BY CHARL BOSCH - AUGUST 18, 2015

The daughter of Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu has confirmed that her father has once again been re-admitted to hospital, but dismissed speculation that it was related to the treatment he had been receiving for prostate cancer.

Speaking at a press conference earlier today, Revered Mpho Tutu said the 83-year old Nobel Peace laureate was taken to hospital last night at the behest of doctors, where he will receive treatment for an unspecified inflammation.

Tutu, who was discharged earlier month after spending a week in hospital for a report persistent infection, was said to be in good spirits and in good health apart from the inflammation.
