Sequel to Britain’s post-Brexit by March 2019, Britain’s Prime Minister Theresa May embarked on a continental tour to Africa. During the three-nations visit, the UK prime minister alongside some high-rank officials in her government visited three of sub-Saharan Africa’s biggest economies; South Africa, Nigeria, and Kenya on (Aug 28, 29 and 30) respectfully

May’s first stop was South Africa, where she handed the SS Mendi‘s ship bell to South Africans, talked about UK-South Africa trade investment deals, amongst other discussions. She also visited I.D. Mkize Secondary School Cape Town, where she was received by excited students.

The Prime Minister continued her tour, visiting Nigeria on Wednesday where she held talks with the country’s President Gen. Muhammadu Buhari and ended the Tour in Eastern Africa.

While in Kenya, May reaffirmed Britain’s plans of becoming Africa’s largest investor after which she held talks with President Uhuru Kenyatta and visited UN’s Nairobi office where she ended her tour on Thursday 30th August 2019.
