JOHANNESBURG - President Jacob Zuma has sent his condolences to the people and government of the United Kingdom (UK) as well as Thatcher's family.
Presidency spokesperson Mac Maharaj said, “The President said our thoughts and prayers are with the family of Lady Thatcher and the people of the UK during this difficult time. She was a formidable political leader and a formidable leader among leaders.”
Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair said despite their political difference he viewed the late Iron Lady as a strong leader.
Blair reflected on Thatcher as a leader.
“She was a huge and towering figure and there are very few leaders that get the chance and have the ability to change not only their own national landscape but the global landscape and she did that.”
Meanwhile the current British Prime Minister David Cameron told reporters that baroness Thatcher was a great Brit who did not just lead the country, but saved it.
His comments reflect a period in the late 1970’s when the economy was on its knees and mass strikes were a weekly occurrence.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel said she would never forget her part in surmounting the division on Europe.
Merkel was born behind the Berlin Wall in East-Berlin and was recognised in the vital contribution played by Thatcher in bringing the Cold War to an end.
Her comments were echoed by Barack Obama who added the world had lost one of the great champions of freedom and liberty.
A funeral will be held next week for the 87-year-old who died of a stroke.
Many world leaders are expected to attend.
