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

President Zuma announced that he would host President Kenyatta for a State visit latter this year.

Kenyatta said they also discussed how they can increase trade between the two countries and connectivity on the African continent which is critical to industrial development.

"We also feel that while he is here, he will participate in the birthday celebrations of the ruling party", Zuma said.

"Industrialisation is key to creating job opportunities for the youth and wealth for our nations and peoples", President Kenyatta said.

The state leaders discussed different topics including the situation in South Sudan.

President Uhuru Kenyatta had travelled to South Africa to hold bilateral talks with his South African counterpart Jacob Zuma on Thursday 11th January when the incident happened.

On the agreed visit, President Kenyatta said: "We have laid the groundwork for my State visit sometime in the first quarter of this year".

The presidency said the two leaders will also explore areas geared towards increasing consultations on global issues that would be enhanced by increased contacts at the highest bilateral level. "We look forward to concluding and signing various agreements".

The Kenyan leader arrived in the country on Thursday afternoon on a three-day visit, which marks his first foreign trip since he was sworn-in for his second and final term as Kenyan president last November.

Saturday's events at the stadium start at 7am and the ANC's new president‚ Cyril Ramaphosa‚ is expected to make his address at about 11am.

Kenyatta expressed that he will be interested in talking about both politics and business with President Zuma.
