Business leaders world over reflected on the legacy of Nelson Madela, who passed away on Friday. Mandela, the first African man to become the President of South Africa, was 95-years-old and struggling with a lung infection for some time.

Here are the tweets of global business leaders.

Anand Mahindra

Chairman and Managing Director, Mahindra Group

Left S.Africa today & heard of Mandela's passing in a transit lounge. Madiba is in transit to a better place,leaving the world a better place.

And so Madiba's passing is no different from the passing of a father. The responsibility for sustaining his work lies upon us all.

Even though he had not been active in your life, you feel alone & feel the responsibility for your family lying heavily upon your shoulders.

When you lose an aged & infirm father, it is not unexpected, but it feels as if an umbrella over you has been snatched away.
