Khumalo shares his experience.

The first day was the toughest but over the next three or four days, the body has acclimatised and thankfully the weather has also been very kind.

Asked whether he will be on time for the book launch of his novel The Longest March in Durban on 17 October, Khumalo says he definitely will.

I have only one day to go before I finish the march. From Ladysmith I get in a car, so I will definitely make my launch.
