Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta jetted back in the country Thursday evening after a four day state visit to Ethiopia.
The president flew in just before 7PM local time from a visit which he described as eye opening.
He met Ethiopian president Mulatu Teshome and Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn during his stay, holding talks that were described as fruitful during his stay.
He also attended and addressed the Ethiopia-Kenya business forum where he stressed the importance of the two countries doing business together.
Further, he visited several Ethiopian industries and expressed the need to have both countries learn from each other.
" It is of great importance that the two countries exchange ideas and learn from each others in areas of expertise, he said.
Finally during his stay, he attended an IGAD summit on the ongoing conflict in South Sudan, where it was agreed that member countries take bigger steps to ensuring that the conflict is solved.
Missions to have the two parties involved in the war agree on a ceasefire have failed with the war, which has claimed the lives of over 4000 people still raging on.
