British PM, Theresa May Filmed Dancing for Second Time on African Trip

Theresa May has been filmed dancing for the second time on her tour of Africa as she tries to tie down trade deals ahead of Brexit.

The prime minister showed off more of her “Maybot” moves when she met a group of scouts in Kenya on Thursday.

In footage shared online, Ms May is seen copying a dance routine being performed by members of the organisation, raising her hands to the sky.

Wearing a pair of her trademark leopard print shoes, she then begins shuffling her feet and bobbing to the music.

Ms May’s apparent willingness to strut her moves during the trip have won her some unlikely plaudits on social media.

“It’s kinda adorable,” wrote one Twitter user in reaction to the latest video.

However, others have been less generous in their evaluations of the prime minister’s dancing talents.

“Theresa May is dancing like a possessed corpse again,” another user observed.

Ms May’s moves have caught the eye once already during her African trip when she was filmed earlier this week dancing with schoolchildren in Cape Town, South Africa.

The Conservative leader is in Kenya for the final leg of her three-nation tour of Africa aimed at improving trade ties on the continent post-Brexit.

At a joint press conference, Kenyan president Uhuru Kenyatta told reporters he did not want to “dwell on the past” when asked if Britain had neglected his country in recent years.

Ms May is the first British prime minister to visit Kenya since Margaret Thatcher travelled to the east African nation 30 years ago.

Mr Kenyatta said he expects the two countries to also work together as part of the Commonwealth to improve fair trade, adding: “I don’t see Brexit meaning anything detrimental towards the strong trade ties that we already have, and I’ve said we’re actually seeking to boost that going forward.”

Ms May pledged “duty-free, quota-free” access to British markets would continue after Brexit, with talks already under way.

She has also announced a new security pact between the two countries and a desire to strengthen trading links.
