According to Reuters, prominent anti-apartheid cleric and veteran South African leader, Archbishop Desmond Tutu was released from hospital on Tuesday after being re-admitted for a recurring infection related to treatment for his prostate cancer, his daughter said.
Tutu, 83, who was hospitalized over the weekend at a Cape Town hospital, would continue his recovery at home, his daughter, the Reverend Canon Mpho Tutu said in a statement.
"The infection was a consequence of treatment for prostate cancer that the archbishop has received over the past 18 years. The cancer, itself, was well under control," Mpho said.
