Archbishop Desmond Tutu, the Nobel Peace prize laureate who helped end apartheid in South Africa, has died aged 90.
South Africa’s President Cyril Ramaphosa said the Archbishop’s death marked “another chapter of bereavement in our nation’s farewell to a generation of outstanding South Africans”.
Desmond Tutu was one of the country’s best known figures at home and abroad. A contemporary of anti-apartheid leader Nelson Mandela, he was one of the driving forces behind the movement to end the policy of racial segregation and discrimination enforced by the white minority government against the black majority in South Africa.
