Prince Charles visits South Africa
Britain’s Prince Charles landed at the Waterkloof Airbase, Pretoria in South Africa yesterday Wednesday night on his official 5 day visit to the country.
Prince Charles was received by South Africa's High Commissioner to Britain Zola Skweyiya and his British counterpart Nicola Brewster.
The prince is in South Africa following his trip to Kuwait to mark the country’s 50th year of independence from Britain and hopes to continue to Tanzania on November 6th.
According to a report by the British High Commission last week, the visit would focus on methods to boost Britain’s economic recovery through trade and investment promotion. Employment opportunities and climate change will also be looked into. Prince Charles also hopes to visit the Zulu King Zwelithini in KwaZulu Natal and also Deputy President of South Africa Kgalema Motlanthe.
Prince Charles wife, Camilla Rosemary the Duchess of Cornwall is also in the country.
