WASHINGTON DC- APRIL 30 Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari speaks during a meeting with US President Donald Trump in the Oval Office of the White House

May arrived in Cape Town on Tuesday morning as part of a one-day working visit to South Africa - her first since becoming PM in 2016. See video here, or a different version here. In fact, it was her dancing that created a buzz on social media. It's tough to say, but the Evening Standard christens it the "Maybot".

Mrs May appeared to be pleased with the reception, thanking the children for dancing with her.

The Guardian: "Bust out some moves?"

Theresa May has turned her hand to dancefloor diplomacy on the opening day of her trade trip to Africa.

The prime minister had earlier attracted mixed reviews for her tentative dance steps as she was greeted by singing pupils during a visit to a Cape Town school.

May's comment, made to reporters as she headed to Africa to boost Britain's trade ties ahead of Brexit in March 2019, came after her finance minister Philip Hammond said last week that a no-deal departure from the European Union would damage public finances.

The added blue line was quickly spotted online, as Twitter users speculated whether it was a simple mistake or a deliberate act. The Russian flag has red, white and blue stripes, maybe the fuc*ing moron thought he was coloring the Russian flag.

"Look at what the director general of the World Trade Organisation has said". May has promised to boost Britain's investment in the continent.

Addressing the pupils at their assembly, accompanied by Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga, she told them she'd never been to South Africa before. But according to Quartz Africa, senior Chinese leaders visited Africa 79 times between 2007 and 2017, making it to 43 countries - including South Africa multiple times.

She said while the United Kingdom could not match the "economic might" of some foreign investors - like China or America - it offered long-term opportunities of the "highest quality and breadth".

When May meets with Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta on Thursday, he will be fresh back from meeting US President Trump in Washington.

The party added: "This is particularly as we have been made aware of plans by the Federal Government to use the visit to dish out more lies to the global community in an effort to cover its failures in governance in the last three years, for which Nigerians are clamouring for a new president under the PDP".

"The UK has for some time now supported land reform that is legal and transparent and generated through a democratic process".
