President Uhuru Raises Thorny Issue Of Visas With Ramaphosa

Kenya’s President Uhuru Kenyatta is on a two-day official visit to South Africa, where he has held talks with his host Cyril Ramaphosa on a wide range of issues.

On the thorny issue of visas, which are seen as onerous to Kenyans, President Ramaphosa said he would form a team to look into the issues raised by East African travellers.

Last year South Africa exported $480m$358m, worth of goods to Kenya, while only importing $20m.

Trade Barriers
The two presidents resolved to address this trade imbalance and Mr Ramaphosa said any unnecessary trade barriers would be removed. He added that he wanted to see more Kenyan products in South Africa.

Tomorrow President Kenyatta will visit a vaccine manufacturing facility. He has criticised the “hoarding” of vaccines by the West and called for Africa to make its own vaccines.
