Spanish region to honour Desmond Tutu with award

By Sapa-AP | May 16, 2014 | COMMENTS [ 11 ]

The government of the prosperous north-eastern Spanish region of Catalonia says it is to award South African archbishop Desmond Tutu its annual international prize.

In a statement it says a jury chose Tutu for his constant struggle for social justice and his "integrity, courage and exceptional ability."

Tutu has been active in defending human rights around the world and involved in campaigns against AIDS, tuberculosis, poverty, racism, sexism and homophobia, it says.

Tutu was chosen from 162 candidates and the award ceremony will be held on June 3 at the government palace in Barcelona.

The 82-year-old said Thursday that the award honoured him and those he described as a group of exceptionally knowledgeable and gifted activists involved in social justice across the world "on whose shoulders I have proverbially sat."

@Invertitorazzismo - We are talking Archbishop here, not a politician. Someone who should practice what he preaches. Have you ever heard of Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us? That's what Arch he is preaching. He hated Zuma from day 1. Yes I love Zuma as a human being. That's Ubuntu if I remember correctly.
