    "African nations are apparently running a tourney to see who can get May to do the cringiest dance," a Twitter user said, referring to a video of the UK PM dancing in Kenya.

    Theresa May has yet again busted some moves during her trip to Africa. Previously having hit the dance floor in a South African school, Mrs. May had another go at it.

    The UK PM  joined the head of UN Environment, Erik Solheim, on the UN campus in Nairobi, where she announced the launch of a new 'plastic challenge' badge for guides and scouts. She then joined a dance performance by some of the scouts.

    Once the video of Mrs. May surfaced online, it expectedly drew thousands of comments from users. 

    The UK Prime Minister's visit to Nairobi is part of her three-country Africa tour, which included South Africa and Nigeria, the continent's top economies. Mrs. May, accompanied by a large business delegation, aims to boost trade with Africa as Britain is facing exit from the European Union in 2019.
