Tutu on the mend

Nobel Peace Prize laureate Archbishop Desmond Tutu made his first public appearance last week following a health scare that hospitalized him for much of July and August. On 7 Oct 2015 -- his 84th birthday -- Archbishop Tutu attended the fifth annual Desmond Tutu International Peace lecture in Cape Town. Walking with the aid of a stick, Archbishop Tutu welcomed the guest speaker, Public Protector Thuli Madonsela, who gave a lecture entitled: “Democracy and Peace: What's the law got to do with it?” Two unrelated infections led to the former archbishop’s hospitalization, and have left him bowed and weakened, observers report.
