Hillary Clinton is rocking the pantsuit once again.

The US Secretary of State cut loose Tuesday night in South Africa, dancing the night away at a dinner in Pretoria.

Who can blame her?

She was near the end of a seven-nation tour that’s included outrunning a swarm of bees in Malawi and rotten tomatoes in Egypt.

So, dressed in an electric-blue Nehru jacket, she moved and swayed to the African rhythms of Judith Sephuma.

If you watch the video long enough, you get the opportunity to watch Clinton drop her best dance moves and generally soak in the atmosphere.

Not that she’s any stranger to the nightlife.

In Cartagena, video surfaced of the former first lady cutting loose, pulling on beer bottle at a club.

She embraced the meme, Texts from Hillary, and is generally tried to loosen her image, the Wall Street Journal says.

Clinton was on official business, too.

She met with South African foreign minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane and human rights champion Nelson Mandela.

Clinton also lauded South Africa’s new AIDS reduction strategies before wrapping up the trip today with a speech to University of Western Cape students.

“You will decide whether South Africa moves forward and not backward. You will decide whether South Africa seeks to erase old dividing lines in global politics,” she said. “You will decide whether South Africa sets aside old suspicions and instincts and embraces new partnerships tailored to 21st-century challenges.”
