President Jacob Zuma will attend the inauguration of Angolan president-elect, João Manuel Lourenço in Luanda on Tuesday.

The Presidency points out that Angola and South Africa have strong commercial and historical ties.

Lourenco will take over from President Jose Eduardo dos Santos, who’s led Angola since 1979, after their People’s Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA) retained power in elections last month.

Science and Technology Minister Naledi Pandor will be acting President while Zuma is in Luanda and Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa is in London leading the South African delegation for the Rugby World Cup 2023 bid.
