The Chairman African Tourism Board, Cuthbert Ncube on behalf of the Executive Board and the entire members of the organization has commiserated with the government, familyand good people of South Africa on the passing of one of the very outspoken Africans against human injustice, Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
“it’s a great sadness to lose one of the Continent’s Giants who spent his life fighting for justice in liberating the oppressed populace in Africa. The passing of Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, who was a cornerstone for African justice and equality for the oppressed has sent shock waves across the Globe”, Ncube said.
The climax remembrance of his legacy was when he led the Truth and Reconciliation Commission as the commission’s Chairperson.
Tutu was a key ally of Nelson Mandela in the fight against apartheid and human rights abuses against black populace in South Africa and always balanced so well his role as a religion cleric and a political activist.
Archbishop Desmond Tutu was appointed in 1985 to Chair the Commission with a central purpose of promoting reconciliation and forgiveness among perpetrators and victims of the brutal atrocities committed by the white minority against black majority during the apartheid regime.
