JOHANNESBURG (AP) — Retired Archbishop Desmond Tutu‘s foundation says the anti-apartheid hero was released from a hospital in Cape Town on Monday following five days of successful treatment for a persistent infection.
The Desmond and Leah Tutu Legacy Foundation said a battery of tests to determine the underlying cause of the infection, and its persistence, uncovered no new malignancy.
It said doctors will continue to manage the 81-year-old archbishop’s prostate cancer.
