CAPE TOWN - United States (US) Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Wednesday emphasised the importance of global partnerships in solving pressing international issues.

She is in South Africa on a four-day official visit as part of her two-week tour of Africa.

Clinton visited Senegal, South Sudan, Uganda, Kenya, Malawi and her last stop will be Ghana.

Earlier on Wednesday, she delivered a lecture at the University of the Western Cape where she said South Africa has become a constructive force for change in Africa.

The top US diplomat believes some problems are too big to tackle alone.

"None of these problems can be solved by one country acting alone or even by several countries acting together. Each one [problem] calls for a global network of partners."

Clinton is travelling with a delegation of American businessmen from various sectors.

On Monday, Clinton visited former president Nelson Mandela at his Qunu home in the Eastern Cape.

In July, former US president Bill Clinton and his daughter visited Madiba to wish him a happy birthday as part of Nelson Mandela Day celebrations.
