South Africa and Kenya share longstanding, mutually beneficial relations that predate Kenya’s historic support for the struggle against apartheid and colonialism in South Africa. “The strategic partnership between the two nations is underpinned by common values and principles.
The presidency said both nations are committed to democracy, good governance and respect for human rights including the emancipation of women and the full realisation of gender equality.
South Africa established diplomatic relations with Kenya in 1992, with a Joint Commission for Cooperation Agreement enabling the highest form of bilateral engagements conducted at Ministerial level.
Kenya is East Africa’s largest economy and South Africa’s largest trading partner in Africa outside the Southern African Development Community (SADC). There are more than 60 South African companies operating in Kenya, with investments in the financial services, real estate, food and beverages, entertainment services and hospitality sector, among others
