SAMSAites join Gauteng’s biggest walk for health, charity and awareness


Pretoria: 24 July 2017

As many as 40 employees of the South African Maritime Safety Authority (SAMSA) in Pretoria – known colloquially as SAMSAites – joined an estimated 53 000 other people for this year’s MTN/702 Radio Walk the Talk charity event in Johannesburg on Sunday.
