British Prime Minister Theresa May announced a new ambition to boost investment in Africa at a news conference in Cape Town on Tuesday.

May said she wants Britain to become the biggest investor in Africa out of the G7, overtaking the United States, by using the aid budget to help British private sector companies invest on the continent.

She also said that Britain supports South Africa's land reform program, provided it is carried out legally, adding that she would discuss the topic with President Cyril Ramaphosa later in the day.

May, battling to unite her divided party over her plan to take Britain out of the European Union, will also visit Nigeria and Kenya as part of a three-day visit to Africa alongside a group of business delegates.
