Walking the talk … Promoting a healthy lifestyle, President Cyril Ramaphosa set out on a morning walk from Lookout Hill in Khayelitsha to Rocklands civic centre in Mitchell’s Plain this morning, Wednesday March 7 at 5am. On the eve of his Khayelitsha to Mitchell’s Plain walk, the president tweeted on his Twitter account @CyrilRamaphosa: “As I walk I keep talking to our people, getting to know them, sharing their thoughts, their concerns, their aspirations … this for me is a great moment just to engage with ordinary people …” The president also used the opportunity to urge all South Africans to go to voting stations this weekend to register to vote in the next general election and importantly, to check that their details are captured correctly on the voters’ roll. The president concluded his morning walk at the United Democratic Front (UDF) monument outside the Rocklands civic centre where the UDF, an umbrella body of anti-apartheid organisations, was launched on August 20 1983.
