    US First Lady Michelle Obama begins a six-day visit to southern Africa on Monday where she will meet anti-apartheid leaders and highlight the spread of democracy on the continent.


    The wife of US President Barack Obama will visit the South African cities of Pretoria, Johannesburg and Cape Town and the Botswana capital, Gaborone, starting on Monday evening, June 20 through Sunday, June 26.

    She will be accompanied by her two daughters, Malia and Sasha, but not her husband, on a trip that the White House says will focus on 'youth leadership, education, health and wellness.'

    The first lady will also be travelling with her mother, Marian Robinson, and two nephews.

    She will visit several places that are symbols of South Africa's decades-long anti-apartheid struggle, according to a schedule put out by the White House.

    After meeting Nompumelelo Ntuli-Zuma, the wife of South African president Jacob Zuma, on Tuesday, Mrs Obama will visit the Nelson Mandela Foundation in Johannesburg, where she will be given a tour by Graca Machel, the former first lady of Mozambique and now wife of former South African president Nelson Mandela.

    There were no plans announced to visit Mr Mandela, who at 92 is in fragile health, although the White House has left open the possibility of a meeting.

    Sincerely simpendi Obama or should I say the way I liked him is decreasing at a great rate…
    The only thing and part I like about him at present is Michelle…
    She truly is a lady and a great woman with great influence especially in humanitarian
    related issues and she is so interested with the de-privileged youth..

    Happy Bon Voyage Michelle...

    Michelle Obama has met Nelson Mandela for the first time after receiving a personal invitation from the former South African leader. The first lady, who is on a solo tour of South Africa with her two daughters, was viewing some documents at Mr Mandela's foundation when he asked to meet her. It was Mrs Obama's first ever meeting with the former president and came at the start of her week-long visit to the country. She flew into Pretoria with her children and her mother on Monday and started the trip with a courtesy call on one of President Jacob Zuma's wives.

    Mrs Obama spent half an hour talking to Nompumelelo Ntuli-Zuma, one of the leader's three wives, at his official residence. Mr Zuma is currently out of the country. Later in the week, the first lady is due to visit Robben Island where Mr Mandela was incarcerated. She is using the visit to highlight the importance of the empowerment of young people and women in South Africa. During what is her second solo overseas tour, she will meet government officials in Pretoria before heading to Johannesburg to visit the Apartheid Museum.

    She will also address community leaders at the Regina Mundi church in Soweto, which was a focal point for political gatherings during the struggle against white rule. The most poignant part of her visit will come on Thursday when she will travel by boat to Robben Island to see the tiny cell where Mr Mandela spent 18 of his 27 years in jail.
