S. African president Ramaphosa arrives at Tutu's house

The anti-apartheid hero died in a Cape Town nursing home aged 90 on Sunday (December 26).

Tutu, a Nobel laureate who had preached against the tyranny of the white minority, was revered by Black and white South Africans alike as the nation's moral conscience.

His passing prompted an outpouring of tributes worldwide, including from U.S. President Joe Biden and his predecessors Barack Obama and Jimmy Carter, Britain's Queen Elizabeth, Pope Francis and the foundation of Nelson Mandela, South Africa's first Black president and

friend of Tutu.
