Was Maggie Thatcher a witch?

When the world woke up to hear that a section of British people staged a demo happily singing, rejoicing and celebrating the passing on of their former PM Margret Thatcher, it received it with mixed reactions. Some thought what those Brits were doing to sing Ding Dong! The Witch is Dead! was their right while others thought otherwise. For Africa, no doubt, Thatcher was the witch who was ready to enter any pact with any killers and racists just because there were some monies to be made. The living example is Thatcher's refusal to extend sanctions to Apartheid Regime in South Africa. She, too was, a great backer and friend of dictators such as Idd Amin, Hastings Kamuzu Banda, Mobutu Seseseko and other many more. Sadly though, many Africa presidents have ignored of forgotten history so as to praise Thatcher will Brits see her as a witch especially the hoi polloi. Shame on all who have ignored and forgotten history or who embarked on cheap politics aimed at gaining Britain sympathy by showering Thatcher with praises she did not deserve.
