President Jacob Zuma will host his Kenyan counterpart Uhuru Kenyatta in Durban on Thursday. This is Kenyatta’s first working visit to South Africa since his inauguration on 28 November 2017.

South Africa and Kenya enjoy warm bilateral relations underpinned by strong historical and political bonds.

“South Africa is a strategic partner of Kenya in many areas, particularly trade and security. Numerous South African companies have a presence in Kenya. They operate in sectors such as banking, insurance, accountancy, pharmaceuticals, retail, tourism and engineering.

The two heads of states will also share perspectives on various issues of mutual importance, such as continental and international developments,” says Presidential Spokesperson Dr Bongani Ngqulunga.
