Tributes from across the globe have poured in after the passing of Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu on Sunday morning 26 December in Cape Town at the age of 90

He is being remembered as a beacon of light, a moral compass and a man of unyielding faith.

The Desmond and Leah Tutu Legacy Foundation said the world had lost one of the great spirits and moral giants of our age: “Tutu was a living embodiment of faith in action, speaking boldly against racism, injustice, corruption, and oppression, not just in apartheid South Africa.”

Also, a statement from The Nelson Mandela Foundation describes the loss as “immeasurable.”

And added: “He was an extraordinary human being. A thinker. A leader. A shepherd. Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this most difficult time.”
