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 have also had the opportunity to discuss regional issues of mutual interest, and matters of peace and security. We look forward to concluding and signing various agreements".

Visiting Kenyan president Uhuru Kenyatta will attend South Africa's ruling African National Congress party's 106th birthday celebrations in East London on Saturday.South African President Jacob Zuma made the announcement on Thursday evening during a press briefing at his presidential Dube House in Durban, where he is hosting Kenyatta.

"We also felt that while he was here, he could participate in the birthday of the ruling party, because we have had very good discussions about how to make our parties work together".

Kenyatta said the relationship between South Africa and Kenya was already strong but they both want to take it further.

President Kenyatta will also meet Deputy President and President of the ANC Cyril Ramaphosa who was picked to succeed President Zuma as leader of the ANC in a national congress last month.
