Archbishop Desmond Tutu back in hospital after surgery
Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu has been readmitted to a Cape Town hospital only a few days after being discharged following a surgery just over a week ago.
In a statement released on behalf of his wife, Leah, Tutu was reportedly readmitted on Saturday as a precaution after his surgical wound had shown signs of infection.
The Archbishop had undergone the surgical procedure 10 days ago, to address the cause of recurring infections resulting from the past treatment he had received for prostate cancer, the statement said.
Mrs Tutu said that the family was very grateful for the ongoing prayers and support.
