From the desk of the General Secretary, Bishop Malusi Mpumlwana
26 December 2021
The South African Council of Churches (SACC) has received the news of the
passing away of Archbishop Emeritus, Desmond Tutu.
We condole with the Tutu family, understanding the depth of their pain at the loss of a man who was a father to so many.
We are mobilised to support the Tutu family, the Desmond and Leah Tutu Legacy Foundation, and indeed the Anglican Church at this time, and commit to honouring the works and memory of our beloved ‘Arch’, even as we call on all to celebrate the life and ministry of such a powerful witness for the justice that God demands of all of us.
May his soul rest in eternal peace.
