Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu might be in hospital but he is in a good state of mind according to Archbishop Thabo Makgoba.

TimesLIVE reports that Makgoba visited Tutu, saying that this was something of a norm with the Archbishop having been admitted numerous times over the past few years:

“When I told him that I had told Leah I was coming to scold him out of hospital, he chuckled warmly, which is a good sign. He also said he apologised for making me do so many hospital visits!"

The Archbishop is currently being treated for a stubborn infection according to his wife, Leah, who released a statement earlier this week, Briefly.co.za gathered.

But Makgoba assured the nation that Tutu is doing well following his visit:

“I went to see him this evening, where I found him lucid and engaging. He said he is as good as he can be for an 88-year-old, especially in view of his ill health in childhood."
