Archbishop Desmond Tutu, the 1984 Nobel Peace Prize laureate that helped end apartheid in South Africa died aged 90 today. He died on Christmas day. He was a major figure in helping to end the apartheid in South Africa. He helped stop apartheid by a peaceful way as Mahatma Gandi did in India.
South African President Cyril Ramaphosa told of his gratitude to the archbishop and his death
“The passing of Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu is another chapter of bereavement in our nation’s farewell to a generation of outstanding South Africans who have bequeathed us a liberated SA.
“Desmond Tutu was a patriot without equal; a leader of principle and pragmatism who gave meaning to the biblical insight that faith without works is dead.
“A man of extraordinary intellect, integrity and invincibility against the forces of apartheid, he was also tender and vulnerable in his compassion for those who had suffered oppression, injustice and violence under apartheid, and oppressed and downtrodden people around the world.”
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi gave his tribute to Desmond Tutu just moments ago “Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu was a guiding light for countless people globally. His emphasis on human dignity and equality will be forever remembered. I am deeply saddened by his demise, and extend my heartfelt condolences to all his admirers. May his soul rest in peace.”
