Johannesburg - President Jacob Zuma was rested and would resume public engagements next week, the presidency said on Saturday.

Spokesperson Mac Marahaj referred to a statement issued by the presidency on Friday.

"The president has been working from home and his first public engagement will be the State of the Nation address in Parliament on Tuesday," he said in the statement.

Zuma would then attend the State of the Nation debate on Wednesday and Thursday and respond to the debate on Friday.

Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa would address The New Age/SABC business breakfast session on Wednesday, while ministers and deputy ministers would also participate in media interviews in various languages in order to unpack the State of the Nation for the public, Maharaj said.
