South African President Cyril Ramaphosa was officially sworn in for a second term today, Wednesday, after Parliament re-elected him last Friday.

Ramaphosa, the seventh democratically elected president, affirmed during the swearing-in ceremony that he would be “loyal to the Republic of South Africa.”

It should be noted that Chief Justice Raymond Zondo presided over the swearing-in ceremony at a ceremony attended by several heads of state and government in the capital, Pretoria.

Last Friday, members of the South African Parliament re-elected Cyril Ramaphosa as president for a second term during the first session of the legislature.

Ramaphosa, leader of the African National Congress, received 283 votes, defeating Julius Malema of the Economic Freedom Fighters party, who received 44 votes.

The African National Congress reached an agreement to form a national unity government with a number of parties, most notably the “Democratic Alliance”, the “National Alliance”, the “Inkatha” Freedom Party and others.
