President Uhuru Kenyatta has said Kenya will set aside 10 acres of land at Naivasha Inland Container Depot (ICD) for South Sudan.
Speaking on Monday, July 1 when he welcomed visiting South Sudan President Salva Kiir, Uhuru said the move will help in the movement of goods between the two countries and broaden existing business ties.
This comes three months after the government offered Uganda land in Naivasha for the sister country to set up a dry port.
“To ease the movement of goods to South Sudan, the government has responded to the request by South Sudan to set aside 10 acres,” said Uhuru.
The two leaders commenced their talks in and among issues they are set to discuss is bolstering of business, peace and diplomatic relations between Nairobi and Juba.
Peace in South Sudan has been of major concern to Uhuru, who has been at the forefront in attempts at finding a lasting solution.
