Johannesburg - President Jacob Zuma has sent his condolences to the people of Guinea-Bissau following the death of the country's president, Malam Bacai Sanha, on Monday.

      Zuma should send condolences to each and every South African murdered in South Africa! More South Africans have died than people in Iraq! More South Africans have died than people in Afghanistan! More South Africans have died than in the Mexico Drug War! Zero Understanding Matters Any!

    Typical dictator. He misappropriated billions in oil revenue and left his country impoverished, so much so, that he couldn't even get good health care in his own country and had to go to Paris (the second home of most of the world's dictators). Zuma should not be sending condolences to the family of such a despot.

    Why go a hospital in Paris?it shows that he did not develop his country to be able to care for him during difficult health problems. Other dictators should learn from this and start returning what they have looted in order to rebuild their countries. Condolences to his family anyway.

    I believe Zuma was forced to send condolences to the family of late sahna. It did not come from his heart, it is a traditional that he should read few sentances if a president of any country passed away!!
