The strengthening of political and economic relations between South Africa and Kenya is set to dominate talks between President Cyril Ramaphosa and his Kenyan counterpart Uhuru Kenyatta later on Tuesday morning.

Ramaphosa is hosting Kenyatta on a two day state visit which starts on Tuesday and ends on Wednesday.

Both leaders are also expected to sign three memoranda of understanding and address business leaders from both countries.

Relations between SA and Kenya were established in the early 1990s with country’s democratisation.

The two sister republics will again cement their ties during Kenyatta’s visit.

Researcher on Good Governance and Sustainable Development at the University of Johannesburg, Salome Deleila says the visit is win-win for both countries.

Kenyatta will also visit the Transnet Engineering plant in Koedoespoort as well as Aspen Pharmacare in Gqeberha.
