Key winning points from Uhuru's meeting with SA's Jacob Zuma

President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto during the launch of the Jubilee Party at Safaricom Stadium in Nairobi on Septermber 10 2016

"It's a message that resonates well not only with South Africans but [also] to the rest of us in our political parties in the rest of Africa‚" he said.

Apart from the issues of trade and infrastructure, Presidents Kenyatta and Zuma also deliberated on regional peace and security, especially the South Sudan conflict and the "new slave trade in Libya".

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".

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

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.

President Kenyatta said they discussed various issues aimed at seeking to foster prosperity and movement of the people of the two countries.

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.

This means that the teams of negotiators at the high-level talks proposed by South Korea will be led by minister-level officials. Mirroring Seoul's representatives, North Korea drew a list of officials in similar positions in its government, including Mr Ri.

Ramaphosa said one of the ways the relationship between Kenya and SA could be deepened, was through travel.

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

Calling for the unity of the party, Ramaphosa said the ANC has produced many great sons and daughters who spent their adult lives in the service to the people of South Africa.

On its part, South Africa has a long history of mining gold and diamonds, among other minerals, and Kenya can gain a lot from the experience and expertise.

A flight carrying the President left Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) moments before noon.

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