Pretoria- Chairperson of the African Union Commission, Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma, has arrived in the country for the inauguration of President–elect Jacob Zuma.

The ceremony, to be held at the Nelson Mandela Amphitheatre at the Union Buildings in Pretoria, will be presided over by the Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng. 

A substantial number of African Union Heads of State and Government, Vice Presidents/ Deputy Heads of State, Prime Ministers, former Heads of State and other international dignitaries have confirmed their attendance to grace the inauguration.

“The Chairperson of the African Union Commission will seize this opportunity to consult African leaders attending the ceremony on various pertinent challenges currently facing the continent, such as the deteriorating situation in Mali and Libya, and the continued terrorist attacks by Boko Haram in Nigeria, especially in securing the immediate and unconditional release of the kidnapped girls,” the AU said in a statement.

President-elect Zuma was re-elected President of South Africa on Wednesday by members of the National Assembly after the African National Congress won the 7 May General Elections.
