Archbishop to miss Nobel Laureates Summit

Cape Town – Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu has cancelled his travel plans for the rest of the year for health reasons, his foundation said on Tuesday.

“(Tutu) has cancelled his travel plans… as he embarks on a new course of medication to manage the prostate cancer he’s been living with for the past 15 years,” the Desmond and Leah Tutu Legacy Foundation said in a statement.

Tutu’s daughter said he would no longer attend the Nobel Peace Laureates Summit in Rome this week.
