President Kenyatta visits South Africa to shore up bilateral ties

Wetang'ula 'Recognizes' Uhuru Kenyatta As President

President Uhuru Kenyatta arrived in Durban, South Africa, Thursday for a three-day official visit and held bilateral talks with his host President Jacob Zuma.

Kenyatta said they also discussed how they can increase trade between the two countries and connectivity on the African continent which is critical to industrial development.

"Industrialisation is key to creating job opportunities for the youth and wealth for our nations and peoples", President Kenyatta said.

Kenyatta's discussion with Zuma will focus on bridging the balance of trade which is now highly in favor of South Africa.

"This is a working visit for President Kenyatta, he has just come to have some consultations, of course, we do this as part of looking forward to the state visit that is going to be made by the President in the first half of this year". "I have had the opportunity to brief [president Zuma] on South Sudan and to discuss other issues", said Kenyatta.

On the agreed visit, President Kenyatta said: "We have laid the groundwork for my State visit sometime in the first quarter of this year".

The two heads of states are expected to review bilateral agreements the two countries signed in Nairobi in 2016.

President Kenyatta will also meet Deputy President and President of the ANC Cyril Ramaphosa. "We want to see how political parties in Africa can cooperate", said President Kenyatta.

South African shares firmed on Friday, supported by resources stocks lifted by better than expected Chinese trade data, while the rand slipped in cautious trading ahead of a weekend speech by the leader of the ruling African National Congress party.

President Uhuru Kenyatta addresses a joint press briefing with his South African host President Jacob Zuma on January 11, 2018.
