Kings House says guests attending this afternoon’s swearing-in of Prime Minister, Andrew Holness are being reminded that vuvuzelas are banned from the ceremony.

A vuvuzela is a cheap, plastic horn that has become a feature of festive occasions and sporting events in Jamaica.

It originated in South Africa and became popular with the rest of the world after its use in every stadium, as that country hosted the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

Kings House says all persons with VIP stickers in red and blue, will be allowed access to the swearing in function from both the west and east gates of the property.

The ceremony is expected to begin at 4pm and last for two hours.

Mr. Holness led the JLP to victory in last Thursdays general elections.

After being sowrn in today, he will be conferred with the country’s second highest honour, the Order of the Nation, by Governor General, Sir Patrick Allen.

Meanwhile the Police have advised that while no traffic changes are contemplated for the duration of the ceremony, motorists should expect some delays in the vicinity of King’s House.
