Kenyan President Dr. William Ruto hosted his South African counterpart last month on matters bilateral engagements.
South African Head of State President Cyril Ramaphosa is considering resigning after an advisory panel probing a burglary scandal at his farm found he may have violated the constitution, Bloomberg reported on Thursday.
Bloomberg reported that people close and familiar with the matter who asked not to be identified as they are not authorized to speak to the media said Mr. Ramaphosa is in meetings with close allies to take advice on the matter.
The South African Parliament is set to examine the report and decide whether to push ahead with impeachment proceedings next week, only days before Ramaphosa faces a crucial internal party election.
The three person panel set up in September to probe the alleged cover up of theft at Mr. Ramaphosa's farmhouse wrote into it's conclusions that the information it gathered "discloses that the president may have committed serious violations and misconduct"
These include not reporting the theft directly to the police, acting in a way inconsistent with holding office and exposing himself to a clash between his official responsibilities and his private business.
