South Africans mourned Archbishop Desmond Tutu after it was announced Sunday that the anti-apartheid activist had died at the age of 90.
Tutu worked tirelessly, though non-violently, for the dismantling of Apartheid — South Africa’s brutal regime of oppression against the Black majority.
The buoyant, blunt-spoken clergyman used his pulpit as the first Black bishop of Johannesburg and later Archbishop of Cape Town, along with frequent public demonstrations, to galvanize public opinion against racial inequity both at home and globally.
Tutu had been hospitalized several times since 2015 after being diagnosed with prostate cancer in 1997.

Holy Toledo! Had no idea he was STILL alive! Wow
praying for the repose of his soul.
Resurrect in paradise
must have been Corona……….va33ine
Prime example of "the science" religion and how they incorrectly wear their ineffective masks.
A great man, an anchor for justice, a beacon for human rights. I know you will continue the fight on the other side. R.I.P.
I'm celebrating, not mourning, his life. I appreciate all the wisdom he imparted on us. We were blessed to have him for 90 years.
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.[112:1]
Say: He is Allah, the One!
Allah, the eternally Besought of all!
He begetteth not nor was begotten.
And there is none comparable unto Him.
Allah is the light of the heavens and the earth. There is no god but He, the Mighty, the Wise. He does not resemble anyone of His creation. He created the angels from light. He created the heavens and the earth from smoke. He created animals and plants from water. He created the jinn from fire. He created Adam from dust. He created Eve from Adam’s rib. Jesus, the son of Mary, from a word he sent with Gabriel, peace be upon him, to the Virgin Mary, he created a serpent (a snake) from the staff of Moses, and with the same stick he split the sea into two parts, (each of them is like a great mountain), He created a female camel out of rock, He creates whatever He wills while He is upon Everything is powerful. He revived the dead of a village (350 thousand) with the knowledge of the Prophet of the Children of Israel Ezekiel. He revived some of the dead at the hand of Jesus and one of them at the hand of Moses. He made the prophets speak to the dead. Allah Almighty says to something Be, and it is.——————
Say: O My slaves who have been prodigal to their own hurt! Despair not of the mercy of Allah, Who forgiveth all sins. Lo! He is the Forgiving, the Merciful.
Turn unto your Lord repentant, and surrender unto Him, before there come unto you the doom, when ye cannot be helped.
And follow the better (guidance) of that which is revealed unto you from your Lord, before the doom cometh on you suddenly when ye know not,
Lest any soul should say: Alas, my grief that I was unmindful of Allah, and I was indeed among the scoffers!
Or should say: If Allah had but guided me I should have been among the dutiful!
Or should say, when it seeth the doom: Oh, that I had but a second chance that I might be among the righteous!
(But now the answer will be): Nay, for My revelations came unto thee, but thou didst deny them and wast scornful and wast among the disbelievers.
And on the Day of Resurrection thou (Muhammad) seest those who lied concerning Allah with their faces blackened. Is not the home of the scorners in hell ?
And Allah delivereth those who ward off (evil) because of their deserts. Evil toucheth them not, nor do they grieve.
Allah is Creator of all things, and He is Guardian over all things.
His are the keys of the heavens and the earth, and they who disbelieve the revelations of Allah – such are they who are the losers.
Say (O Muhammad, to the disbelievers): Do ye bid me serve other than Allah ? O ye fools!
And verily it hath been revealed unto thee as unto those before thee (saying): If thou ascribe a partner to Allah thy work will fail and thou indeed wilt be among the losers.
Nay, but Allah must thou serve, and be among the thankful!
And they esteem not Allah as He hath the right to be esteemed, when the whole earth is His handful on the Day of Resurrection, and the heavens are rolled in His right hand. Glorified is He and High Exalted from all that they ascribe as partner (unto Him).
And the trumpet is blown, and all who are in the heavens and all who are in the earth swoon away, save him whom Allah willeth. Then it is blown a second time, and behold them standing waiting!
And the earth shineth with the light of her Lord, and the Book is set up, and the prophets and the witnesses are brought, and it is judged between them with truth, and they are not wronged.
And each soul is paid in full for what it did. And He is Best Aware of what they do.
And those who disbelieve are driven unto hell in troops till, when they reach it and the gates thereof are opened, and the warders thereof say unto them: Came there not unto you messengers of your own, reciting unto you the revelations of your Lord and warning you of the meeting of this your Day ? they say: Yea, verily. But the word of doom of disbelievers is fulfilled.
It is said (unto them): Enter ye the gates of hell to dwell therein. Thus hapless is the journey’s end of the scorners.
And those who keep their duty to their Lord are driven unto the Garden in troops till, when they reach it, and the gates thereof are opened, and the warders thereof say unto them: Peace be unto you! Ye are good, so enter ye (the Garden of delight), to dwell therein;
They say: Praise be to Allah, Who hath fulfilled His promise unto us and hath made us inherit the land, sojourning in the Garden where we will! So bounteous is the wage of workers.
And thou (O Muhammad) seest the angels thronging round the Throne, hymning the praises of their Lord. And they are judged aright. And it is said: Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds!
May he Rest In Peace 🙏 🕊

Sad news to hear about, I offer all my sympathy and prayers for an extraordinary man, I always had deep respect for him, R.I.P.

Regardless of one’s nationality or faith, Desmond Tutu is a role model for all.

He was the country's moral compass. For all races. RIP Desmond Mpilo Tutu.
Archbishop was the hero who defied and challenged the ugly terror of Apartheid and plucked its feathers. His name will remain eternal wherever Man fights tyranny
Desmond Tutu dead at 90. The Legacy of a Noble Peace Prize
South Africa continues to spiral in Violence.
“We are on the verge of eating each other,” community leader Nhlanhla Lux told the Financial Times as he and a group of other armed men dug in to defend the Maponya Mall in Soweto from looters.
From its origin in Zuma’s home in KwaZulu-Natal province, the unrest has since spread to cities across the nation, including Johannesburg, reportedly killing at least 117 people and choking major commercial roads, leading to dire shortages of food and fuel.
What a waste of a Noble Peace Prize, South Africa is back to Neanderthal Times.
Desmond Tutu his land back to Violence, what did he achieve??
R.I.P Desmond Tutu you wil be missed 🙁
His wife was a terrible woman who tortured people.
