Local media reports this week had it that the inauguration ceremony and coinciding 25th Independence celebration will have a combined cost of some N.dollars 20 million.

Such reports indicated that the inauguration ceremony will be held at the Independence Stadium, while a private party is expected to be held at the Ramatex complex in Windhoek’s Otjomuise area for more than 3 000 guests.
