JOHANNESBURG - The Presidency has confirmed that Water and Sanitation Minister Nomvula Mokonyane will represent President Jacob Zuma at the inauguration ceremony of the president-elect of the Republic of Liberia.

The inauguration of President George Weah is set to take place on Monday.

The Presidency says Liberia and South Africa share strong economic and trade relations.

Outgoing president Ellen Johnson Sirleaf leaves after serving two terms as Africa’s first elected female head of state.

The Presidency's spokesperson Bongani Ngqulunga says: “President Jacob Zuma has remarked that the peaceful and democratic manner under which the elections in Liberia were conducted signified yet another positive step towards deepening democracy on the African continent.”
