South African President Cyril Ramaphosa has tested positive for coronavirus amid the growing prevalence of the Omicron variant in the country.
It is not yet known if the 69-year-old is carrying the Omicron variant, which is believed to make up more than 70% of cases in the nation.
Mr Ramaphosa, who is fully vaccinated, took a COVID-19 test on Sunday after he started feeling unwell and is now self-isolating in Cape Town.
He has delegated his responsibilities to Deputy President David Mabuza for the next week.
Mr. Ramaphosa visited President Akufo-Addo in Ghana on an official visit for days which also saw him grace a grand durbar to climax activities marking the 50th Anniversary of Daasebre Otuo Serebuor II as Paramount Chief of Juaben.
President Cyril Ramaphosa also visited Senegal briefly after leaving Ghana.
