Archbishop Desmond Tutu is in Ireland for a major conference on AIDS this week. There’s been a huge increase in the number of cases in Russia and elsewhere in Europe and Asia and delegates from 55 countries are meeting to discuss this.
Desmond Tutu was just interviewed by Marian Finucane this morning and it’s the first time I’ve heard him interviewed at length. Wow. What an eloquent speaker! He’s had a varied life, and the interview was a reminder of the the horror of Apartheid. The contrast between South Africa and Europe couldn’t be greater, he recounted his experiences in London, where Bobbies on the beat called him and his wife, “Sir”, and “Madam”, and Cape Town where a curfu for blacks meant he couldn’t walk on the street at night!
