Secretary-General on the passing of Archbishop Desmond Tutu

I was greatly saddened to learn of the passing of Archbishop Desmond Tutu, an unwavering voice for the voiceless.
Archbishop Tutu was a towering global figure for peace and an inspiration to generations across the world.   During the darkest days of apartheid, he was a shining beacon for social justice, freedom and non-violent resistance. 
Archbishop Tutu’s relentless determination to build global solidarity for a free and democratic South Africa was fittingly recognised by the Nobel Committee in its decision to award him the Nobel Peace Prize in 1984.
