Kenyatta to attend ANC birthday celebrations

Kenyatta to attend ANC birthday celebrations

"During the talks this afternoon, President Kenyatta and President Zuma will seek to review the progress in the implementation of earlier signed agreements and explore new areas to deepen the fraternal ties between Kenya and South Africa", State House said.

A flight carrying the President left Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) moments before noon.

President Kenyatta also explained that he would "participate in the African National Congress (South Africa's ruling party) 106 birthday celebrations" on Saturday at East London's Buffalo City Stadium in the Eastern Cape.

During the trip, the Head of State is expected to hold discussions on boosting cooperation in trade, security and infrastructure development with his South African counterpart Jacob Zuma.

"We want to strengthen our relations, take them to a higher level", said Zuma, adding that Thursday's meeting was "absolutely important" as it gave both leaders time to come to conclusions on some issues before Kenyatta's next visit.

"It will enable us to create the jobs that our young people require", said Kenyatta. "I have had the opportunity to brief [president Zuma] on South Sudan and to discuss other issues", said Kenyatta.

Presidents Kenyatta and Zuma said the two countries' ruling parties - Jubilee and the ANC - would begin working together.

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

President Kenyatta will also meet the Johannesburg business community and Volkswagen South Africa CEO Thomas Schaefer, who set up a vehicle assembly plant in Kenya in December 2016.
