“A new era has downed in our country. A brighter day is rising upon Soun Africa”, he stressed during his inaugural speech. ” This is a defining moment for a young nation like ours. It is time for us to make the future that we yearn for”. “I pledge here today that i will serve…to build the South Africa that we all want and deserve”.

Jacob Zuma was the only ex-president absent, because he had attended a court hearing based on charges of corruption in the sounthern city of Pieter Maritzburg. He later told reporters and his followers that he was too busy to travel to Pretoria for the newly elected president’s inauguration. “There is no time, i am fighting to stay out of jail” he said.
Over 3000 police officers were deployed for the event to ensure safety of the participants and joyous countrymen, while the soldiers were in charge of ceremonial parades.
Meanwhile, the opposition party (DA) Democratic Alliance critisized the government for being “wasteful” on the amount spent on the ceremony, accruing to over 120 million rand. “It is no secret that the south African economy is in dire straits” senior DA lawmaker John Steenhuisen stated.Cyril Ramaphosa
