The imbizo will be aired on TV, more than 80 community radio stations and social media from 18:00.

"The Presidential Imbizo is a public participation platform where communities are able to interact directly with government on challenges in society and where citizens are able to engage on community-generated solutions to such challenges," Ramaphosa's spokesperson, Khusela Diko, said in a statement.

Those who wish to ask Ramaphosa questions can call the toll free line 0800 142 446 or use the social media hashtag #PresidentialImbizo.

Ramaphosa's engagement with the public comes two weeks after he announced the easing of restrictions under Level 3 of the nationwide lockdown.

South Africa has recorded a total of 2 657 deaths as a result of Covid-19 complications.

On Tuesday evening, 6 945 new cases of Covid-19 were reported, with the cumulative number of confirmed cases in South Africa sitting at 151 209.

Ramaphosa previously told Parliament that no information related to Covid-19 was withheld from the public.

"I am one of those who say any information should be made public," Ramaphosa said.
