South African president Jacob Zuma has said he is taking a rest for a few days to recover from the demands of a recent election campaign and shaping his new administration.
The president's office said the 72-year-old will take a break from public engagements but will work from home.
Mr Zuma has begun a second five-year term following the election victory last month of the ruling African National Congress party, which has dominated politics in South Africa since the end of white rule in 1994.
