President Cyril Ramaphosa took to the streets of Cape Town in the early hours of Tuesday morning to promote a healthy lifestyle, encouraging people to join him for daily morning walks.

The 5km walk from Gugulethu Sports Complex to the Athlone Stadium was a way for the president to promote healthy living.

I want my tummy to fall so I will continue to walk.

"Runnerphosa" was joined by a few hundred people who showed up in support. He said being active was the best form of living healthily. "I want my tummy to fall so I will continue to walk," he quipped.

Ramaphosa, who was also joined by media, was asked about the expected Cabinet shuffle, but he responded: "This is the time to walk, to reflect... about Cabinet and all that. So, this gives me time to reflect as well."

Last week Ramaphosa was spotted in Cape Town in the early hours of the morning running along the promenade with former finance minister Trevor Manuel.
