Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra will leave on Sunday for three African countries to promote Thailand's new strategy on the continent, which is set to be a new market for Thai investors. 

Ms Yingluck will visit Mozambique, Tanzania and Uganda before returning home on Friday.

It will be the first official visit by any Thai leader to the three countries, though Ms Yingluck's brother Thaksin is no stranger to the continent or the countries on her itinerary.
