Secretary to the Cabinet Roland Msiska said in a statement that the ceremony will start at 10:00 hours to be followed by a luncheon to be hosted at State House at 14:00 hours.
“All dignitaries to the inauguration ceremony and the State luncheon should hold their invitations which were prepared for yesterday Saturday January 24 as valid,” Dr Msiska said.
He said access by dignitaries to the National Heroes Stadium will be by invitation while designated wings on the eastern, southern and northern parts of the stadium will be open to the public without invitations.
