Kenya's president arrives in East London for ANC's anniversary

Article Image

Kenyatta arrived in the country early this week for a state visit and met Zuma on Thursday at the John Dube state house in Durban.

They both said they discussed trade and connectivity and how these would boost industrialisation and also create jobs for millions of young people.

The African National Congress (ANC) is now hosting a Gala Dinner in East London this evening ahead of its birthday celebration on Saturday.

Zuma said the meeting included a number of "consultations" and said he was looking forward to Kenyatta's state visit in the first half of the year.

Gerrit van Rooyen, of NKC African Economics, said investors would scrutinise Ramaphosa's speech for clues on his policy preferences, as well as signals that President Jacob Zuma could be forced to step down soon.

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

"[Today's visit] has laid the groundwork for my state visit, which should be sometime in the first quarter of this year, where we hope to conclude some very strong agreements of mutual benefit", Kenyatta said.

Kenyatta is also expected to meet Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa, who succeeded Zuma last month as party leader of the ruling African National Congress. "We want to see how political parties in Africa can cooperate", said President Kenyatta.

Ramaphosa is a veteran of the anti-apartheid struggle, and was the lead negotiator in talks to end apartheid and the writing of the country's constitution.

President Uhuru Kenyatta addresses a joint press briefing with his South African host President Jacob Zuma on January 11, 2018.
