CAPE TOWN - No arrests have been made following a burglary at Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu's Milnerton home earlier this week.

This is the second break-in this year at the Arch's Cape Town home.

Tutu has undoubtedly had an emotionally draining week while bidding farewell to his close friend, Madiba.

Burglars seized the opportunity to break into his residence while he attended a memorial service in honour of Madiba in Soweto on Tuesday.

Several people on Twitter have suggested the Tutu family are the ones in need of an urgent security upgrade.

Meanwhile, the Arch and his wife have tweeted a message of thanks to all South Africans who have expressed concern for their safety and well-being.
