Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu is back in hospital, just days after being discharged following three weeks of treatment for a recurring infection.

Tutu, who has been a moral beacon for the entire continent for many years, is 84 and has been suffering from prostate cancer for several years.

The Nobel Laureate had also been admitted to hospital in Cape Town on several occasions in recent months due to an unidentified recurring infection.

Tutu’s family said the Nobel Laureate was being treated for a surgical wound which is showing “signs of infection.”

Tutu received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1984, the Albert Schweitzer Prize for Humanitarianism in 1986 and the Pacem in Terris Award in 1987.

He also got the Sydney Peace Prize in 1999, the Gandhi Peace Prize in 2007 and South Africa Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2009.

Reports said that Tutu was widely regarded as “South Africa’s moral conscience’’ and was described by the late President Nelson Mandela as “the voice of the voiceless.’’

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) was established by the Federal Government of Nigeria in May 1976 to gather and distribute news on Nigeria and cover events of interest to Nigeria at the international level for the benefit of the Nigerian Media and the Public.

      @wale.. Hw is he different from the pastors who support, murderers, adulterers and rapists..?.. Tutu has never openly supported homosexuality, he preaches love regardless of the sin people have committed.. at no time has he justified homosexuality, and made excuses for them. He regards them as humans who are flawed, Like every other human…

      its not like our own pastors that can never admit wrong doing..who make excuses for every sin particularly those committed by a man… those pastors who believe it is their right to sleep around and still justify it. those that are yet to give a “robust” response.. Those that abuse their wives INFRONT OF CONGREGANTS!. those who don’t believe that a man who sleeps with his maid is just down right dirty, and that there just MUST be external forces because .. ohh no! a man can’t sin just like that now.. it must be a marine spirit..

      you are in no position to call This man worldly just because he refuses to preach hatred.. Please let the change start from your own pastors ehn..
