Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta says that his and other parties on the continent have a lot to learn from the 106- year-old African National Congress.

Kenyatta was speaking following a meeting between him and ANC president Cyril Ramaphosa in East London.

Kenyatta whose country has been embroiled in political turmoil since its presidential elections last year is in South Africa to attend the January 8 Statement of the ANC on Saturday.

“I did mention and congratulated him on the unity message that he has sent out to bring people together, retracing the footprints and the footsteps of those that have gone before him… with a clear mission and idea of reminding people of the path the ANC has travelled, and the need for unity within the party – I think that is a message that resonates well not just with South Africans, but also with us, and our political parties in the rest of Africa.”
