PRES­I­DENT Ja­cob Zuma and his Kenyan coun­ter­part, Uhuru Keny­atta, met in Dur­ban yes­ter­day and re­solved to strengthen re­la­tions be­tween the two coun­tries.

The coun­tries al­ready en­joy warm bi­lat­eral re­la­tions and are strate­gic part­ners in many ar­eas, par­tic­u­larly trade and se­cu­rity. “We dis­cussed how our coun­tries can work to­gether… and im­prove con­nec­tiv­ity in our con­ti­nent for in­dus­tri­al­i­sa­tion to en­able us to cre­ate jobs for our young peo­ple,” Keny­atta said. Zuma said the meet­ing was pro­duc­tive. “The slave trade, par­tic­u­larly in Libya, is some­thing Africa can­not al­low again. We need to give it se­ri­ous at­ten­tion.”
