Russia will host its first-ever Africa Summit on Wednesday in the Black Sea resort of Sochi.

The meeting will be co-chaired by President Vladimir Putin and his Egyptian counterpart, Abdel Fattah el-Sisi and will be attended by more than 40 African leaders, including President Cyril Ramaphosa.

Russia has been seeking to restore its influence on the continent.

South Africa says it will use the opportunity on the side-lines to lobby investors to invest in South Africa.
