Pretoria - President Jacob Zuma on Wednesday hailed Ghana's late president John Atta Mills for working to strengthen relations between the two countries.

"South Africa and Ghana enjoy strong relations at both the bilateral and multilateral levels, and under President Mills's leadership, we saw genuine efforts aimed at deepening the historical relations between our two nations," he said.

"Our hearts and prayers are with the family of President Atta Mills as well as the government and the people of Ghana during this difficult time of mourning the departure of their leader."

The 68-year-old Mills died suddenly on Tuesday. He had recently been to the United States for medical treatment.
