“What is more painful is that I do not have a place where I can rest. We only rest or exercise inside the car [driven by his assistant],” he told PhalaPhala FM.

“I do 60km a day until I complete this 15-day journey to reach the Musina border gate. I do face challenges from time to time especially when I ride in mountains. So it forces me to reduce the speed per day,” explained Ramadwa.
