President Jacob Zuma is expected to fly to Accra on Sunday evening to attend the inauguration of John Dramani Mahama as president of Ghana, the presidency said.

Spokesman Mac Maharaj said the inauguration would happen on Monday and International Relations and Co-operation minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane would accompany Zuma.

Mahama's National Democratic Congress won the December elections with 50.7% of the votes.

"Relations between South Africa and Ghana are excellent," Maharaj said in a statement.

"Initially trade between the two countries concentrated on agricultural products, but since 2005 South Africa has begun to export value added manufactured capital goods to Ghana, reflecting the significant presence of SA multinationals in the Ghanaian economy."

During a private visit to South Africa late in December, Mahama met Zuma at his residence in Nkandla in KwaZulu-Natal.
