CAPE TOWN - Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu's spokesperson says it's not yet clear exactly what was stolen from his Cape Town home.

Tutu's Milnerton home was burgled on Tuesday while he was attending a memorial service for former president Nelson Mandela at FNB Stadium in Soweto.

Family spokesperson Roger Friedman says the extent of the loss is not clear at this stage.

This is not the first time the Tutu family has been hit by crime.

In August, thieves gained access to Tutu and his wife Leah's home while they were asleep. Tutu and his wife were asleep when the intruders entered their home.

Small items were stolen and the couple was unharmed.

In April last year, a domestic worker was killed at the home of Tutu's daughter. Forty-year-old Angila Machinga's body was found inside the Milnerton house with her hands and feet bound.

She'd been stabbed several times.
