ARCHBISHOP TUTU DISCHARGED FROM HOSPITAL

Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu was discharged from hospital this morning.

His daughter, the Reverend Canon Mpho Tutu, said her father wished to say a special thank you to the hospital staff who had cared for him, and his wonderfully talented and generous medical team.

The Reverend Canon Tutu added that the love, prayers and good wishes expressed by people around the world had been just as important as the medical attention in aiding the Arch’s recovery.
