British Prime Minister Theresa May appeared to dismiss concerns raised by one of her own ministers that the United Kingdom could leave the European Union without a deal, saying that such a scenario "wouldn't be the end of the world".

Donning a bright red blazer and black pants, the 61-year-old bopped her head and wiggled her hips in front of reporters on Tuesday as pupils from ID Mkhize Senior Secondary sang for her and danced.

The UK aims to become the top foreign investor in Africa by 2022, Prime Minister Theresa May will say on Tuesday as she seeks to strengthen Britain's global economic ties to show it's open for business after Brexit.

May pushed back against this, saying "we are all working towards an October deadline".

May will now meet with President Cyril Ramaphosa and, weather permitting, go to Robben Island - where South Africa's first democratic leader Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for years by the apartheid regime.

May, who assumed office two years ago, met with pupils at a Cape Town school, breaking into a spontaneous dance as they greeted her to traditional South African music.

This drive will culminate in an Investment Conference on 25-27 October, which will bring together investors both from within South Africa and from other parts of the world.

Fed Chairman Jerome Powell is due to speak at the conference and is widely expected to also signal more rate hikes ahead. Five of those rate hikes, including two this year, have occurred with Trump in the White House.

"But I am also unashamed about the need to ensure that our aid programme works for the UK".

"If the prime minister is genuine about tackling poverty in Africa then she needs to think less about how privatisation can bolster the profits of the few, and pay more attention to tackling deep rooted inequalities that prevent people from living a dignified life".

"The comparison between those people who are lobbying global communities against land reform to the struggle is an insult that has no measure".

Over 600 troops, the majority black South Africans, died when the Mendi tragically sank in the English Channel in 1917, on their way to join the Allied forces on the Western Front.

She said: "What I see before me in this hall today is the future of South Africa".

Last week, US President Donald Trump posted a controversial tweet on SA's push to expropriate land without compensation.

Theresa May will lead an ambitious trip to Africa this week on her first visit to the continent as Prime Minister. She is being hosted by President Cyril Ramaphosa, and is accompanied by about two-dozen British businesspeople.
