"We expect that there will be 32,000 people that will come to the stadium. The bulk from Gauteng."

Dlamini Zuma also confirmed that this inauguration will be a Loftus Versfeld Stadium instead of the Union buildings.

"The choice was determined by a number of factors, one the cost, preparing the amphitheater is more costly than hiring the stadium. The other reason is that there will be an inclusive program."
