Through his participation in the struggle for liberation, Archbishop Tutu affirmed justice and equality as one of the most abiding roles of Christianity.

 

His participation in anti-apartheid activities, his commanding presence among the people during the most volatile times of the 1980s and his enthusiastic participation in the reconstruction of the new South Africa through among others the Truth and Reconciliation Commission is an illustrious legacy which South Africans all treasure, the President said.

 

“With his passion and caring for humanity, he made an indelible mark both locally and internationally, and this is a true measure of statesmanship.

 

“We wish Archbishop Tutu a very fulfilling retirement period, and as well as a blissful and healthy life,” Zuma said.

 

Tutu announced in July he would retire on his 79th birthday, which fell on Thursday, after years fighting for justice and an end to apartheid in South Africa and crossing the globe to highlight global human rights struggles.

 

On behalf of the people of South Africa, Zuma also wished Archbishop Tutu a very happy 79th birthday. – BuaNews
