Politicians, civil rights leaders, religious leaders and others took to social media to mourn the passing Sunday of South African anti-apartheid leader and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
Tutu died in Cape Town, according to a statement issued by President Cyril Ramaphosa. He was 90.
Ramaphosa remembered Tutu as “a patriot without equal; a leader of principle and pragmatism who gave meaning to the biblical insight that faith without works is dead.”
“We pray that Archbishop Tutu’s soul will rest in peace but that his spirit will stand sentry over the future of our nation,” he wrote in a post on Twitter.
