Johannesburg-Pan African Parliament (PAP) President, Chief Fortune Charumbira will be part of the invited dignitaries at the inauguration of South African President Cyril Ramaphosa which is set for Wednesday (tomorrow).

Ramaphosa’s re-election as President of South Africa is seen as a significant milestone in the country’s history, and Charumbira’s presence at the inauguration ceremony is a testament to the strong relations between South Africa and the rest of Africa he will be representing the continent’s legislative arm, which was established 20 years ago.

South African President-elect Cyril Ramaphosa is set to be sworn into office tomorrow for his second term as the neighbouring country’s leader.

According to an invitation letter in The Midweek Watch’s possession issued by the Inter-Ministerial Committee on South African Presidential Inauguration said Ramaphosa will be sworn in by Chief Justice Raymond Zondo.

“The inauguration of the president of the 7th Administration of South Africa will take place on Wednesday, 19th June 2024 at the Union Buildings, Pretoria in the City of Tshwane,” says the invitation letter.

The inauguration will be running under the theme, “30 years of Democracy, Partnership and Growth.”

“The theme brings into perspective to South Africans’ past and the road of progress that we have travelled since 1994 when Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela took his oath of office at the Union Buildings on May 10 as our first democratically-elected president,” reads part of the invitation letter.

The PAP, also known as the African Parliament, is the legislative body of the African Union created in 2004 and its main mandate is to play an oversight role and has advisory and consultative powers.
