Tutu, Age 81 Hospitalized
Nobel Peace Prize laureate Archbishop Desmond Tutu checked into a South African hospital on Wednesday, April 24th for treatment of a persistent infection, his foundation announced.
Tutu, 81, also will undergo tests at the hospital in Cape Town to determine the cause of the infection, the Desmond and Leah Tutu Legacy Foundation said. Details of the infection were not released.
“The archbishop spent the morning in his office today before checking into hospital. He was in good spirits and full of praise for the care he receives from an exceptional team of doctors,” the foundation said. Tutu was a vigorous campaigner against the system of white racist rule known as apartheid, which ended when democratic elections were held in 1994.
The nonsurgical treatment is expected to take five days, according to the foundation.
