BREAKING: Archbishop Desmond Tutu is dead

Nobel Peace Prize winner and the first black archbishop of Cape Town, South Africa Desmond Tutu has passed on aged 90.

A statement released by South African President Cyril Ramaphosa on Sunday confirmed the development.

“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,” Ramaphosa said.

Tutu received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1984 for his efforts to end apartheid, and was the last surviving South African Nobel laureate. He played a key role in South Africa’s transition from the apartheid era, including serving as chairman of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission at the direction of then-President Nelson Mandela.
