tut0-006Archbishop Tutu was one of the two South African figures widely credited with bringing about the fall of South Africa’s oppressive Apartheid regime. An immutable voice for justice and minister to hundreds of thousands of Black South Africans, he kept his country on the road to justice when it seemed at times a powder key ready to explode.
