Archbishop Thabo Makgoba recently visited Archbishop Desmond Tutu who is currently in hospital. The Cape Town Archbishop says Tutu is in high spirits.
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."
