Arch back in hospital

BY CHARL BOSCH - JULY 29, 2015

Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu has been re-admitted to hospital a week after being discharged following treatment for a reported “persistent infection”.

“He was discharged from hospital last Tuesday, and re-admitted this afternoon after expressing renewed discomfort. His doctors considered it prudent for him to return to hospital for observation,” the Desmond and Leah Tutu Legacy Foundation said in statement yesterday.

The 83-year old Nobel Peace laureate was taken to hospital two weeks ago for a similar ailment, but was said to have in good spirits having renewed his wedding vows to wife, Leah, a few days earlier.
