Oz Katerji tweeted: "Oh just shut up and let Theresa May dance ffs, we can't all be blessed with rhythm", while Peter Carr added: "I'm a massive fan of Theresa May giving that dancing a go when she knows full well that she looks like that when she tries".

"I like to move it, move it": WATCH Theresa May indulging in "robotic" African dance Theresa May reaffirmed her reputation as the Tory Dance Queen after once again showing off her moves in Africa, drawing widespread mockery for the second time in two days on Twitter. "We want to enhance those trading links", she said.

UK-Nigeria trade was worth £4.2 billion previous year and British companies including British Airways, GSK, Shell, Diageo, Unilever and Standard Chartered have successful and long-established operations in Nigeria, many of which date back to the 1930s.

In April, Britain hosted a meeting of Commonwealth countries, including South Africa, Kenya and Nigeria, seeking to reinvigorate the network of mostly former colonies and drum up new trade amongst its members.

On the three-nation visit, she had pledged £4 billion aid to Africa.

Total trade with Nigeria, South Africa, and Kenya, the three nations on her tour this week, amounted to just over 13 billion pounds in 2016, official British figures show, compared with 554 billion pounds of trade with the European Union that year.

Crossrail opening delayed until autumn 2019
Once it does open, commuters in Abbey Wood will be able to get to Liverpool Street Station in just 17 minutes. Crossrail, due to launch in December 2018, will not open until autumn 2019, it has been announced.

She rejected criticism from her former chief of staff Nick Timothy, insisting her deal would mean Britain ending free movement and leaving European Union institutions.

Stolen funds found in Britain can now be used to fund development projects in sectors such as health and education.

"We welcome your commitment to fight this vice from your country and we signed an agreement to ensure that any proceeds of corruption from Kenya that end up in the United Kingdom would be given back to the Kenyan people and spent for their benefit", she said. AU troops landed in Mogadishu more than a decade ago and Somali forces are supposed to eventually take over their duties. Kenya is hungry for that kind of foreign investment, which can provide employment and opportunities to its growing population.

During a visit in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi, she spoke, in particular, with the local scouts, one of which repeated the motion.

May said that Kenya holds a special place in the hearts of British people.
