Desmond Tutu’s House Burglarized During Mandela Funeral
While delivering a prayer at the memorial for Nelson Mandela, Archbishop Desmond Tutu’s home was broken into.
The thieves apparently targeted his home in the suburbs of Cape Town in the knowledge that he was more than 800 miles away at the ceremony in Johannesburg.
It is the second time in four months that the former Archbishop of Cape Town has been the victim of burglars.
‘I can confirm that there was a burglary last night,’ his aide Roger Friedman said today.
‘We are not able to tell exactly what was stolen, the archbishop and his wife were not at home. The house was not pillaged.’
