  • Theresa May will tour 3 African countries for the first time since becoming British Prime Minister in 2016

Theresa May will tour African countries for the first time since becoming British Prime Minister in 2016 as the United Kingdom prepares to leave the European Union in 2019.

May will visit South Africa (Tuesday), Nigeria (Wednesday) and Kenya (Thursday) on a mission to deepen and strengthen UK global partnerships aimed at boosting post-Brexit fortunes.

This is the first time any British leader will be visiting the Sub-Saharan Africa region since David Cameron attended the Nelson Mandela's memorial service in 2013.

A statement from Downing Street spokeswoman added that “The PM will use the visit to announce further support to tackle instability across the region because nations can't prosper without it."

Here are some of the activities of Theresa May on African soil
