Officer 'Ramaps' treated unsuspecting Gauteng motorists to a surprise when they encountered the president on Saturday.
With the launch of October Transport Month, under the banner of 'Fixing Transport to Grow South Africa Together', Cyril Ramaphosa was hard at work engaging with citizens.
Minister Fikile Mbalula and Gauteng Premier David Makhura joined the president in kicking off efforts to make Mzansi's roads safer.
