PRETORIA - More than 30,000 people including world leaders, were expected to descend on Loftus Stadium on Saturday morning, for President Cyril Ramaphosa's inauguration. 

The president's swearing-in ceremony was bigger and cheaper than previous such events, as it moved from the Union Buildings to the rugby stadium.

Inauguration costs ballooned from R75-million in 1999 to R120-million in 2014.

Dozens of roads were closed and residents needed permits to get in and out of certain areas.
