Kenyatta expressed that he will be interested in talking about both politics and business with President Zuma.
ANC president Cyril Ramaphosa has vowed that the ANC will "deal" with corruption, ahead of his January 8 statement on Saturday, Eyewitness News (EWN) reported. "What we need to do is to develop that relationship to a higher level to benefit our peoples and countries", said Ramaphosa.
This was revealed by Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta after his meeting with his South African counterpart‚ President Jacob Zuma‚ in Durban yesterday.
"I am really looking forward to concluding a number of bilateral agreements when I am back for the state visit‚" said Kenyatta.
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.
"South Africans deserve a capable President who will act in their best interest at all times‚ not someone who abuses their power and steals from the people".
Ramaphosa told the media that Kenyatta would attend the ANC's gala dinner on Friday evening and the rally the next day.
President Kenyatta is on his first working visit to South Africa since his inauguration in November 2017.

"We have a common heritage as people of Africa. All this must be done in a smart partnership‚" Ramaphosa said.
"The fate of Africa is tied at the hip and the relationships should foster partnerships that are beneficial to the citizens", President Kenyatta said.
"Our success is not on the basis of competition".
