Zuma set to be sworn in for second term

2014-05-24 07:32

Johannesburg - Jacob Zuma will be sworn in for his second term as president, at the Union Buildings in Pretoria on Saturday.

About 4 500 foreign and local dignitaries are expected to attend, including Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe and his wife Grace, Botswana's Ian Khama and Madagascar's Hery Rajaonarimampianina.

The pomp and ceremony will include an air force flypast and a 21-gun salute. The army band has been entertaining guests at the Nelson Mandela Amphitheatre from 05:00, while the "cultural programme", which is expected to include performances from Kurt Darren and DJ Vetkuk, starts at 08:00.

The formal ceremony begins at 11:00. Zuma will be sworn in by Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng, and is scheduled to announce his new Cabinet on Sunday.

The inauguration will be attended by heads of state and government, deputy heads, and former heads from 47 countries, but no one from the United Kingdom, Europe, or America.

Also in attendance will be Democratic Alliance leader Helen Zille and Economic Freedom Fighters MP Magdalene Moonsamy.

All EFF MPs have received invitations, but it is unclear if leader Julius Malema will attend.
