Tutu home from hospital in time to celebrate wife's birthday

Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu is back home after a stint in hospital for tests, a statement said on Friday.

"The Desmond & Leah Tutu Legacy Foundation wishes to thank all who have sent messages and prayers, including on social media, for the Arch's swift return to his feet," the foundation said.

His arrival back home coincides with his wife Leah's "eighty-somethingth" birthday on Sunday, so there is bound to be a double celebration after Tutu spent his own birthday last Sunday in hospital.

"The foundation's board of directors and staff wish Mrs Tutu a very happy birthday, and the Archbishop a full recovery to sustainable good health."

Meanwhile, fellow anti-apartheid activist Andrew Mlangeni was still in hospital but was recovering well.

Mlangeni, one of the Rivonia trialists, was admitted to hospital in Cape Town on October 3.

Monday will mark 29 years since Mlangeni was released from Robben Island. He and Denis Goldberg are the last survivors of the Rivonia Trial.
