President Uhuru Kenyatta's handlers were left red-faced Thursday after the head of state was momentarily blocked by the door of his official vehicle.

Ramaphosa told the media that Kenyatta would attend the ANC's gala dinner on Friday evening and the rally the next day.

President Zuma also said that he wants to strengthen the relations between the countries and take them to a higher level.

Kenyatta said they also discussed how they can increase trade between the two countries and connectivity on the African continent which is critical to industrial development.

Kenyatta is also expected to meet Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa, who succeeded Zuma last month as party leader of the ruling African National Congress.

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

Zuma said Kenyatta could participate in the birthday of the ruling party "because we have had very good discussions about how to make our parties work together". "I have had the opportunity to brief [president Zuma] on South Sudan and to discuss other issues", said Kenyatta.

Kenyatta's discussion with Zuma will focus on bridging the balance of trade which is now highly in favor of South Africa.

He would also meet with the Johannesburg business community and the chief executive officer of Volkswagen South Africa, Thomas Schaefer, who set up an assembling plant in Kenya in 2016.
