Lungu inauguration set for next Tuesday
PRESIDENT–elect Edgar Lungu and his running mate Inonge Wina will be inaugurated on Tuesday next week following the Constitutional Court ruling which threw out the UPND petition which was seeking the nullification of the re-election of the Head of State.
Secretary to Cabinet Roland Msiska announced in a statement yesterday that following the dismissal of the UPND petition by the Constitutional Court, the swearing-in of the President-elect would go ahead according to the constitutional schedule.
Dr Msiska said the inauguration ceremony would be held at the National Heroes Stadium in Lusaka and that all the committees involved in the preparation of the event had been activated accordingly.
Dr Msiska said Cabinet Office would therefore proceed to prepare for the inauguration of the President-elect and Vice President-elect next Tuesday.
