“Ultimately, at the age of 90, he died peacefully at the Oasis Frail Care Centre in Cape Town this morning,” Dr Ramphela Mamphele said in a statement on behalf of the Tutu family.

 

Dr Mamphele did not give details on the cause of death. He was diagnosed with prostate cancer in the late 1990s and had been hospitalised several times in recent years to treat infections associated with his cancer treatment.
