Public viewing areas for President-elect Jacob Zuma’s inauguration

THE inauguration of South Africa’s President-elect, Jacob Zuma, will take place at the Nelson Mandela Amphitheatre at the Union Buildings in Pretoria. Public viewing events have been arranged across the country so South Africans can watch the ceremony. Last year Zuma appointed an inter-ministerial committee to plan for the inauguration ceremony, to take place on 24 May 2014.

“We are satisfied with the progress made thus far. The logistical arrangements are proceeding well and we look forward to an exciting and successful inauguration ceremony,” said acting minister in the Presidency, Nathi Mthethwa.
