President Jacob Zuma sent his condolences to the government and people of Mexico after 101 people were reportedly killed in a tropical storm this week.

“We mourn with the government and the people of Mexico as they come to terms with the effects of the devastating storm, leaving behind a trail of destruction and death,” Zuma said today in a statement.

“The people of South Africa share the pain and loss of the loved ones, their homes and property and our thoughts and prayers go to the affected families.”

Another 68 people were reported missing.
