stadium from February 20, 2018.
The daily walks will begin at 5.30am.
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.

"It was a surreal moment," Sea Point resident Greer Blizzard said. "I said 'This is a big moment in our history Mr Ramaphosa' and he smiled and nodded.
Last month, lucky beachgoers spotted Ramaphosa, then deputy president, walking along an East London beachfront.
Ramaphosa was elected in Parliament on Thursday by Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng.
He takes over to finish off former President Jacob Zuma's term following his resignation on Wednesday night.
