Uhuru expected to address ANC delegation

He said he also discussed bilateral issues which seek to foster greater partnership between the two countries with Ramaphosa, in his capacity as deputy president of the country.

He said 2018 has been dedicated to the remembrance of liberation hero, President of ANC and South Africa Nelson Mandela, who would be 100 this year.

Kenyatta said they seek to increase connectivity between South Africans and Kenyans, and that there was an understanding that the future of Africans are "tied at the hip".

"We want to see political parties start to work together and partner in policy making as such partnerships will play a key role in reconnecting with people hence establishing stronger bonds", Uhuru said in South Africa.

The President commended the ANC leader for following in the footsteps of the founding fathers of the ruling party, saying the message of unity resonates well with their ideals.

Mr. Ramaphosa said ties between the two countries can be boosted by opening doors to the citizens to travel and do business without impediment.


"We open our doors for Kenyans to come to SA, and they must open their doors for South Africans to go to Kenya", Ramaphosa said.

He said the two countries have a lot to share in exploitation and development of natural resources for the benefit of their citizens.

It is the first time the President has set foot outside Kenya since he was reelected into office following a harrowing electioneering period and is expected to be in South Africa for three days.

"We shall redouble our efforts to build a society in which black poverty and white privilege are consigned to the past, replaced by solidarity", Ramaphosa said.

Mr Ramaphosa said the exploitation of natural resources would create job opportunities for the youth. When Kenyatta was officially welcomed immediately after, the crowd erupted in cheers.

Jubilee Party leaders Vice-Chairman David Murathe and Secretary-General Raphael Tuju accompanied President Kenyatta.
