The president attended a fundraising dinner for the Adopt-a-School foundation at a Johannesburg hotel, after which one of the guests tested positive for Covid-19 on Tuesday.
According to acting presidency spokesperson Tyrone Seale, the event, which hosted 35 guests, adhered to "stringent" Covid-19 protocols.
