Archbishop Desmond Tutu is dead. He died aged 90. News of his death was reported today, December 26, 2021.

Archbishop Desmond Tutu is very popular for his role in ending apartheid in South Africa.

President Cyril Ramaphosa has reacted to his death. He noted that the churchman’s death marked “another chapter of bereavement in our nation’s farewell to a generation of outstanding South Africans”.

He said Archbishop Tutu had helped bequeath “a liberated South Africa”.

Tutu was one of the country’s best known figures at home and abroad.

President Ramaphosa said Tutu was “an iconic spiritual leader, anti-apartheid activist and global human rights campaigner”.

He described him as “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.”

May his soul rest in perfect peace!

Desmond Tutu was the grandfather of actress Natasha Thahane.
