South Africa – South African Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, world icon of the struggle for human rights and Nobel Peace Prize 1984 for his activism against the brutal racist oppression of the “apartheid”, died this Sunday at 90 years in Cape Town (southwest).
The news of the death was announced by the South African Government earlier in the day and, shortly after, it was also confirmed by the Anglican Church of South Africa and the Desmond Foundation & Leah Tutu (name of his wife).”The death of Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu is another chapter of loss in our nation's farewell to a generation of prominent South Africans who bequeathed us a liberated South Africa”, the president of the country regretted in the government statement, Cyril Ramaphosa.
