We are sad to report the passing of Archbishop Desmond Tutu, who died at the age of 90 due to complication from cancer.
A human rights activist and Nobel Peace prize winner, he was a pillar of the anti-apartheid fight in South Africa and a beacon of light and love for all the people. The Washington Post describes him as an “exuberant apostle of racial justice” and we couldn’t agree more. We will always remember his cheeky smile and his contagious energy.
His great friendship with Nelson Mandela was one for the books. In fact, as it is remembered in today’s statement from the Nelson Mandela Foundation, it was at the Tutus residence in Cape Town that Madiba spent his first night of freedom after being released from Robben Island.
He will be missed by us all but his legacy will carry on with the future generations.
“Do your little bit of good where you are; it's those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.”
