On behalf of the Government and the people of South Africa, President Jacob Zuma has again extended the country’s condolences to the United Mexican States following the severe earthquake that shook central Mexico on the 20th September 2017, on the anniversary of the devastating 1985 quake that also caused tremendous destruction in Mexico City.
Coming so soon on the heels of the recent major earthquake, tsunami and hurricane in the south of the country, South Africans from all walks of life are shocked to hear of over 250 deaths, and join the President in offering condolences to all Mexicans who lost their loved ones in this catastrophic event.
