President Cyril Ramaphosa started 2021 by spending time in Sea Point, where he was spotted taking a walk.
Twitter user @TheCapeTownGuy shared pictures of the President mingling and posing for photos with ordinary South Africans while still maintaining distancing and wearing a mask.

Social media users were quick to point out the irony, though, that Ramaphosa would not be able to go to the beach under the amended level 3 lockdown regulations he had introduced earlier in the week.
When I did it in kzn, also on the walkway a police officer told me I'm not allowed to, I'm not even allowed to look at the ocean

The President is known for exercising in public and often uses his walks as an opportunity to interact with citizens.
