Archbishop Desmond Tutu Cause of Death:
Archbishop Desmond Tutu cause of death cannot be determined since he died at the ripe age of 90 but a statement by the Tutu Family announcing his death reads:
”He wanted the world to know that he had prostate cancer and that the sooner it is detected the better the chance of managing it.
Ultimately, at the age of 90, he died peacefully ar the Oasis Frail Care Center in Cape Town this morning.
Courageous, gracious and concerned for the welfare of others to the very end.
As Mrs Tutu says, although hr was not physically imposing, he had the inner strength of a lion”.
South Africa’s President Cyril Ramaphosa added:
The passing of Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu is another chapter of bereavement in our nation’s farewell to a generation of outstanding South African’s who have bequeathed us a liberated South Africa.
