President Cyril Ramaphosa says walking early in the morning gives him a chance to reflect on the previous day's events.
Speaking to reporters after walking 6km with dozens of Cape Flats residents on Tuesday morning, the president said it's also a chance to plan for the day's issues.
In addition, walking also helps him keep fit and lead a healthy lifestyle.
This walk, for me, is invigorating. It starts off my day very positively. I have positive thoughts in my head.
I use the walk to think through the issues that happened yesterday and the issues that we'd be dealing with the following day.
The president added:
So it's a moment of reflection [and] also a moment of meditation. It's also a moment of trying to get fit and leading a healthy lifestyle.
When a reporter asked him if he thought about changes to the Cabinet, Ramaphosa joked that indeed he thought about it.
He confirmed that he would seek to walk about three times a week with local residents, depending on where he is.
