Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta has begun his state visit to South Africa. This is his first foreign trip since he was sworn-in for a second term. According to a statement by the presidency, Kenyatta will hold talks with his counterpart Jacob Zuma, in Durban centred on bilateral and pan-African issues. The two leaders will also be looking to deepen bilateral cooperation, and especially in the areas of trade, security, and infrastructure development. Kenya and South Africa are key players in peace building on the African continent and the leaders are expected to review progress in countries such as Somalia and South Sudan. Kenyatta hosted Zuma back in 2016 when both leaders discussed visa restrictions.
