President Cyril Ramaphosa is no stranger to jogging in the morning.

CAPE TOWN - President Cyril Ramaphosa has time to watch his fitness ahead of a tense day in Parliament.

He was joined on a 6km walk by Cape Town residents on Tuesday morning.

Ramaphosa said "many wonderful people" joined him on the walk.

He joked that MkhabaMustFall (aka belly fat). 

Ramaphosa said his morning jog is a moment of meditation but most of all it&39;s about leading a healthy lifestyle.

"This walk for me is invigorating. I use the walk to think through issues," he said.

"I want to encourage South Africans to start walking."

Just last week he was spotted jogging along Cape Town’s promenade with former Finance Minister Trevor Manuel.

And in January, ahead of the NEC meeting, he was spotted in East London sporting funky socks.
