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.

Ramaphosa said:

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.
