President Jacob Zuma and his Kenyan counterpart, President Uhuru Kenyatta are holding bilateral talks at the President’s Dr. John Dube’s residence in Durban – a follow up of President Zuma’s visit to Kenya last year.
The two heads of states will among other things discuss cooperation in areas such as infrastructure development and inter-trade.
Kenya and South Africa are economic giants in their respective economic blocs. South Africa’s imports from Kenya include tobacco, textile fibres, tea, plastic products and copper. A number of South African pharmaceutical, banking, engineering and retail companies are already operating in Kenya.
President Kenyatta will be the chief guest during the main event, the ANC 106th anniversary in East London later this week.
This is Kenyatta’s first visit to South Africa since his election as Kenyan president in November last year.
