Zuma and President Kenyatta meet to discuss politics and business

In a video that is slowly getting viral and one that was seen by Zipo.co.ke, Kenyatta is seen alighting from his limousine with one security officer opening the door but his counterpart delays to hold it making it swing back and hit the President as he adjusted his coat.

Ramaphosa said his talk with Kenyatta focused on the bilateral relationship between the South Africa and Kenya‚ agreeing that new and strategic partnerships need to be developed.

Kenyatta told the press that there was an understanding that both countries' future in Africa was "tied at the hip".

"Political parties are the key engine in ensuring people-to-people connection", said President Kenyatta. "We also felt that whilst he is here he could also participate in the birthday of the ruling party because we had good discussions on how we make our parties work together so that we take our people along with us and our policies‚" said Zuma.

Since becoming ANC president in December‚ Ramaphosa has preached unity in the party‚ constantly saying that competing factions before the December conference should now come together.

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. Zuma said he was also looking forward to Kenyatta's state visit as it would strengthen relations between the two countries and take them to another level. He would also meet with the Johannesburg business community and the chief executive of Volkswagen South Africa, Thomas Schaefer, who set up an assembling plant in Kenya in 2016. "We must deal with that", he reportedly said.

Ramaphosa said the exploitation of natural resources would create job opportunities for the youth. Kenyatta‚ who is on his first working visit to South Africa after being re-elected in August last year‚ will also attend the ANC's 106th year celebrations in East London on Saturday.

Jubilee was represented by Vice-Chairman David Murathe and Secretary General Raphael Tuju, while ANC Deputy President David Mabuza led his party team.
