Zuma and Kenyatta then told journalists that they had discussed a number of issues, which included deepening and strengthening relationships between the countries.

On his part, Kenyatta said his meeting with Zuma included talks on working together "for the mutual prosperity of our people", and improving connectivity on the African continent, which he said was critical to industrial development. There has been widespread speculation that Ramaphosa and his allies are lobbying ANC members to oust Zuma as head of state in the coming weeks, but he made no mention of Zuma's future.

On the agreed visit, President Kenyatta said: "We have laid the groundwork for my State visit sometime in the first quarter of this year. I have had the opportunity to brief [President Zuma] on South Sudan", he said, adding that the leaders also discussed the slave trade of African migrants in Libya. "We look forward to concluding and signing various agreements".
