The prayers were for a peaceful inauguration, and blessings for Zuma.

Pretoria - President Jacob Zuma took his oath of office for a second term at around 11.35am at the Union Buildings in Pretoria on Saturday.

He was led by Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng.

“In the presence of everyone assembled here and in full realisation of the high calling I assume as president of the Republic of South Africa, I Jacob Gedleyihlekisa Zuma swear that I will be faithful to the Republic of South Africa and will obey, observe, uphold, and maintain the Constitution and all other law(s) of the republic...” he said.

“I solemnly and sincerely promise that I will always promote all that will advance the Republic and oppose all that may harm it.”

There was a loud cheer after Zuma said “so help me God”.

Mogoeng then asked Zuma to sign a certificate while placing his hand on a Bible.

Mogoeng then congratulate him. - Sapa
