His Excellency President Uhuru Kenyatta will visit South Africa on 11 January 2018, the first foreign trip since he was sworn in as President for his second and final term last November.

President Kenyatta will hold talks with his host, South African President Jacob Zuma, in the Indian Ocean city of Durban, centred on bilateral and pan-African issues.

Kenya and South Africa enjoy warm relations. The leaders will be looking to deepen bilateral cooperation, and especially in the areas of trade, security, and infrastructure development.

Kenya and South Africa are also key players in peace building on the African continent, and the leaders will review progress in countries such as Somalia and South Sudan.
