Die südafrikanische Wochenzeitung Mail & Guardian hat es zum Staatsbegräbnisses am 1. Januar 2022 in Kapstadt eine Gedenkschrift für den Friedensnobelpreisträger veröffentlicht, um sein Leben und Wirken zu feiern.
"Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu was a giant of history. His joyful chuckle and wide smile coupled with his deep passion to fight injustices, will be forever ingrained in our collective memory while his wisdom will continue to guide us. A great teacher, he taught us over and over again the imperative of standing for unity, truth and justice. He was our moral compass and the legacy he leaves behind will continue to guide us for generations to come. The AfroCentric Group joins the millions of people around the world who are paying tribute to the Arch and as we do so, we commit ourselves to ensuring that his legacy finds expression in our efforts to improve access to quality healthcare.
Rest in peace, Arch"
